Barracks to Barracks 2011

For the 3rd consecutive year, The Lebanese Army Commandos (Maghaweer)Regiment organized on the 24th of July the Barracks to Barracks race. It consisted of a 36km team mountain trail race over mountain terrain. The race started from the AlSoukhour barracks in Laklouk and ended at the Youssef Rahm barracks in the Cedars.

Of course our tireless photographer Joseph Bejjany didn’t miss the oportunity to cover the whole event and delivers us stunning photos of the military vehicle present at this race with some shot of vehicles making their first public appearence.
