Some very special fans will be getting into the action this year, as a number of celebrities have announced their (costumed) involvement in the race. Among the geek luminaries set to appear are Chris Colfer (Glee) Adrianne Curry (America’s Next Top Model), Wilmer Valderamma (That 70’s Show), Alexis Denisof (Angel), Jamie King (Sin City) and Molly Quinn (Castle), with many others joining the race as well. Each celebrity is set to run a quarter-mile segment of the race, and you can be sure they’ll be just as excited to carry the saber as your average scruffy nerf herder.
