Warrior Dash is the obstacle course race that anyone can start and everyone can finish. With over three million participants worldwide since 2009, we’ve reinvented the concept of a 5k run and created a revolution: Warrior Nation. Whether you’re an elite athlete or just beginning the challenge, you’ll conquer 12 world-class obstacles like Goliath and Fisherman’s Catch, wade across wooded lakes, and venture through mud-caked backroads as you make your loop to the finish line. You’ll be rewarded with a finisher medal, a sweet t-shirt, fuzzy Warrior helmet, and ice cold beer. Head to the post-race party to relive the course with friends, dance to music, and celebrate your decision to leave your normal weekend in the mud.

Courses - participation cost:

Standard Wave - &65 - Let the other Warriors wake up early! We'll keep the beer cold for you.

Preferred Wave - $75 - Run at the peak time of day while the course is in its best condition. $10 more than a standard wave.

Competitive Wave - $75 - Run with some of our strongest Warriors who want to seriously conquer the Battleground. We suggest an average 5K time of 20 minutes or less for runners choosing this wave. $10 more than a standard wave.
