Hi everyone,

Get your Kessel Run on!

Get your Kessel Run on!

This weekend marks the inaugural running of the Star Wars Half Marathon in California. And if you’re like me, you spent large chunks of your childhood quoting lines from Luke Skywalker & Company.

I’ve already heard some fun Star Wars running puns like: “May the course be with you.”

So I’ve decided to add a few of my own.


“No way in hell I’m letting the wookie win.”

“I find your lack of faith and chafed nipples disturbing.”

“I’m not worried about ‘the wall.’ It’s the sarlaac pit that freaks me the hell out.”

“I plan to make this Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs… maybe 11.”

“Slowest podrace ever.”

“Your weapons and GPS, you will not need them.”

“And I thought the runners smelled bad on the outside.”

“But I was going to go to Toshie Station to pick up some power converters… and power bars.”

“You will never find a more wretched hive of scum an villainy… and they’re sweaty too.”

“When Sandpeople race they run single file to hide their numbers.”

“I’ve got a bad feeling about this… and I’m kinda gassy.”

“Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating this race course is approximately 3,720 to 1.”

“There is a great disturbance in my shorts.”

May the force be with you… and Run on!

(Got your own Star Wars running pun to add? Let’s hear ’em)

  1. Help me, Obi Wan Keflezighi, you’re my only hope.
    He’s using an old Kenyan mind trick.
    These aren’t the Asics we’re looking for. Move along.
    I am altering the last 5K of this course. Pray I do not alter it further.
    Your over-confidence is your weakness. Your faith in your training is yours.
    Pace? Judge me by my pace do you? And well you should not.
    There . . . is . . . another . . . Galloway-trained run-walker.
    That’s no moon. It looks like an aid station.

    I could probably do this all day . . . but I’ll stop here.

    • Ha. Real good stuff Chris. My original list was way longer too. You can just go on and on and on. Apparently the “farce” is strong with you.
