Warrior Dash

Warrior Dash is headed my way in September which means I have about 3 months to get ready.

Has anyone else been to a warrior dash?
I am wondering what to expect and if anyone has any tips,tricks, or advice for a newb, it would be more than welcome

Thank you!!

I did. Find some old shoes you can throw away. Other than that...just some basic tips. If you're going for time, start running to make sure you can run the 3 + miles. Make sure you can climb things. Also, the earlier you go, the less muddy / slippery the obstacles will be.

A friend of mine did it last year. He and his team of lunatics ran in loincloths and capes, like the Spartans in "300". The pictures are great and he got a nice medal but he got on his wife's nerves the week before the race by repeatedly kicking the dining room chairs over and shouting, "This is SPARTA!" with a Scottish accent.

And, based on the pictures, I agree with Ghostly. Don't where anything you'd mind throwing away.

Love this! Thanks guys

I am not in it for time, slow and steady wins the race for this girl and I have enough upper and lower body strength to climb the obstacles.
I just want to be able to cross the finish line!

I will note to wear throw away cloths and go early.... and I will not wear a loin cloth, I promise!! But I may let out a few Spartan war cries...

Too funny! Thank you again
