25 tons of ice, 200 km of cables and dozens of containers full of equipment weighing 200 tons will land in Israel straight from Paris. According to organizers, NIS 3 million have been invested in the event.
The extreme obstacle course is 5km long and includes more than 30 obstacles of mud, fire, ice and wire designed to challenge the participants. In addition, there are also several headlining obstacles such as the “Collosus” — a smooth, concave wall 7.5 meters high that participants have to climb without a rope, the “Coliseum” — crushing a car, the “Censura” — jumping from wooden beams to different platforms and the “Barbarian” — crawling under a wet net in a muddy maze.
Additionally, there are swimming obstacles involving ice blocks and muddy water in which participants need to swim through and climb out that are designed to push participants to their physical and mental limits.
The Legion Run is a team sport whose object is to conquer the course together and is geared toward companies, families, friends from army units or people choosing to compete alone. The track is open to anyone over the age of 16, whether they are physically fit or not. The oldest person to compete in the event until now was 87 years old.
Those who book tickets early only pay NIS 184, while those who pay at the event will pay NIS 300.
