I have only ever participated in one ‘real’ Run Disney event. I survived the 10k run during the inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon at Disneyland several years ago. I dressed up but I wish I had thought more about all the Star Wars Run Disney Costumes, there are so many fun ideas out there.
I am sharing some great Star Wars half marathon costume ideas, it’s never too early to start planning the most important part of a RunDisney event, what you will wear!! 😉
Personally I hope RunDisney events return to the Disneyland Resort but for now, you will have to settle for Walt Disney World. Once you commit to running, and training for a RunDisney marathon, you need to start planning your costume too. Why run in boring regular clothes, we all know costumes make everything better. Costume and cupcakes. 😉
DIY Star Wars Running Costume Tutorials:
I’ve rounded up some awesome DIY Star Wars Running Costume tutorials and linked to even more ideas and pictures from previous Star Wars Marathons to inspire you! Whether you go elaborate or simple, a Star Wars costume is a must!

If I was running in an upcoming Star Wars Half Marathon at Disneyland or Walt Disney World this year, then I would work with my Princess Leia Hoth Halloween costume.
It’s an easy and comfy costume, perfect for running in! I actually braided my hair and pinned my hair like Leia’s on Hoth for Halloween but anyone could pull off a Princess Leia Headband . I found my pieces locally at discount stores and consignment stores but Amazon is always easy with prime shipping and returns. Just pick up a white t-shirt, comfy white pants, and a white vest.
Chewbacca is definitely one of my favorite Star Wars characters and he’s an easy costume for both guys and girls to pull off with a Chewbacca t-shirt or Chewbcca costume tank. Add brown leggings and a brown running skirt and you are set!
R2-D2 is also a fun t-shirt costume idea. Pick up an R2-D2 costume shirt, blue running skirt, white leggings and even a pair of R2-D2 Mickey Ears and you will look adorable without breaking a sweat… at least until you actually start running. Then you’ll likely get pretty sweating and gross. 😉
This Ewok hooded tank is adorable and also perfect for an easy Star Wars running costume idea. Again brown leggings and a brown sparkle skirt finish it off.
