Organizer:Warrior Dash Warrior Dash is the world's largest running series and is held on challenging and rugged terrains across the world. Participants bound over fire, trudge through mud and scale over 12 obstacles during this fierce 5K. From couch potatoes to novice runners to extreme athletes, Warrior Dash truly is an event for all athletic abilities. The inspiration behind Warrior Dash was to create the most bad-ass day possible. It is a day where participants can challenge themselves, be active and get muddy. Participants tackle the course and then celebrate their accomplishments with beer, food and live music. Warrior Dash is an alternative to the classic 5K and provides an incomparable experience for participants and spectators. The unique combination of athleticism, live music, turkey legs and beer keeps Warriors coming back for more. Warrior Dash is partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The St. Jude Warriors program encourages Warrior Dash racers to fundraise for St. Jude. With the help of 2012 participants Warrior Dash has raised over 2 million dollars for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Red Frog Events prides itself on creating the Active Entertainment Industry, which is a combination of fitness, entertainment and event management. As a leader in the industry, we strive to make each Warrior Dash more unique and challenging than the last. Innovation is continuously brewing back at Red Frog Events office where the whole team is dreaming up new obstacles and twists for Warrior Dash. In the end, we are in the business of having fun!

We know our Warriors love having fellow Warriors with them on race day, but also other comrades to watch them on the battleground and cheer after. Spectators are welcome to join the festival, probably get a big mud hug and watch the course and some obstacles in the spectator viewing area all at no cost. The more the merrier to rock on during a full day of bad-assery.
Parking will be available for $10 per car space on race day. Please have cash ready. Car-pooling is highly encouraged.
Party like a warrior!
Beer, bands, food and fun will begin approximately 30 minutes after the first wave.
* Beer tent and food tent operation hours are subject to change due to weather, state, and local restrictions.
Additional beer, clothing, merchandise, and food items (think turkey legs, corn on the cob, etc.) will be available for purchase on race day. Vegetarian food options will be available, however gluten free food and beverages are not guaranteed.
Remember, no outside food or drinks will be allowed. Security will be enforcing the area.
We recommend that you arrive at least one hour before your wave time. Remember that you will have to park, pick up your packet, attach your bib and chip and make your way to the starting line.
Gear check will be available for racers to check their items during the race (like a coat check). Feel free to leave your keys, t-shirt, helmet, and all those items you don't want to carry with you during the race.
There's no team division, but you're welcome to Dash with some friends to help you through the obstacles.
