The Force Be With You

Limited edition merchandise will also be available for STAR WARS fans to purchase.
In collaboration with LIV3LY, Southeast Asia’s leading Social Fitness App, the STAR WARS Virtual Run is open to fans and runners from Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. Runners can pledge their allegiance to their chosen side – light or dark – and fight in the galaxy’s most epic virtual run on treadmills or any running path they choose.
What is a Virtual Run?
When we say runs, we usually think of the big fun runs with hundreds of participants. Well, a virtual run is a different thing. It is more of a collaborative running that is being tracked by an app. For this one, LIV3LY will be the partner fitness app. Runners may 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 September 30 2020 in order to be eligible for the Finisher Trophies.
Finishers of the 40km distance will receive an additional The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Trophy. Registration can be done through the MOVE by LIV3LY app, which is available for download on App Store and Google Play. Participants will have to activate the MOVE Run Tracker in the app before they are able record their distances from 5 June – 30 September 2020.
Limited edition merchandise will also be available for purchase through the app including a STAR WARS Pass Holder and Mobile Phone Stand.
