Legends are made through SWEAT, Tears & TRIUMPH
Legend Race returns for its fourth year. With over 9 races in the past 3 years we are gearing up for 2017.
Get ready for our most challenging 3+ miles course yet, filled with awesome obstacles. We are increasing the number and size of the obstacles you will see on the course. In addition to the familiar obstacles, we’ll have some exciting new ones to keep you on your toes.
Gone are the days of mud puddles and simple log carries that are considered an obstacle those will just be par for the course. Get your grip strength ready you will need it.
For those of you that dare to challenge yourself in our elite wave you will have to bring it. This will be a mandatory completion for all obstacles. We will have 2 waves that are competitive our 930 and 9:45 am If you cannot complete any obstacle you will forfeit your band. All our other waves 10 am on will be open for everyone there will be no timing for those waves and there is no mandatory completion but you have to at least attempt the obstacle.

About Amy Bortoff
Athletic, energetic, outgoing (sometimes loud), organized, fun, confident,
compassionate, creative, competitive, well traveled, adventurous and all around kind of
I have always been athletic, but only started competing in OCR’s (Legend Racing,
Spartan Races, BattleFrogs, Ninjas, Rugged Manics, USMC team racing, etc) as well
as earning my Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do after age 40. I started running ELITE this
year (pushed reluctantly by my fellow OCR friends) surprisingly, earning FIRST PLACE
on the podium for Women’s Masters at the 2015 Charlotte Spartan Sprint and being in
the top 5 for all races in my age group for 2014 and so far in 2015!
I live a very active life in Raleigh, NC with my husband and 5 children (ages 14 to 21!).
I was a flight attendant for United Airlines for 14 years. I now work for the Ezulwini
Game Lodges in South Africa doing all of their non-profit US marketing. I get the
privilege to travel twice a year to South Africa. When I am home I enjoy traveling to
races as often as possible with my family and my ‘Legends T.W.O.’ running group.
My motto: JUST DON’T BE LAST!

About Aimee Flint
My name is Aimee Flint and I am a Wilmington NC native. I found my love and passion for fitness in late 2012 after signing up to Gold’s Gym and taking what later became a life changing group fitness class, Power Pilates. I started in the back of the room, but quickly found myself on the front row daily, challenging and pushing myself in ways I had never before. This soon lead to a new journey of obstacle course racing and the realization that “Flint is an endurance, adrenaline & o.c.r. junkie”. I am a competitive athlete who likes to be motivated beyond my own strengths and I hope I can strive for others to do the same. Certified instructor for Power Pilates in September 2013, certified instructor for TRX in September 2014 and newly Booty Barre qualified since January 2015.
My OCR experience consists of: Dirty Girl Mud Run, Ninja Challenge (NC), Spartan, Tough Mudder, Rugged Maniac, Warrior Dash, Combat Mud Run (NC), Survival Sprint (NC), Battlefrog, Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge on NBC ” member of the Bounce Squad

About Sam Papanikas
Sam Papanikas, (born July 1974), is a chef, athlete, father & husband. He is the head chef and partner of Bleu Olive in Durham, NC. He was born in South Jersey and moved to Clearwater, Florida in 1984 where he played many sports including high school football, baseball & amateur beach volleyball. In his senior year of high school he quit his varsity football team due to lack of support for his athletic endeavors so he can help with the family business. After many years of partying & mischief, he started his own family and continued to excel in his career in the restaurant industry. At age 40 he started running and ran his first OCR race, Ninja Challenge, in 2014. He had been working out for a couple of years prior with no goals but that particular race changed everything about his training and re-ignited an athletic fire he thought he had lost many years ago. Now he is striving to compete for podiums, primarily but not limited to masters, in various OCR events as well as other races including swimming, trail races & road races

About Ryan Bowyer
My name is Ryan Bowyer and I am a 27 year old semi-competitive runner really looking to take the next step. I ran cross country in college at Emory & Henry College in Emory, VA after running cross country and track, playing baseball and basketball in high school. I ran competitively all through undergrad and then got to grad school and immediately gave it up. Between the course work, my assistantship, and meeting my now-wife, there were simply other priorities that took precedent. I entered the professional world in 2012 and regained that love of running.
Since then, I have won a number of local races, won my age group in some larger 5Ks, and qualified for the 2014 Warrior Dash World Championship and, by default, the Independently Run OCR World Championship. I didn’t get to run in either, and won’t have the opportunity this fall either, but I’m looking to in 2016.
I can’t wait to begin competing with the #LegendRaceTeam and representing #LegendRace
