About This Activity

Star Wars fans or any Sci/Fi Fans come to the Run of the Galaxy. It may be on May the Seventh, but its a May the Fourth Be With You event. We invite you to come in or out of costume, but please be respectful of others when bringing props or costume-wear. Come dressed as your favorite nerfherder or princess, imperial or rebel, swing around that saber, push a stroller/pod racer down the track, or come as any other sci/fi character.

Each Registered participant will recieve a galactic medal. There is an amazing t-shirt you can purchase as well. Participants will race around the track while Rebels and Imperials fight around them. Get pictures with the local Star Wars costumers and make sure to participate in the costume contest! Enjoy the Award Ceremony, and lots of other activites!
