Want to be "fit to be king" - or in this case, as fit as an L.A. King? Then you've found your running club, right here in Manhattan Beach.

The "Fit to Be King" Runners Club is a 15-week-long commitment that includes Sunday runs and culminates in the L.A. Kings 5K Run. The group is led by Kings commentator and former Kings star Daryl Evans.

For $100, membership includes 15 weeks of training with Evans, appearances from the LA Kings Ice Crew, runners club merchandise, American Heart Association health challenges and a tracking card, weekly check-ins, and entry to the L.A. Kings 5K run in September.

The group meets each Sunday morning in Manhattan Beach, at a location given out to members before the run.

Non-local Kings fans who want to participate can join for $40, which includes runners club merchandise, weekly check-ins, and the American Heart Association health challenges and tracking card.

Evans is a popular former Kings player, famous for having scored the goal known as the "Miracle on Manchester" in 1982. He leads many clinics throughout the year for both ice hockey and fitness.

The L.A. Kings 5K will take place in Redondo Beach on September 17, with proceeds benefiting the Hydrocephalus Association.

Registration for the run club is available at
