Run for It, or Superstar Road-2, is the second course of Superstar Road in New Super Mario Bros. U. It is unlocked when the player collects every Star Coin in Layer-Cake Desert.


The course is based off the desert levels in Layer-Cake Desert. The main gimmick of this level is that there are no platforms present, but instead there are many groups of coins that turn into Brick Blocks when a P Switch is hit. The player will need to run to and hit several P Switches as quickly as possible before time runs out in order to finish the level.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is found inside a box of Brick Blocks.
  • Star Coin 2: The player needs to jump off a Paratroopa in order to safely get the second Star Coin. (See picture)
  • Star Coin 3: The final Star Coin is located at the end of the stage, right before the Goal Pole. The player needs to time their jump so that they land on a platform of Brick Blocks right when the P Switch's time runs out.
