The Force was strong with Brazilian runners Discon Falcao and Aline Freitas on Sunday at Walt Disney World, as both were the male and female winners of the 13.1-mile Star Wars Rival Run half marathon.
Falcao’s win marked the third year in a row that a Brazilian has claimed the top spot in the Star Wars-themed race; his finishing time was 1:15:25. Freitas finished with a time of 1:28:22.
Sunday’s Rival Run was the fourth-annual Star Wars-themed race at Walt Disney World, leading into a summer of Star Wars offerings highlighted by the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in August. The four-day race weekend also featured a health and fitness expo, a 5K, 10K, and kids races.
More than 41,000 runners took part in the races, which featured Star Wars-themed merchandise, food and beverage offerings, character encounters, and finisher medals.
