You know his full name. You know which armies and Legions he commanded. You know the fate of his son and wife. He was a General who became a slave, a slave who became a Gladiator, a Gladiator who defied an empire. His name… Maximus.
Few stories can make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up like his. From the battles in Germania to his domination of the Coliseum, Maximus’ story is one of betrayal, revenge and glory.
We believe Gladiator is one of the greatest films of all time, so why not use it as your inspiration to get out and run in order to earn yourself this iconic Maximus medal? But a medal of this significance cannot be earned easily – you will need to run a distance that challenges you and makes you reach deep within yourself. So do it for your family, do it for revenge, do it for the glory of Rome, but most of all, do it for you. (top tip: listening to the Gladiator soundtrack as you run will really help).
And remember, what we do in life, echoes in eternity…
