Native to the dense forests of Bastogne, War-Race is a unique obstacle race whose mission is to become the ultimate sporting and cultural event that takes you out of your comfort zone and commemorates the battles of World War I and World War II to across the world.
Their mission is also to make a donation of part of our income, to be the symbol of peace and to strive to minimize our ecological impact. RACE TO THE HONOR!
The concept is to organize a race in the same place and at the same time as a battle of the First and Second World War, in order to commemorate and honor in an innovative way.
The motto is “RACE TO HONOR” and there will be several editions around the world. This first edition is also very special because it marks the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Ardennes. Subsequently, several additional editions of War Race will be held in different countries.
The obstacles along the way will push you not only physically, but also mentally and culturally.
The first edition of the War Race will be held in Bastogne on 5 January 2020. 4 races are planned for all audiences over the age of 18: “Discovery – 5km”, “Infantry – 10km”, “Cavalery – 15km” and “Artillery – 20km”.
