The Legend Runner, previously known as Strongman Run in South Africa, will be hosting their first Beach Series, as the Legend Runner Paarl will be hosting their race for the 4th consecutive year in South Africa. It’s one of the biggest mass start obstacle races in Africa. The Legend Runner is one of the Highlights on the race calendar due to the spectacular location in Paarl with its absolute beauty and the fact that there is something for every runner, young and old! Each year we see thousands of runners complete the race not only from South Africa but from all over the world. The Legend Runner is not just another race but an experience you will keep with you for life.

We go the extra mile to make the race memorable and unique. The Legend Runner has a tradition of runners dressing up as different characters for the event. Over the years we saw amazing and creative costumes and appreciate the creativity and team spirit of all runners! It’s an absolute honor to host the Legend Runner in South Africa, showing the world what South Africans are made of!
The Legend Runner would like to create a first and one of a kind events, on our South African beaches where we would like to promote the various tourist destinations and attract visitors to the event while also serving as a financial injection in the community. We focus on a 100 km radius of each tourist destination.

Legend Runner likes to create an event of which everyone reaps the benefits including the community, businesses, and entrepreneurs of the areas in which the event will be held. We would like to create awareness for, beach clean-ups and other organizations. The nominated organizer from each respective destination will decide which community project will receive funding from the ticket sales.
Legend runner will create part-time employment for the local persons of each tourist destination as we will use local marshals, medics and local suppliers.

The Legend Runner Beach Series focuses on holding four races in the morning and two in the afternoon in the Western Cape and KZN, and two in the morning and two in the afternoon for Port Elizabeth and East London (Eastern Cape), which would take off every 45 minutes, depending on the tides.

Instead of having just a normal run we create a FUN environment for family and friends with inflatable obstacles on the beach for young and old. We will hold a 5 km run for Kiddies from 10 years and up, and a 2,5 km loop run, and a 500m kiddies’ race. The first race would start at 07:30 as we would take the tides into consideration. Our goal for the event is to promote South Africa’s top tourism coastal destinations form Durban to Cape Agulhas, the most Southern tip of Africa using sport to bring people together.
