On July 7, Course of the Force will kick off with an event at the Santa Monica Pier at 10:00 a.m. The relay will start later in the day and end that night at the Redondo Beach Pier.

Fans have the opportunity to participate in the historic lightsaber relay through various promotions or by registering online now at One hundred percent of runner proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish.

Forum Housekeeping:
Moved to the "Off-Topic Chat." (Instead of "General Discussion" for Comic-Con, since it is not directly related to SDCCI experiences, tips/advice, etc.)

Transmute Jun:
Sorry. We had been discussing this event in the 'outside events' threads in the general discussion before.

It's okay.  Just trying to keep things organized. ^_^ (Don't worry about it if moderators randomly move things around to help with making the forum more easily viewable.)

Thanks for your contributions, Transmute!

Back on-topic:
I don't think I'll be able to make it to this, but it sounds really cool!  Man, having no car in San Diego, it's quite a ways away for me... unless I go home for the weekend before SDCCI... Hmmm~m... *evil gears in motion*

Ha ha.

Chris Hagish:
I HATE that it ends at 12:30pm on preview night....i am already in line by a few hours at that point...people please take loads of pictures. Lame that i will miss out on a cool event but then again SDCC is always about choosing what you want more.
