    Wahhhhh....I'll be missing out on this one. I'm boarding a cruise ship that Saturday with my MIL & SIL. I could squeeze in the 10K, but it might stress my MIL out if I do it.

    Okay, just saw the Rival Run news, and I'm not understanding the difference. Is it just a matter of theming?

    Yep just changing the theme from Dark Side to rivals. They are likely doing this because there is no light side race in Disneyland.

    I love that they're doing this! The minor tweaks each DS weekend have kept it fresh, IMO. My money's on a spinner medal for the Rival Challenge: Dark on one side, Light on the other. Turn to whichever side you ran for. ♥
