Course of the Force

Lucasfilm Ltd., Nerdist Industries and Octagon have teamed up to present Course of the Force, an Olympic torch style relay run with lightsabers, where participants will make a journey from Santa Monica to San Diego while benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

At quarter-mile markers (much less than 12 parsecs), participants will hand off the official Hasbro Ultimate FX Course of the Force lightsaber to the next runner as they begin their leg of the journey. Course of the Force will take place July 7-11, in the days leading up to the annual San Diego Comic Con International.

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 andStarWars.com.

As the Course makes its stops along the iconic California coast, Star Wars™-themed parties, contests and live Nerdist shows will cap off each day for fans to enjoy.
