Taking a plane, train, or car to Comic-Con this year? How about a run down the California coast with an added dash of Star Wars enthusiasm for charity instead? Today, Chris Hardwick, aka Nerdist Industries, kicks off the Course of the Force, an Olympic-torch-style relay run July 7-11 from Santa Monica to San Diego for Comic-Con, with proceeds benefiting the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Substitute lightsabers for the traditional torch, and we're on the path to the biggest geek event of the year!
Watch as Chris begins his journey in San Francisco at Lucas headquarters Industrial Light & Magic. And remember, beware cuddly ewoks.
