Legion Run Philippines CANCELLED

Please see the announcement of the organizer on the cancellation of the event

**********

Hi!

It is with a heavy heart that we wish to inform you that Legion Run Philippines is CANCELED.

The success of Legion Run relies heavily on the obstacles that have been civil engineered, blueprinted and built by licensed contractors. Unfortunately, these need to be shipped from Bulgaria. We have bumped into a shipping problem and determined that it would be impossible to have the container vans arrive in time for the March 4 event in Greenfield City.

We are saddened that Legion Run won’t push through, but we hope you’ll support us when we’ve sorted things out and hopefully be able to return at a future time.

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!
IgnitePhilippines Inc.
• 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?
Absolutely!
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 philippines@legionrun.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.

EVENT DAY
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 ridesharing
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
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?
No.

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.

UNDER ARMOUR Innovation went to RIO Olympics on the feet of US Olympian Swimmer Michael Phelps

UNDER ARMOUR Innovation went to RIO Olympics on the feet of US Olympian Swimmer Michael Phelps
UA ARCHITECH 3D PRINTED PERFORMANCE TRAINER & UA SLINGSHOT RUNNING FOOTWEAR TO PROVIDE PERSONAL MOTIVATION FOR ELITE SWIMMER


Under Armour, the global leader in innovative performance footwear, apparel and equipment has taken footwear innovation to the next level. In March, the Brand introduced its first-ever 3D printed performance trainer, the UA  . The UA Architech is a 360-degree performance training shoe that features a functional 3D printed midsole and 3D ClutchFit auxetic upper design that creates a “super-hybrid” trainer. This performance trainer provides athletes with the ultimate stability and cushioning to take on the most intense workouts, and it’s travelling all the way to Rio on the feet of elite swimmer, Michael Phelps.

In addition to the state-of-the-art technology and custom color design, Michael’s footwear features a personal touch to provide an additional source of motivation as he heads into competition. His 3-month old son, Boomer’s footprint is printed on the insole of the shoe as a personal reminder that Boomer is with him every step and stroke of the way.

The innovative 3D printed midsole of the UA Architech was combined with a flow-molded 3D ClutchFit auxetic upper to provide athletes with a shoe that not only gives a locked-in, supportive feel, but also flexes and moves with the foot to provide a zero distractions experience. Add in the Brand’s unparalleled Charged Cushioning underfoot for responsiveness and comfort, and a thin rubber outsole for traction and you have Under Armour’s most elite performance trainer.

UA Architech
A new color of the UA Architech will be available as a limited edition offering to consumers this August on UA.com. The shoe, which retails for $299.99, was the first 3D printed performance trainer available to consumers. The first color was available in March and sold out in under 20 minutes.

Under Armour also geared Michael up with a custom pair of the UA Speedform Slingshot Running shoes in a limited edition red, white and blue colorway that also feature Boomer’s footprint. This innovative running shoe delivers zero distractions with a seamless, zonal compression, 3D knit upper and Under Armour Charged Cushioning. The limited edition color way is available on UA.com.
