Geek Out: Lightsaber Relay for Make-A-Wish Foundation

From July 7-11, athletic Star War fans will be geeking out at the “Course of the Force”, an “Olympic-style lightsaber relay that all aspiring Jedi Knights can take part in”.

The inaugural five-day journey from Santa Monica to San Diego is a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundations of Southern California. The relay event is timed to arrive in San Diego for Comic-Con.

From Course of the Force:

At quarter-mile markers (much less than 12 parsecs), participants will hand off the official Course of the Force lightsaber to the next runner as they begin their leg of the journey. Participants in the relay are encouraged to come decked out in their best Star Wars, or pop culture-themed running gear. Ancient Jedi Masters carried within backpacks are not required.

Nerdist Industries’ founder Chris Hardwick and co-hosts will follow the action from the Course of the Force lead vehicle each day, broadcasting live to the Nerdist platform, including its YouTube channel. Machinima, the leading next generation video entertainment network for gamers, will produce and simulcast exclusive Course of the Force content through its multi-channel video network and will provide promotion for the event.

A limited number of running spots are available to the general public. The cost to sign up is $500 and 100% of registrations benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Runners will receive a Star Wars Ultimate FX lightsaberTM along with other gifts celebrating the Force.
