It's not quite 12 parsecs, but the non-competitive Kessel Run run/walk will follow the block around the Library, featuring some fun activities and obstacles along Annie's Walk (the diagonal path).
It is free to participate in the Kessel Run.
A $15 suggested donation benefits Poudre River Public Library District, $25 if you would like a Kessel Run shirt (must order by 4/15).
Check-in begins at 5PM, opening ceremonies at 5:30PM with prizes for best costumes.
Afterward, join us at Dungeons & Drafts for a Star Wars celebration!
Food trucks will be available on-site.
Here are just a few of the activity stations:

At 5:30PM here's what's happening inside the Library during the Opening Ceremonies:
- Droid and Character Meet + Greets (w/ photos!)
- "Best Of Show" Costume Prizes

At 6PM the Run/Walk/Activity Stations begin:
- 7.5 laps around the Library is approximately 5K. You can run, walk, skip, or levitate through the course. Please be courteous and considerate as you navigate.
- At 7PM the Kessel Runners Awards ceremony begins for this year's Kessel Runner's Training Group and we'll announce our candidates for next year's group!

- Cosplay is encouraged! Prop blasters should be "orange tipped" and peace-bonded
- Parking will be VERY limited, so plan to walk in from a block or two out
- We'll have a limited number of Kessel Run t-shirts available on-site for $20
- It's free to participate, but you can make an optional donation which benefits the Poudre River Public Library District
