2e REI: Infernal Run 2015

Another Infernal Run event was held on 27 March 2015, organized by the 2nd Foreign Infantry Regiment (2e REI) near Nimes, its garrison. Hundreds of legionnaires from 2e REI, 1er REC, 1er RE, COMLE (Foreign Legion Command) and GRLE (Foreign Legion Recruiting Group) participated in.

Legionnaires had to run 9 km (6 miles) and overcome a variety of obstacles. A 2e REI medical officer won the race. The first ever Infernal Run event was held in June 2014. According to colonel Valéry Putz, the 2e REI commanding officer, the event’s date was changed due to several military operations conducted by the 2e REI in 2015.
