Legion Run, 14/04/18

Although the Legion Run brand was born just a few years ago we are quickly growing in the number of events and the number of participants per event.   
We are a team of highly motivated, fun loving risk takers that vary in age, culture, gender, taste and backgrounds. We are just like each one of you. And that’s what makes our events so amazing. We create things that scare us, challenge us, are fun for us and make us work as a team.
Our obstacles are designed to test your mind and body. Each one of them is designed with great attention to detail in order to provide the ultimate challenge and fun without compromising on safety. We here.are probably one of very few in this industry which have obstacles civil engineered, blueprinted and built by licensed contractors.
