There’s a Star Wars neon run coming to Melbourne

As part of 2019’s ‘May the Fourth’ celebrations, Melbourne will welcome the first-ever Aussie Star Wars Neon Run next month. And yes, it’s taking place on the appropriate date of Saturday, May 4, 2019, aka Star Wars day.

The world-class, interactive experience will see participants enjoy a five-kilometre night-time run in Yarra Park with five Star Wars-inspired installations and zones, where you’ll need to hide from storm troopers, party with droids and avoid the temptation of the Dark Side.

Better yet, feel the force awaken at the after-party featuring Mashd n Kutcher, interactive activation areas and merchandise.

In true ‘May the Fourth’ style, participants are encouraged to dress up as their favourite Star Wars characters.
