Lucasfilm Ltd., Nerdist Industries and Octagon have teamed up to present Course of the Force, an Olympic torch style relay run using a lightsaber instead!

The participants will make the journey from Santa Monica to San Diego benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Every quarter-mile the participants will hand off the official Hasbro Ultimate FX Course of the Force lightsaber to another runner, to continue the journey.

The Course of the Force starts Saturday July 7th and will make its way to the annual San Diego Comic Con International.

Leading the Lightsaber’s journey will be a 25-foot replica of Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge from Return of the Jedi.
