From July 7th through the 11th, lightsaber-toting nerds will be running up the coast of southern California, all the way to Comic Con.

The run's being sold off in quarter-mile chunks for the Make a Wish Foundation, and participants get a bunch of cool stuff like limited edition lightsabers. Each night of the run, the Course of the Force guys will be stopping in a town and having events, panels, and doing other geek-focused stuff. Check it out if you're in the area, or participate if you want to pre-empt all the awful you're going to put in your body at Comic Con. [Nerdist]
