A group of athletes hailing from Portland using the Nike Running app recently put together a series of visual running routes shaped like characters from the upcoming Star Wars film. The routes outline the faces and shapes of personas like Darth Vader , the AT-AT and the Stormtroopers to capture a detailed aerial view of their running exploits.

The Nike Running app is known as a GPS fitness tracker that is able to map out and keep tabs on the user's running course via their smartphone device. Planning ahead, runner Gene Lu mapped out a series of routes in the shapes of Star Wars characters so the end result would feature a map with the galactic characters highlighted through streets and turns.
