And only if you fulfill it and give your contribution to other people’s lives, you can feel happy. The other is just letting your life pass by. Buying a donation ticket for the Legion Run is just a small gesture by anyone who prefers to be useful to others and inspired by himself to achieve difficult goals in life.

Enhanced safety measures

The organizers have provided a detailed safety plan to protect participants from the spread of infections. It was developed in collaboration with the world’s leading organizers of Obstacle Course (OCR) events, with which a joint working group was established in 2020. The plan has four options and ensures that the Legion Run will take place in all circumstances, even under the most severe possible measures (as long as there is not a full lockdown by the government to get out of our homes).

“Research over the past months has continued to show that socially remote sports carry a minimal risk of infection compared to other daily activities, such as shopping or eating out. By promoting distance, the event industry proves that being outside and moving is better for everyone’s health than being “stuck” in front of a computer all day. After our event in Sofia in July 2021 – we have done a monitoring and as far as we managed to confirm, there wasn’t a single positive case among our participants in the 2 weeks after the event” says Ivaylo Matev Legion Run is a brand that quickly grows in number of events and participants, that until now took place in France, Italy (Rome), Israel, Malaysia, Greece, Hungary, Bulgaria, Lithuania (Vilnius), Ukraine (Kiev).
