Are you ready to channel the power of the dark side? The inaugural runDisney Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side race – kicks off in Walt Disney World this weekend, and runners will be able to test their Force abilities (aka running skills) during the Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k. If you’re still planning your race outfit, or just want to channel a bit of Star Wars for your next run, we put together three looks inspired by the dark side.

Darth Vader still holds the torch for the ultimate Star Wars villain, but we wanted to create a look inspired by Kylo Ren from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. His monochromatic, but detailed black look is ideal for playing with textures in your outfit. A few red flourishes make for the perfect nod to his unique red lightsaber.

You really can’t have the dark side without Stormtroopers. With their iconic white and black design there’s plenty of room for you to be creative and interpret Stormtroopers in your own way. The leggings were the statement piece for us, mashing up both white and black to create a Stormtrooper-inspired look.

Who says the dark side has to only be dark colors? Don’t be afraid to stand out in a palette that isn’t traditionally evil. A pink Darth Vader tank will show you mean business, while these fun Star Wars patterned leggings bring the Galactic Empire to life in a new way.
Who will you be channeling at runDisney’s Star Wars Half Marathon – the dark side?
