STAR WARS fans, prepare to choose your side and join the Force in Southeast Asia’s first ever STAR WARS Virtual Run.
Registration is now open and participants can clock in their run distance from May the 4th – a date derived from the iconic phrase “May the Force Be With You”.
To celebrate STAR WARS Day, and the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, in collaboration with LIV3LY, Southeast Asia’s leading Social Fitness App, the STAR WARS Virtual Run is open to fans and runners from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
Runners can pledge their allegiance to the light or dark side and fight in the galaxy’s most epic virtual run on treadmills or any running path they choose.
Runners can opt to run solo in the 5.4km (Individual) or pair up with a friend in the 40km (Individual or Group of Two) where the distances can be completed all at once or over a period of time.
Runners will have to complete the distance by 31 May 2020 in order to be eligible for the Finisher Trophies. 40km finishers will receive an additional The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Trophy.
Registration can be done through the MOVE by LIV3LY app (available on the App Store and Google Play). Participants will have to activate the MOVE Run Tracker in the app before they are able to record their distances from 4 May – 31 May.
Limited edition merchandise will also be available for purchase through the app including a STAR WARS Pass Holder and Mobile Phone Stand. The merchandise on sale will be exclusive to Southeast Asia and available in limited quantity only.
Upon completion and verification by LIV3LY, the Finisher Trophy and any purchased merchandise will be sent to participants’ registered address.
