Announcing the 2019 Kessel Runners
Couch-to-5K Program

The Kessel Run is right around the corner, so strap on your shoes and gather your furriest friends because it’s time to smuggle some spice with FC3’s newest group: the Kessel Runners!

This nerdy social running group is all about having fun and taking running one step at a time! No matter your age or ability, we’ll take you from the couch to lightspeed.

For just $30, here’s what you can look forward to:

  • two group runs per week that slowly step up in intensity so you can level up at a fun pace!
  • beating baddies like Bowser, Jurassic Park’s T-Rex, and outrunning Sith and zombies!
  • free weekly cross-training events! (parkour, rock wall climbing, yoga, LARPing, etc.)!
  • an exclusive Facebook group to connect to your fellow runners, share motivation, and stay connected!
  • weekly emails featuring information about technique, equipment, and motivation!
  • PRIZES!
  • hanging out with your fellow runners at nerdy locales!
  • reveling in your favorite fandoms!
  • finally being able to outrun the T-Rex!
Upon joining, you’ll be inducted into a team after filling out a brief personality survey. With your teammates, you’ll work towards earning loot and infamy all while getting your blood pumping.

So what do you say? Let’s live long and prosper!
