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!

Crooked Organization

Jun 18, 2018 by Brenda

STAY AWAY FROM THIS ORGANIZATION!! They changed the Tri State location from June 23 2018 to October 27, 2018 and from North Jersey to Eastern Long Island just on FRIDAY! ONE WEEK NOTICE!
No Offer for refunds. The venue is now 3 1/2 hours away from me and at the end of October.

There is nothing tri-state about an eastern Long Island Location.
Choose another organization for your mud run adventures.

I enjoyed the obstacles but hated all the hills. I think you should be told about the hills. That first one is a big one! Also the lack of water stations was very disappointing. There was one at the beginning and not another one till almost the end. Neither the medics or volunteers had any to hand out either. I was completely dehydrated by the end of the course

First experience with Warrior Dash. Took up a volunteer shift from 8-1:30, got let off our shift at 12:40, and I figured me and my buddy would have enough time to go back to our car for our race gear, com3 back and change, use the porta potty, and drop off our bag at bag check before racing. We got to the start line at 1:20 only to be told the last wave of racers was let through at 1pm and we weren't allowed to race. When we talked to the staff at solutions we were told they don't give out free race vouchers and we were given a support email to find a solution instead. We had reason to believe they would let out waves at least until 1:30 since out volunteer shift was scheduled to potentially last that long, but the staff failed to communicate to us that the last wave would be let out only 20 mins after we checked out and now we have to wait a whole year before the next one in Socal. It's not worth it to travel out of state for a 5k obstacle race to me. It was gonna be my buddy's first OCR as well and now I don't know if he'll be able to race it next year since he usually works on weekends. Made a 4 hour drive and wasted money for a campsite reservation the night before just to get screwed over. At least I eventually got a free race code after emailing them. Btw, the email staff gave us didn't work and I had to fetch the support email myself. My advice, go with Spartan races. They at least make sure you race at the same event if you volunteer and want to run.


Great fun

Mar 05, 2018 by Sheila

Great fun. My daughter and I did this run last year in the rain and decided to come back a second year. We had a great time and enjoyed the obstacles.


Alright

Aug 09, 2017 by Dave the Warrior

I been doing the NYC Warrior race 3 years in a row now. I found it more organized each year since. The race is still the same location. It is still a fun race with most of it covering hilly wooded terrain. Its not really an advance race and each year seems to get easier obstacle wise.

It's not really for the hardcore but made for the beginners, 'weekend' warrior and those who love to Instagram & Facebook look what I did Sat and look how muddy I got as people were rolling in the mud obstacles like pigs in a mud bath just to show that.


Keep coming back

May 31, 2017 by George

3rd year in a row at Warrior Dash Ohio, I think one year it was named Warrior Dash Ohio II, anyways its in canal fulton area, the course is good, plenty of room to pass or in my case get passed. The obstacles have some wait but not as bad at other events. One or 2 times I have seen obstacles closed do to damage or injury. All in all I love this one as I am able to grab a beer afterward unlike the 10+ milers that I am just happy to survive.


Great for Beginners, Still Fun for Competitive Athletes

May 03, 2017 by Hillary Greene

Info for Competitive Athletes:
The obstacles are not particularly technical, nor are athletes penalized for failing/required to complete the obstacle. It is very much a runner's race in this regard. That said, the terrain at Milky Way Farms was tough, starting on a steep, unforgiving incline. It is very clear that Warrior Dash targets the fun run "weekend warriors," but the competitive division is still available and offers some great prizes including: a free race entry, a voucher for Vibram shoes, and (at least in this case) an OCRWC qualifier shirt for podium finishers. In short, it's fun, but don't expect your upper body/grip strength to be challenged much.

For Non-Competitive Athletes:
If you've been toying with the idea of an OCR or mud run, this is a great entry-level course to introduce any and everyone to the sport of OCR. You can finish this course with very little training. Go have fun with your buddies and earn some really fun swag. The festival has some good activities for everyone, too.


Overall, not as good as last year

Mar 05, 2017 by Tom White

Background: I ran my first Warrior Dash in 2016, and have done a ½ Tough Mudder since, so this was my third event of this type. There was a constant drizzle on 3/4/17, so the weather was one of the obstacles.

Pros: This is normally a good event for beginners, as the short distance (5K) is a nice starting distance and the obstacles aren’t too difficult. The course itself was the toughest obstacle this year, as the rain made large parts of the path extremely muddy and slippery, so you got a great workout just moving along the course (carefully). Quite a few people went down quite a few times. Obstacles like Fisherman’s Catch and Pallet Jacked provide some good opportunities to test balance and strength.

Cons: However, there was a lot lacking that I didn’t notice last year. First, two obstacles that were advertised weren’t offered at all: Dead Man’s Drop and Mud Mounds. The loss of Mud Mounds is especially disappointing because it is arguably the only collaborative obstacle on the course (the mud is slippery and high enough that a boost up is required for most people). But these two were nowhere in sight. Next, Alcatraz and Goliath were shut down, and they were only letting people crawl under Bridge the Gap when we ran (noon). Alcatraz and Bridge the gap were presumably due to the weather. Goliath was so clean that we suspect no one ran it all day. We noticed that the landing pool for Goliath was much shorter than last year and honestly wondered if it was unfinished. But given the nature of the event, if your obstacles can’t handle a little mud and water (Alcatraz and Bridge the Gap), then they are poorly designed in the first place.

Which leads to another point: Safety and security. We saw almost no one who appeared to be at the obstacles representing Warrior Dash (either as staff or volunteers). No one directing traffic, there in case someone got hurt, etc. Likewise, bag check seemed haphazard. Two friends who had left stuff in our bag were able to go in, get their stuff out of our bag, and leave. Not only did anyone not stop them, but they saw no one there TO stop them (they were our friends so it is OK with us that they did it, but the lack of security is concerning). We also heard some complaints that medical response time was extremely slow, and one of my friends noted that it seemed to be the same person responding to the three injuries we saw.

So, Warrior Dash seems like a good beginning course to cut your teeth on. But it doesn’t seem as well run as some of the others (the friend of mine who does 50 miles of this a year vouches for that), which may lead to safety concerns. Take this for what you feel it is worth.


LOVED IT

Mar 05, 2017 by Carolyn

It was awesome!! Despite cold, wet, slippery conditions this was the most fun I've ever had at a race. I was worried about the obstacles but my training paid off and I did them all without issue. The long line at the Warrior Summit gave me doubt (a lot of people struggled) but climbing over the top was a real thrill. Alcatraz was not closed when i came through; I had no trouble crossing it but some people were surprised to learn that the water depth was 7 feet and that actual swimming would be required. You can tell the experienced runners/athletes by their use of etiquette, and many of the WD particpants are neither -- they just want to have fun. You have to accept that going in. If you're competitive, choose the competitive wave! I think the event was remarkably well organized given the location and weather, and I want to say a huge Thank You to the organizers and volunteers. I loved my swag and the fun atmosphere and the music -- had the weather cooperated, the after party would have really rocked. Overall, my first OCR experience was a ton of fun. Great job, thanks again!


Mar 05, 2017 by Alan

This is my first Warrior Dash. I've got a few other brands of OCR under my belt.

Overall it was a good event. Considering there was steady rain most of the day and the trail was sloppy and slippery, they did pretty good. They should've put in an express lane or two at the rope/slope climb. The Alcatraz obstacle was closed. I'm not sure why. It was raining and everyone was already wet.

Cons:
The lack of spectators being allowed to see all the different obstacles was a waste. My mom came to watch me for the first time and was disappointed because she really couldn't see anything.

As with most events, there's no signage advising slower people, walkers, and groups need to stay to the right of the trail, so the faster people can run by.

Pros:
Quality beer selection (i.e. not Bud/Miller/Coors). It's Central Texas so Shiner was a must have and they had it.

Fun atmosphere.

Summary:
Good mud run/obstacle race for beginners or people looking to do it for fun.
