Not gonna lie.
Not because the concept isn’t cool. I mean, who doesn’t want to wear giant green Hulk hands and run down Main Street U.S.A. yelling “SMASH THE HALF! SMASH THE HALF!”
I was just hoping that they’d choose a different galaxy where people use lightsabers and blasters and wear honey bun hairdos and speak Yoda.
Because if they did, they could call it the Star Wars Hyperspace Half Marathon Weekend of Epic Intergalactic Awesome (Course for the Force is already taken) and these things could actually happen.
1. Race Bling
FINISHER’S MEDALS THE SIZE OF THE DEATH STAR. It’s the ultimate collector’s challenge! There would 4 medals to earn: Skywalker Family 5k, R2-10k, Hyperspace Half, and if you ran all three, you’d complete the Trench Run Challenge and be one with the Force. (Except not dead. Train, you will.)
2. The Force
Sensing a disturbance in the Force would finally be a good thing.
Running at night, under a canopy of stars, would instantly transport everyone to a galaxy far, far away.
4. Star Tours
We would finally get to run past the place where all the adventures continue! The music alone makes the idea of it epic.
5. Race Costumes
Star Wars fans don’t mess when it comes to their cosplay. (Bonus points for flannel. And beards!)
