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.

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.


PA Warrior Dash 2016

Dec 30, 2016 by Bob D.

I'd only done one mud run before, but I have to say this was an awesome experience. First, parking was fast and efficient. Check in was smooth, with only a short wait. The race and obstacles were challenging enough, well spread out, and a minimum, or no, back up. The only, minor, disappointment was the showering set up. But hey, a good time for chatting with folks. Same for the food/beer lines, a bit of a wait, but not insurmountable. Looking forward to next year!


“A mediocre adventure of waiting…”

Dec 27, 2016 by Brandon Wall

Parking- A:
Pretty much the venue parking is in a dirt field. The volunteers did good at directing the flow.

Festival- B:
The festival ground is standard for these mud events. There are various tents for food, medical, and a warmup area with monkey bars. There is a large stage that random bands played at or a rock mix blasted over the large speakers. The swag sold is ok priced but not very creative in design. Nothing really enticed me that I really wanted. The only spectator viewable obstacle that can been seen from the festival grounds is the final mud crawl. The biggest problem I had was the line for the race bibs. I was an hour and a half early to the venue and waited 2 hours to get my bib (t shirt and Viking hat given here as well)! I got sun burnt just waiting in line and missed my heat time. The beer tent was Coors Light, no thanks.

Bag Check – n/a :
No idea, didn’t use it. From what I saw though the line was stupidly long.

Starting line- B:
The hype man was good and very motivating for the runners. Each speech was different than the last and sounded special
Course Layout – D:
The course was very bland. It was very little on the haggard trail or mud aspect. The trail was lead mainly through open grass fields and most the trail path was not technical at all. Really the woods trail was a normally designed nicely kept forest walking trail. The obstacles where very tightly spaced between each other; usually ¼ mile or sometimes less of distance. The semi plus side is that since your will be mainly running through an open field, its relatively easy to run around people who have stopped.
Obstacles - F:
Every obstacle had a wait time of at least 10-15minutes. There are so many people that either stalled in the middle of effort either from fatigue or stopping to pose for a picture from their friends. The difficulty also isn’t really anything special for veteran racers; mainly climb a simple wall or wall with rope and go down the other side. There is also only 1 mud obstacles and its at the finish line. So no complex mud or water tranches and no crawling under barbwire (Except the final mud crawl, the rest of the race you crawl under a mesh netting).
Water Stations- D:
3 water station on the route that are always a waiting line as well.
Finish Line- F:
The longest wait of them all. I waited at least 25 minutes just to start the final crawl. The mud area is not wide enough to support the slow bottleneck of racers. Its also an area where everyone including the venue officials are taking photos. So yet again people are stopping to pose. When finishing, the officials are also unhelpful aside from giving you a medal. I could not see because a racer kicked mud in my eyes and I had no way to get it out since I’m covered in thick taffy style mud. The officials couldn’t offer anything to help (no shirt, paper towel, nothing?? Really? I’m blind!!) A random woman finally helped me (not a race official) after seeing me run into a fence…
Shower/Changing:
The way they see fit to spray down racers is to have a tanker truck and have someone randomly spray 2-3 people at a time. So after about 10 minutes of spraying, the truck driver has to leave the venue, refill water at another location, and come back around 10 minutes later! Wish this was a joke. Stood in line for about an hour to get a little less muddy.

Conclusion:
This race is made for people who are not very athletic and are looking for something a little different as a group for a physical adventure. The obstacles are not too hard and the travel distance is around the effort of a couch to 5k goal to set. The whole vibe of the venue and even the racers is that of an outdoor party rather than a competition. I had a racer yell at me, “no point in running, your not going to win!”, which really sums up a lot. In reference, I did 2 Spartan Races (Beast and Sprint) and was disappointed when attempting this race. In reverse perspective, Warrior Dash in terms of competition thrill, it is a stepping stone for harder races. Regardless of who the race is to appeal to, the major issues with staff and venue design is ridiculous. I have never seen such sloppy event decisions like what WD decided on.

Event Name: 5km foam fest 

Our family participated in the 5km Foam Fest in Red Deer for the first time last year and had so much fun together. Big smiles and so much laughter. Would highly recommend this well organized event as a family activity to do together!


So Much Fun

Aug 24, 2016 by Amy Vansen

My husband and I had so much fun. It is well organized and the obstacles were about the right level. I had trained by swimming laps, running up sledding hills repeatedly, and working on the number of pull ups I could do. I think my training was very helpful. There were people that passed me and there were people that I passed up. Looking forward to doing another one!


Warrior Dash Carolina 2016

Jun 09, 2016 by Jim Young

I gave 4 stars because I did have a great time. The swag was pretty awesome. That said the obstacles need help. The mud mounds had no mud. The first 1 1/2 mile had nothing that I'd call an obstacle. The fishermans catch (ring grab) might have been difficult for anyone under 4 ft tall but the rest of us you'd bang you head on the rings as you went through while walking on the net. They need more obstacles. The mud at the end was great with a perfect viscosity which made for great after pics. I would do this again even if they don't improve the obstacles. It's for a good cause and the venue is great the staff were very helpful and friendly. again the swag is great bring the whole family..


Great Race!

Jun 06, 2016 by Alexandra Hammouri

I had a great time at this race. I ran in the competitive wave and enjoyed the whole experience. The obstacles are doable by almost everyone, so it just comes down to being the fastest. I wish that it was chip timed, but it's not, so the start was crowded and you have to fight for your spot. The only other thing I didn't like was that women and men take off together, it would have been nice if they had let the men take off and then the women maybe 10-15 minutes later so we weren't having to fight for a spot with the guys.


Great for beginners

Apr 15, 2016 by James Wilson

The race was fun and the obstacles were appropriate for beginners and journeymen alike. Not good if you are looking for something competitive as runners are clumped up and there's no timing chip. However, great if you want to do something fun and healthy with your friends.


A great OCR, especially for new-comers

Apr 13, 2016 by Chip T.

The Warrior Dash in Pulaski, TN was my first real OCR/mud run, and after that, I was hooked! Since that first one, I have already completed three additional OCRs, and I am registered for my first Tough Mudder next month. And I am looking at completing the Spartan Trifecta in 2016 as well.

All that being said, I have the Warrior Dash to thank for all my OCR obsessions now. Although it isn't the most difficult OCR out there, Warrior Dash is really big fun! It can be challenging and entertaining for new-comers, as well as seasoned veterans. My wife and I are doing the Warrior Dash in Georgia this weekend. It will be her first WD, but I know it won't be her last!

Plus the medal that you get upon completion of the WD is awesome!

I highly recommend checking out a Warrior Dash near you!
