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 4, 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.

IS LEGION RUN A COMPETITION? Feel free to challenge yourself and your teammates with this course – but it is neither a race nor a competition… We don’t time you at all!
There will be no prizes, no certificates – but we also love doing surprises so who knows.
You will, however, finish with an exclusive “ I Am Legion” shirt, medal, a beer in your hand and an absolute high knowing you conquered quite a feat!
There will also be new friendships, cool images for your social media account, a bruise or a scrape here and there… plus really muddy shoes that you will have to figure out how to clean afterwards!

DO I NEED A TEAM TO PARTICIPATE?
It’d be great if you came along with your own group, but for as long as you are willing to help yourself and others, you can participate!
If you don’t have a team though, do not hesitate to buy an individual ticket. You will find that you will not be bored at the event, not even for a minute, even if you wanted to! The obstacles are designed in such a way that each and every participant will be a part of one massive team with one goal.
You will run side-by-side with hundreds of other participants and will most definitely make some spontaneous friendships along the course (yes, just one of the Legion Run course side effects!)
Share your strengths and do not leave anyone behind!
HOW DO I CREATE A TEAM?
All you need to do is pay for the first ticket. During the signup process you will be asked to set up the team name, generate a secret code and voila! Your team has just been created.
People you invite to the team may then join whenever they want by entering the secret team code.
Upon registration everyone pays for their own ticket individually but benefit from the team discount.
• How to join my team?
Just fill in the registration form, add your team name and the secret team code in the appropriate fields. It’s as simple as that!
• How many people can be on a team?
It’s entirely up to you!
However to benefit from the team discount, a minimum number of 25 team members apply.
SHOULD I TRAIN FOR LEGION RUN?
Some follow strict diets and workout routines. Others eat 2 minute noodles and regularly participate in drinking sessions.
Either training plan is fine by us.
What we do require is for you to train yourself to be aware when another person needs your help.
We will soon announce a Team of Fitness Trainer with their contact details.
I CAN’T SWIM. CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE?
Though we have numerous water obstacles, none of them require basic swimming skills.
All you need is the courage to start and go through with it.
ARE MINORS ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE?
Our participants may act like grown-up children most of the time, but they all are over 18.
There will be activities for spectators though so children and non-registered adults may enjoy what our partners have to offer outside the course.
We will be allowing 16-18 year old teenagers to participate with their registered guardians (family or relatives).
WHAT DO I RECEIVE AFTER I REGISTER?
You will receive a confirmation mail immediately after registration online. This will include your ticket as well as a waiver form. Please print it, read the attached waiver carefully and then sign it.
Additionally, in the week before the event, we will send you two more emails with useful info such as recommendations, list of must-haves and directions on how to reach us.
I HAVE NOT YET RECEIVED A CONFIRMATION EMAIL. WHAT DO I DO?
Please check your spam folder first.
If you still can’t find the confirmation mail, notify us at email@example.com and we’ll fix things up for you.
CAN I TRANSFER MY TICKET TO SOMEONE ELSE/ANOTHER EVENT?
Yes. Changes are possible up to two weeks before the event date. Change fees may apply.
CAN I GET A REFUND?
Refunds will only be done in cases where legion run itself cancels the event.
Under no other circumstances will a refund be allowed.
When should I arrive?
We recommend you arrive an hour before the wave you want to participate in starts. the waves will be every 20 minutes with 175 people in each wave.
GUN STARTS at 8:00AM. Kit Claiming and Check in is open starting 6AM.
Allow yourself enough time to park, register, warm up.
Take in the setup of the event grounds and familiarize yourself with it.
This will be a good chance for you to check out the activities with your group as well as shop, eat and get to know the other people joining the fun!
Keep in mind that, if you come late, you may not be able to join your team’s wave and will have to run in the next available wave.
What do I need to bring in order to check in?
Bring a valid government ID (ID card, passport or driving license) plus your printed and signed ticket.
What should I wear?
Anything you feel comfortable wearing while running, jumping, climbing and crawling through mud is fine. Recommended:
• Half-finger training (grip) gloves
• Long tights / compression pants
• Knee high socks
• Sports shoes
During the run, do NOT wear anything that you would not want it to be covered with mud all over. Don’t think so much about looking cool, be practical and wear clothes you won’t be worried about. But if you won’t be worried about wearing a costume, your pyjamas or your favorite dress then by all means go for it for as long as you can do the course in it! It is meant to be fun after all!
How long does it take to run the course?
Finish time depends on you and your team, on whether you are competitive by nature or you are doing the course just for the fun of it. The average finish time is an hour and a half.
Am I allowed to skip obstacles?
Of course! Remember?! This is not a competition, so there are no penalties for bypassing.
In fact, we actively encourage you to skip obstacles if you are even the slightest bit unsure. Feel free to just take photographs, videos or cheer people on if you choose to bypass.
The idea is to challenge one’s self and have fun, not to be terrified and get injured to the point of not having fun anymore!
Will there be food and drinks on site?
Along the course there will be several stations with free water and sports drink for all the participants. There will also be food and drink vendors on site offering something for everyone, so please don’t bring food and drinks with you.
Will there be medical help?
Yes. Several first aid teams will be positioned along the course, ready to assist immediately if medical help is needed.
Medical city south Luzon is also 500 meters away from the event premises.
Will there be any after-party?
Why after?! The whole event itself is a priceless party – there will be food, drinks, music and some happy muddy creatures wandering around.
TRANSPORT, PARKING, FACILITIES
The location map and GPS coordinates are listed on your event page.
Additionally, in the week before the event we will email you the directions to the site. In the meantime, keep an eye on the Facebook page of your event for more news and updates.
Do you offer transport to the event location?
We don’t. However feel free to use the Facebook page of the event to search for or post ride-sharing announcements.
But who knows, surprises are everywhere. So stay tuned.
Will there be parking available at the event?
Yes, Paseo de Sta Rosa. Minimal fee applies.
Will there be showers and portalet?
Yes. Do not expect five-star facilities though. You’ll be able to hose down mud and sweat at the end of the course. We kindly ask all participants to use the shower facilities wisely in order to avoid unnecessary queues.
Spectators are surely allowed! The more the merrier!
The fun is definitely worth it!
They will also be able to choose their own activities from the host of event partners on the day!
Do you charge a spectator fee?
Am I allowed to walk the course along with the participants?
Hell yeah! We are among the few in the obstacle course industry that allow spectators to fully experience the event thrill. They are allowed to follow the participants at some of the course and take pictures. But please note that spectators must not get in the way of participants, attempt or complete obstacles.
Am I allowed to take pictures or make videos on site?
As many as you want! But if you represent a media, you need to request accreditation and provide us a copy of the footage afterwards.
Can minors and kids come as spectators?
Sure they can! There will be plenty of activities for them too! If you want to enjoy the Legion Run vibe to its fullest though, we recommend you make sure there is someone else attending to their needs while you are at the course.
Can I bring my dog?
Only k-9 and guide dogs will be allowed at the event.
We’re sure your pets are awesome but we’d like to protect them too from any harm from the event.
