Course of the Force is 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. It's fun, it's geeky, and it's for a good cause!
Runners make their way south, handing off the light saber every quarter mile until they reach San Diego Comic Con International.
The run is taking place right now, but it kicked off on the 7th, in Santa Monica, and we were there, along with rabid Star Wars fans, Nerdist's Chris Hardwick, Ashley Eckstein (the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and even Chewbacca himself, Peter Mayhew! Check out the photos!
