In the lead-up to the Olympics, the most accomplished athletes and dignitaries bring a torch around the world. In the lead-up to San Diego Comic-Con (July 12-15), dedicated individuals run a lightsaber around Southern California.
Course of the Force is a race complete with an official Hasbro Ultimate FX Course of the Force lightsaber that runs from Santa Monica to San Diego July 7-11. Participants run in quarter-mile increments bringing the lightsaber to Comic-Con.
You can check out the full schedule (and get your nerd on with themed parties throughout the race!) over on the official Course of the Force website.
