Feel the Force Day 2018

Feel the Force Day 2018

Well what an amazing event we had ..  This was the first year that we had brought out the bling, and had a stand at any convention and what better place to start than the mighty Feel the Force Day.

This event is the reason why a team of us run our way around Disneyland Paris every September, the reason we are so passionate about getting as many people to support us, the reason Sam gets all Bob Geldoff on you every year – and it is quite simply amazing.

Ben worked late the friday night before the event to make the display stands for the medals (which looked amazing as you can see in the pic above). We took medals from the past 3 years, race tshirts and as much info, maps, bibs and photos that Sam could cram into a scrap book to show what the Magic Run Weekend is all about.

Every thing was laid out and ready and we thought a couple of people would come and have a chat but we weren’t expecting much. The stand was busy all day, with people interested in what what, where and why. So many people have said they would like to join the team or support us in some way and we lost count of the amount of people who thanked us and said they were proud of our achievement .. it was humbling and made every step worth while.

Highlights were .. well there were so many – Ben of course wore his Tinkerbell costume for part of the day which went down a storm, Stitch danced on stage with the wildcats dance group, Sam explained about the run about a million times and didn’t have to break out the Geldoff once 🙂 and we had the cutest little blind girl who came over and felt every medal whilst we explained what was on them, the colours and which race it was for .. she was lovely and exactly the reason we wanted to share our medals with everyone.

So we have decided that we would love to bring Run 4 Feel the Force day, all the info and medals to as many events between now and the next run weekend as possible. We already raise money inbetween runs as part of the East Kent Costume Club and at other conventions we attend as traders or cosplayers – but we would love to take the stand and Run 4 Feel the Force Day on the road.

If we can attend a convention near you please contact us and let us know. We only need a standard pitch to display the bling and run a small tombola. To spread the word about Feel the Force Day and the amazing work the team do, whilst publising the run and raising some funds would be fantastc.

2018 Medals

The 2018 Medals have been revealed and they really have pushed the boat out this year with the villans theme.

The kids races are themed around Stitch so he is the main feature of the Kids Race medal. The are still the lightweight rubber style which makes sense for the kids, but we are loving the design.

5k is Marvel villians so the theme is Thanos and the infinity stones – the lanyard features the Avengers logo and Thanos’ glove

10k is Disney villian side kicks and has a Hercules theme

The 21k (Half marathon) features a running Sorcerer Mickey with the Sleeping Beauty castle

31k challenge medal is Maleficent themed .. with the traditional disney villian purple and green themed lanyard

36k challange is all about the steampunk style mechanical dragon (as features in the parade)

And last but not least the Castle to Chateau is as beautiful as ever

The team can not wait to see these in the flesh (so to speak) .. and every medal we earn will be heading to the Incredible Feel the Force Day on the 6th of October . If you are thinking of going, please make sure you grab your tickets as they will sell out quickly .. a bargain at just £4 – carers go free.
