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 on the desert levels in Layer-Cake Desert. Throughout the level, players need to hit P Switches to turn coins into Brick Blocks, which act as the main platforms of the level. The level begins on a platform with a ? Block containing a power-up and a P Switch. A long line of Brick Blocks is crossed, with Piranha Plants in Warp Pipes acting as obstacles. Another P Switch is found, followed by more Brick Block structures and Piranha Plants. Some Brick Block platforms are located above a pit, followed by a section of Brick Blocks in between two Warp Pipes. A P Switch is found at the bottom, leading to another row of Brick Blocks with Koopa Troopas on it. More platforms are found, with Paratroopas in between. A P Switch can be found above a Koopa Troopa, followed by a section of moving Brick Block platforms. A P Switch is found on the ceiling of a section of ground, followed by more platforms and the Goal Pole.

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 above a pit or use a Propeller Mushroom or Super Acorn to safely get the second Star Coin.
  • 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.
