Warrior Dash Race Heads To Mt. Morris [Video]
So you've probably heard about the Warrior Dash by now, which is a three mile obstacle course taking place in Mt. Morris at the end of the month. Originally it was only supposed to be held on Saturday, but since it was so popular they added an extra day on Sunday. A recent press release says they expect 25,000 participants to compete with wave times every half hour, starting at 9am.
If you've signed up, expect to jump through fire, crawl through mud pits, climb over vehicles and do other grueling obstacles. I've signed up with a couple of friends and it looks like it's going to be a really good time. I need to start training for it, so maybe I'll start practicing jumping over fire.
Even if you aren't participating you can always come out and watch the event because there's going to be live music, beer and food afterward. Another cool thing about Warrior Dash is the fact that they've partnered with GreenSneakers, an organization who likes to make a local and global impact. With the help of both groups, donated tennis shoes are given a second chance, keeping them out of local landfills. With the help of Real Warriors with Real Heart, GreenSneakers expects up to 300,000 pounds of donations, which is roughly 176,000 pairs.
Plan to come out to the E.A. Cummings Center on July 30 and 31 to either participate or hang out during the Warrior Dash. You can watch the video below so you'll have a better idea of what to expect on race day.
