Fort Collins Comic Con

The 2020 Kessel Runners Couch-to-5K Program kicks off tomorrow!

Join us for our free, first run at Snack Attack - a Star Wars themed fun run that'll have you find your way on a bounty chip hunt with the Cerar Clan, a fierce Mandalorian guild. Most importantly, as guests of the guild, no one gets left behind.

This nerdy social running group is all about having fun and taking running one step at a time! No matter your age or ability, we’ll take you from the couch to lightspeed.

  • Check-in and Registration begin 10:30AM on Saturday, March 7th at Snack Attack (120 W Stuart Street, Fort Collins).
  • Parking: Kessel Runners can park in front of Snack Attack, or in the parking lot across College. Avoid parking in the Sips or Housing parking structures - possibility of getting ticketed and/or towed!
