Recently, it was announced on the Star Wars blog that Lucasfilm, Ltd will be launching Star Wars Fuel Your Force. This will be a commitment to a healthy lifestyle to help you find your “inner Force.” The MMCC thinks this is a great idea, and we are on board to help our friends at LFL to encourage all Star Wars fans to adopt a healthier lifestyle in 2019.
Our first step as a club is to announce the first ever Mandalorian Mercs Virtual 5K. For those that don’t know what a virtual 5K is, the process is simple. Registration will open on February 1, 2019 and run for one month. During that time, you will be able to go to the store and purchase your registration. The price of registration includes a participation t-shirt and a finishing medal. To participate, all you have to do is get out there and go 5 kilometers, approximately 3 miles. You can walk, run, crawl, jump, bike, or any other way you can think of that will get you out there and doing something fun. (No driving.) The shirt and medal will be run like a pre-order, so once the ordering period closes, they will be ordered, and then shipped to you. We do not require proof that you completed your 5K. Only you will know if you did it or not.
So, where’s the fun in that? We want you to get out there and try to do this as a group. Get your clan together and take a walk and maybe combine it with an armor party or a clan picnic. The possibilities are endless. In addition, if you are interested in competing, you can time your run and turn in your time for a chance at a first, second, or third place medal and the title of Mando Fit. These medals will be in addition to the finishing medal, and will be forged by Mandalore himself. Be sure to take plenty of pictures because we want to get the word out that the Mandos are ready to find their inner Force through the use of social media.
We look forward to sharing more ways to Fuel Your Force in the coming year! Stay tuned for more information about the Mandalorian Mercs Virtual 5K in the next month.
