Wilmer Valderrama Completes Comic Con’s ‘Course Of The Force’ Light Saber Race
Wilmer Valderrama and Chris Hardwick were two of many celebrities who participated in Comic Con 2013’s "Course of the Force," which concluded on Tuesday. Nerdist and Lucasfilm’s ‘Course of the Force’ (COTF) is a 500-mile light saber relay race that benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This is the second completion of the race.
Valderrama and Hardwick ran quarter-mile segments in the last portions of the race, which began on July 9 at Skywalker Ranch, just north of San Francisco. The COTF light saber traveled through San Francisco, Santa Monica and Pacific Beach before arriving in San Diego Tuesday night.
Other celebrities who ran in the relay include Chris Colfer, Alyson Hannigan, Analeigh Tipton, Kyle Newman, and Aimee Teegarden, among many others. Star Wars characters R2-D2, Boba Fett, and Darth Vader also participated.
