Start off with the Event guide. Here you will find all of the information on the courses, hours, and also tips and tricks for the races.
Once you have reviewed the Event Guide, make sure to get your waivers here!! You will need to download all waivers, print them and bring them to the Expo with your ID to get your bibs. If you are doing Rebel Challenge, make sure to get your picture taken before you head upstairs to get your shirt!
To get your bib number, it will be in the bottom right hand corner of the waiver along with your t-shirt size. You can then match it up to the corral listings below. Make sure you are looking at the right chart or you will be very confused!
Also, check out the igiftbag! Make sure to get the free bookmark coupon from Lasting Commeratives. There are also many coupons for Havaianas, Dr. Cool, Champion, Apex, Fit2Run, MarathonFoto, Fond Memories Graphics, ESPN Zone, SMS Audio and more. These igiftbags are very similar from race to race but there are still some good tips and things to check out.
One last thing, make sure to sign up for Runner Tracking. You can use this link here or just text swhm [bib number] to 72147 . I track myself so I know my projected finishing time along with tracking my friends for the same reason.
So let's hop into reviewing the courses.
The corrals are definitely interesting for sure. Sub 2:21 for corral A? i think the course will be congested and the character lines long (2500 people in that corral alone!) so I will need to get into corral A early so I can start towards the middle of the pack. I think with the backstage start, it will be crowded because it will be narrow. We will see though! Honestly, the cosplayers were so epic last year, that we may skip some of the character lines in favor of that. Since I am running all 3 races, I am assuming many of the characters will be across all 3 courses, so I want to at least get one stop at all of those.
I am VERY excited for this. I am excited to see who they have out on the course and I cant wait to see if any new characters appear (like Black Widow and Hawkeye did for Avengers last year). If Rey and Finn and Poe are out-I will freak out!!
Anyone else running Star Wars?
