1 / What is the Legacy Run?
The legacy run is an adventure that will benefit the runner, the communities we visit, and the campus of KBCMI. A team of 10 or more runners will begin with their feet in the Atlantic Ocean in Bluefields Nicaragua. We will run, one person at a time, across the country of Nicaragua and end with our feet (bodies) in the Pacific Ocean at Poneloya Beach. We will only run in the early half of the day. Each day we will cover about 70 miles. With 10 runners that would be about 7 miles per day that each runner would get to run. Each night we will have a small worship service and serve in each town we visit. We will conclude with a large celebration on the beach with KBCMI students, staff, and community members.
2 / HOW FAST DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO RUN?
This is a run not a race. You can walk if you like. The only expectation is that you complete the miles for your leg. This will be between 30-42 miles for the 5 days of the run. You can always choose to run more, but you are expected to complete the minimum.
3 / HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Plane tickets plus $950 for ground cost. Plane tickets will be approximately $1,000. This will cover ALL expenses and logistics for you on the ground.
All Ground Transportation
3 Meals a Day Plus Snacks
A Really Good Time
