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!

12 Obstacles on this course
Warrior Dash is a 5k obstacle race that anyone can conquer. Whether you’re an elite athlete or just beginning the challenge, you’ll take down 12 world-class obstacles like Goliath and Great Warrior Wall, leap over fire, and venture through mud-caked backroads as you make your loop to the finish line.
You're expected to complete all obstacles. If you're unable to complete an obstacle you may bypass the obstacle and receive your finisher medal, although you'll be disqualified from all awards.
You may have to swim while on the course, but if you aren't able, you can go around any water obstacles or hop on another Warrior's back. There will be lifeguards on site.
A obstacle list you may encounter on the course may include:
- Bridge the Gap
- Risky Business
- Warrior Summit
- Magic Carpet Ride
- Pallet Jacked
- Warrior Roast
- Fisherman’s Catch
- Muddy Mayhem
- Under the Wire
- Deadman’s Drop
- Mud Mounds
- Upside Down
- .. and more!
During the race, there will be two water stations throughout the race course.
Water and bananas will be available after you cross the finish line.
Each race has a competitive wave/s at the start of the day. The top 10 males and top 10 females from each race’s competitive wave/s will be eligible to compete in the OCR World Championships, and the North American OCR Championships. Please choose this wave during the registration process if you would like to run competitively. Please note that the competitive wave will not be officially timed, but the top 10 male and top 10 female runners will be placed by race officials.
Free! 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.
Free! Warrior Dash parking is free to spectators and already included in your registration for participants.
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.
Warrior Dash is a self-timed event. There will be clocks at the start and finish lines, as well as clocks at each mile marker. We also encourage racers to bring a waterproof watch.
Warrior Dash is only open to participants 14 years old and older.
For participants under 18 years old on race day, your parent or guardian must be present during on race day at packet pick-up to sign a waiver and release for you.
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.
We support the charity of St. Jude's Children's Hospital with more than $13 million raised to date.
Warrior Dash in partnership with USAgain is presenting participants a unique opportunity to recycle surplus shoes at 2013 races. Participants are encouraged to bring unwanted shoes from home, as well as recycling their muddy race shoes at the USAgain tent near the finish line. Shoes will be diverted from entering into landfills and given a second life by people around the world, making this unique recycling opportunity a win-win for our planet. USAgain will also make a charitable donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on behalf of Warrior Dash.
There's no team division, but you're welcome to Dash with some friends to help you through the obstacles.
