Warrior Dash is returning to the Chicago-area on Saturday, August 12 (Dollinger Family Farm in Channahon).
The 5k obstacle course race features 12 unique obstacles and has had more than 3 million competitors since 2009.
Along with the race, competitors and spectators can enjoy our Warrior Hangout which features a live DJ, lawn games and a full lineup of contests like tug-o-war, tire flipping, dancing, best beard, costume, and more.
Competitors will compete in obstacles such as: Magic Carpet Ride: Competitors can “walk on water” as they cross the wobbling, slippery mat to get to the other side. Core strength, balance, and speed are the three wishes of choice to fly on the Magic Carpet Ride.
Pallet Jacked: The water will cushion competitors falls as they traverse across swaying decks hovering above the water. Make it across, and competitors will be one step closer to the finish line.
Bridge the Gap: To reach each plank and summit the top of the pyramid, competitors will need to stretch as tall as they can. Calf muscles and hamstrings are the key to successfully Bridging the Gap.
In addition to the competition, participants have raised more than $14.5 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s Proton Therapy Center.
