Adrenaline junkies… get ready for the wildest, most fun race this side of insanity. BADASS Dash is the ultimate adventure and obstacle course challenge. The race series was created by three of the most unique individuals in the live event business, with a combined resume of over 75 years, specializing in sporting events and live action.

Each race consists of a 5-7 k course that will boast unconventional, but achievable obstacles that are truly BADASS. And although each race will have a minimum of 15-20 obstacles, not every race will have the same obstacles and you won’t know every obstacle that is on the course as the element of surprise is BADASS itself.

Whether you’ve raced a 5k, 10k, Mud Run, Trail Race, Adventure Race, Triathlon or any “Athlon” for that matter, the BADASS Dash will be unlike any race you’ve entered before. Whether you enter as an individual or come as a team, our goals for you remain the same:

  • To create the personal challenge of a lifetime…
  • To push you to your limit to see if you can conquer the extreme elements…
  • To make you overcome some of your wildest fears…
  • To raise awareness for our Charity Partner Autism Speaks
  • To earn the right to a self-proclaimed title of being a true BADASS!

A BADASS Dash Festival follows each race consisting of live entertainment, an expo area, food & beverages, prize giveaways, and an awards ceremony.

Badass Dash Kitchener 2016

Sep 25, 2016 by Tina Grevenstein

So disappointed ! This was my 3rd time running the Badass Dash the obstacles were crapy! They said they added more but all they added were more rope hurdles and the run across the pond on the floating squares was broken so you had to wait in line to run across one side or swim. No change rooms, no beer garden, no post race festivities and almost no vendors! They also needed more water stations it would have been bad if it were a hot day. When I asked a volunteer where the next water station was they didn't know! Sorry to say but they have really cheaped out. I probably won't run Badass again

Poor Quality Run

Aug 23, 2016 by Crystal

This was my first race and I was so excited, but it was just an over priced, poor quality race. The obstacles were simple and you're just nickel and dimed. Do not recommend.

Poorly organized

Sep 25, 2015 by Cody

I have done a few different obstacle courses and this was by far the poorest. $20 for parking, a bit steep but ok. They did not include a shirt, which every race I've been to has. The headband that was supposed to be included was not there. A few of the obstacles had fallen apart but there was nobody around to even notice. We had finished the race in the early afternoon, and already they had started taking everything down. I've never seen a run pack up so early. There was poor choices for food, no showers. The medal you receive is super cheap! This was my girlfriend first race and I'm sad that she couldn't have had the experience I've had at spartan or mud hero. I will not be returning, nor will I be recommending this.

This event has decided to cut costs on every level at the cost of a quality event. We were promised head bands ...there's no head bands, crap facilities, no porta change tent..uncovered bag check..long lineups not just to register but to start...unattended obstacles..broken obstacles...lack of food shirt ...THE WATER AT THE WATER STATIONS HAD THE WATER IN GARBAGE BAGS INSIDE GARBAGE CANS..THEY HAD TO SCOOP IT OUT BY HAND WITH PITCHERS..I MEAN SERIOUSLY?

Not worth the $ anymore

Highly disappointed this year. No shirt, no bib even. A crappy towel, shoe bag and cheap medal. $20 to park on site as well. Some of the volunteers were as helpful as pylons. I have done this race 4 years now and this will be my last. I can find other races that cost less and do a way better job. It's a shame how cheap this race has become.

no free shirt...

very disappointed this year no shirt only a very small towel and crappie bag

I wish I could give it no stars since it doesn't deserve any. If you're a partner or sponsor of this event consider ending your partnership/sponsorship with this company. If you complain on their Facebook you will be banned. the race was postponed 10 days before the race due to a "conflict" with the venue. Do us a favor Badass Dash. Give us a refund and never come back to NJ

Stole Registrant Money

Sep 09, 2014 by Jon

Organization postponed the race 10 days prior to 6/21 then sent and email on 7/13 that they were "finalizing a reschedule date and venue". Since then they have gone silent. Won't refund fees, won;t return emails, are banning people from commenting on their FB pages/posts. NOTHING. This is a thieving practice to take money and give the participants nothing in return.

I will never sign up for another race with this organization again.

NJ put on a nice race in 2013. In 2014 cancelled a week before the event, over a month later, no responses and no refunds. Total rip-off.

The organisation of the race is really not well organized, they don't have any special obstacle, it's all like others obstacle race and the staff was very arrogant. Really disappointed
