If you’re an extremely organised soul and already looking to fill your 2019 event calendar—then we have an event that you’re going to need to write down.

May the 4th has become synonymous with Star Wars, these days even being referred to as ‘Star Wars Day’. In 2019 May 4 will see the first ever Star Wars Neon Run take place in Melbourne, a five-kilometre night run with unique zones inspired by the Star Wars movies.

The location of the run is yet to be announced, but participants will start and finish the run in the ‘main event village’ with the day ending with a massive after-party featuring live music, interactive areas, and, of course, merch.

The event is also helping to support a good cause.

Magpie Nest is the official charity partner for the Star Wars Neon Run which gives participants the opportunity to give back to the charity when buying their ticket.

Presale tickets are currently on sale until Friday 30 November.
