Obstacle mud run in Legion Run
For those who have not heard it, Legion Run is a unique mud run event that offers participants an endless fun 5 km / 3.10 mi run/walk through world class obstacles such as barbered wire, fire, ice and loads of mud and at the same time, due to its not competitive nature, it is open for all levels of physical fitness and ability.

All participants win a free beer, an exclusive “I am Legion” t-shirt and some bruises while for those who want to see what Legion Run is all about, you can watch the event for only €5 per person. Entrance is free for children under 12 years old.
So prepare yourself for an ultra exciting obstacle run and once you cross the finish line, you can celebrate with your friends and family as there will be lots of music and food to relax and party.
