Warrior Dash is the 5k obstacle course race and festival enjoyed by over three million Warriors worldwide. Since 2009, this is the get-dirty race anyone can start and everyone can finish. And once you’re done, get ready to party at a festival with a live DJ, great beer, activities and sponsors and the best people watching ever.

It’s BYOB—Bring Your Own Beard. Or giant turtle costume. Or matching tutus. You bring the weird, and we love you for it. Warrior Nation is the diverse crew of athletes and couch potatoes, families and weekend warriors, run-for-a-cause-ers and veteran racers all united by the Warrior Creed and the love of a good time. 

This year’s Dash embraces the elements. Tackle, climb, slip, slide, tunnel and generally deal with Earth, Air, Fire and Water through 12 crazy awesome obstacles.
