Annual Lightsaber relay race & festival in Justin Herman Plaza
By - posted 7/9/2013 No Comment

Course of the Force is an Olympic style relay – but with lightsabers.

The relay, which benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation, is part of a week-long Star Wars event that runs from San Francisco to San Diego with the finish at San Diego Comic Con.

Cheer the costumed runners on starting at Pier 50 and then crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, and then join the party at “Conival” at Justin Herman Plaza on July 10, 2013 where the relay will pause so that fans can participate in mini conventions with games, food, live music, expo booths and more.
