No Star Wars race would be complete without a Darth Vader finishers medal. Participants of the half-marathon will receive the Sith Lord-themed medal.

The runDisney Star Wars Half-Marathon – The Dark Side race has released photos of what the finishers medals look like and they’re pretty amazing. From a Millennium Falcon medal to one with stormtroopers, the race at Walt Disney World in Florida is worth it for the medals themselves.

RunDisney also hosted a Star Wars event in January, the Light Side, but that event took place at Disneyland in California. The Dark Side edition will be held in Orlando from April 15-17 with a 5K, 10K, and half-marathon.

Stormtroopers are the face of the 5K race medal and the most colourful of the single-distance races. May the force be with you.
