Set your blasters to run! Move along with the turn-by-turn directions for this run via the link in my bio or at bit.ly/Stormtrooper_PDX. The run starts on SE Hawthorne Blvd and SE 10th Ave. Oh, and @john_boyega, if you're still missing a helmet, just saying. May the Force be with you! #stormtrooper #runwars #starwars #theforceawakens #theimperialmarch #laddsaddition #werunpdx #hypebeast #nikeplus #theartawakens #force1612
As first reported by City Lab, Lu is creating running routes throughout Portland to pay tribute to the latest installment of the Star Wars franchise.
So far Lu, who works as a creative director for advertising firm R/GA Portland, has so far created four routes ranging from four-plus to 15.5 miles and has uploaded specific instructions on how to replicate them here, here, and here.

Load up the directions before your next run and prepare for lightspeed. The run starts on SE 6th Ave and SE Stark St in Portland, OR.
