250 or 500 kilometers through the hills of the Belgian Ardennes, the mystic land of fairy tales and numerous legends, but don’t be mistaken, it will take all your physical and mental strength to finish this race.
The Legends Trail 250 (LT250) is a non-stop race of more than 250 kilometers/155 miles with 7000D+ during winter time through the Ardennes, in the hilly south of Belgium. The race will start on the 21st of February 2020 at 6.00pm. Participants have 60 hours to complete the course, which, depending on the conditions, is covered by snow and ice, or fully wet and muddy underfoot, whilst being concentrated on the difficult navigation and only having 4 checkpoints and being fully self-sufficient in between. In 2020, LT250 will celebrate its 5th edition.
New in 2020, and one time only to celebrate the fifth edition of the Legends Trail, is The Legends Trail 500 (LT500), double the distance of LT250, around 14000D+, where participants will have 7 days to complete, while having a checkpoint approximately every 70kms. The race will start on the 22nd of February 2020 at 8.00am.
