Comic-Con started a little early for us this year, we were invited to the Course of the Force Ending Ceremony.
Course of the Force was founded by Chris Hardwick’s group “Nerdist” and in collaboration with the Make-A-Wish foundation, 100% of all proceeds and registrations were donated to the foundation.
The event is a one week run that starts at Skywalker Ranch in the Bay Area and makes their way down the California Coast line and ends in San Diego just in time for Comic-Con. Each participant gets to run with a light sabre for an amount of time then passes it off to the next runner, much like the Olympic Torch, this is the nerdy version.
The final stop of the Run was at the Course of the Force party where we got to see the last two participants cross the finish line and hand the sabre to R2D2.
