The Legion is Here! Legion Run Philippines 2017

Update (January 19, 2017): This event has been CANCELLED.  From Legion Run Philippines (via email):

It is with a heavy heart that we wish to inform you that Legion Run Philippines is CANCELED.

The success of Legion Run relies heavily on the obstacles that have been civil engineered, blueprinted and built by licensed contractors.  Unfortunately, these need to be shipped from Bulgaria.  We have bumped into a shipping problem and determined that it would be impossible to have the container vans arrive in time for the March 4 event in Greenfield City.

We are saddened that Legion Run won’t push through, but we hope you’ll support us when we’ve sorted things out and hopefully be able to return at a future time.

One of the most successful and challenging race franchises in the world, Legion Run, has reached Philippine shores and will be having their debut this March!  Here is why this event is so successful and why it is as exciting as much as it is intimidating.

Yes, I got chills watching that video.  With at least 20 obstacles, the Legion Run is quite intimidating.  Just take a look at those obstacles!  They made all the past obstacle events in the country look like child’s play.  You’d get wet and muddy and you’d walk, crawl, climb, etc.  But it looks so exciting!  And I don’t really imagine doing this alone—I imagine doing this with friends like a team building activity (on steroids!).  There’s no time limit and cooperation is highly encouraged so as much as I’m intimidated by the obstacles, I’m also excited to conquer the challenges with friends!

Legion Run Set to Conquer the Philippines in 2017

A totally new outdoor experience is set to conquer the Philippines and excite people who love adventure, challenges and the outdoors in 2017.  Called the “Legion Run,” this event is a 5km team-oriented run with 20+ obstacles that offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience to people of all levels of physical fitness and ability, due to its non-competitive nature.

The Legion Run, which is to be held for the first time in the Philippines, is an international event where successful runs were held for the past years in different parts of the world such as France, Italy, Poland, Greece, Israel, Bulgaria and more.

The Philippine debut of the event, the second to be held in Asia, is set on March 04, 2017 at the Greenfield City in Laguna, Philippines.  There will be elements of mud, fire, ice and barbed wire all throughout the obstacle course and participants are expected to hurdle these by jumping, climbing and crawling.

Finishers complete the experience by conquering all these body and mental challenges, worthy enough for them to be regarded as true-blooded “legionnaires.”  Legionnaires can then celebrate their success with food, drinks and various post-event attractions that can be found in the Legion Run Festival Area.

Legion Run is more than just a run or an event.  It’s an experience of a lifetime.  Everyone participates for a different reason but they finish all the same; “changed.”  This isn’t a race and the only prize to win is Pride.  Legion Run is about overcoming personal challenges and the thrill of proving to yourself you CAN.  But most of all, it’s about getting out there and having FUN again.
