Lucasfilm Ltd., Nerdist Industries, Octagon and Machinima have teamed up to create an Olympic style torch run with lightsabers. The event, called “Course of the Force” will run from July 7-11, and stretch from Santa Monica to San Diego, finishing up in time for Comic-Con’s preview night.
Participants can purchase and run quarter-mile spots along the course before passing their lightsaber on to the next runner. Best of all is that the proceeds from the event will benefit the Make a Wish Foundation.
