The 2019 Kessel Run


Register for the 4th Annual Kessel Run/Walk You Must
Family-friendly 5K fun run/walk features Star Wars fan favorites, benefits children’s literacy

Punch it, Chewie! It’s time to register for the 4th annual family-friendly Kessel Run/Walk held on Saturday, May the 4th at Library Park and Old Town Library (201 Peterson St., Fort Collins). Last year, nearly 350 people took part in the activities hosted by Fort Collins Comic Con and Poudre River Public Library District.

Onsite check-in begins at 9:00 a.m. and is followed by a costume contest. Prizes for best Star Wars-inspired cosplay and other categories will be awarded. The fun run/walk starts at 10:00 a.m. and will happen rain, shine, or Dagobah fog. It’s a non-competitive 5K because we let the Wookie win.

The Kessel Run follows a route around Library Park that features fun activities and obstacles to test any Padwan, Jedi, or Sith Lord. No actual smugglers or unscrupulous freighter captains allowed; though there may be appearances by Star Wars fan favorites.

Participants can register online at There is a suggested $15.00 donation; all money donated directly benefits children’s literacy through the Library District.

Participants interested in an event t-shirt must register by April 15 to be guaranteed a shirt. A total donation of $25.00 is suggested to add a t-shirt to the registration.

May the Fourth Be With You.
