APRIL 14-17, 2016! DARK SIDE!
Here is the official website but I will summarize most of the information:
RACES: 5k, 10k, Half, Kids Races, Special Dark Side race challenge as well as special Kessel run coast to coast medal if you run both DL and WDW star wars half marathons
5K: Epcot course 6:00 AM start
10k: starts at Epcot will end at WWoS (yay for a new course!) 5:30 AM start
Half: start at Epcot, end at WWoS (I am guessing a backwards wine and dine course) 5:00 AM start
Kids races: at WWoS
Sign ups will be Sept 22nd with rumored AP sign up Sept 8th.
Looking at my training calendar today, I will be signing up for all 3 races as I was supposed to do a taper for Tinkerbell that included a 3 mile, 6 mile,14 mile run so I can just do the races at SW:DS and have an extended Taper. I will also be tapering for this race weekend but doing the Carlsbad all day 20k which should be fun!
I have already put in a request for a room rate and right now have a tentative plan of flying out on a redeye on Wednesday night, Expo thursday and rest, 5k on Friday, 10k on Saturday, Half on Sunday, sleep in and watch the Boston Marathon on Monday before drinking at Epcot and exploring flower and garden and then flying home tues morning (which will also give me the afternoon to get any homework done that I will miss).
Costumes have even been discussed! 3 potential ones (have not lined them up yet)

Kylo Ren (Adam driver's new character) with the cross light saber
