This post is brought to you in partnership with Warrior Dash. All opinions are our own.

Mark your calendars: Warrior Dash is coming to Huntersville on Saturday 6/2!

At this get-dirty 5k obstacle course and festival, you'll embrace the elements as you tackle, climb, slip, slide, an tunnel through earth, air, fire, and water through 12 crazy obstacles--then once you're done, you'll party it up with cold beer, a live DJ, and more. Event registration starts at $65, but the price will increase in 14 days, so snag your tickets ASAP!

Read on to find out more about the course route and obstacles, what you get when you register to participate (hint: there's beer), and how you can get 20% off your event registration.

About the Course (& the Obstacles)

Warrior Dash calls itself "the obstacle course race that anyone can start and everyone can finish." Participants are encouraged to move at their own pace, whether they choose to walk, run, or do some combination of the two to make it through the 3.1 mile course.

But of course, this isn't just your average 5K mud run—there are 12 obstacles along the way. Get ready to make your way through a battle with the elements through the following obstacles before you cross the finish line: 

  1. No Man's Land - Earth 
  2. Summit Plummet - Air 
  3. Mud Mounds - Earth
  4. Warrior Summit - Air
  5. Pallet Jacked - Air
  6. Rock Slide - Air
  7. Upslide Down XL - Water
  8. Super Soaker - Water
  9. Down to Earth - Earth
  10. Warrior Roast - Fire
  11. The Filth Element - Earth
  12. Muddy Mayhem - Earth

Which Warrior Wave Will You Be Part Of?

There are three different waves of warriors you could plan to be a part of. 

Standard Wave: 11 AM - 2 PM 
When you purchase a standard event registration, this is what you'll get! Three hours of fun on the course and at the post-run festival.

Preferred Wave: 8:30 AM - 10:45 AM
For $10 more than the standard wave, you can get in early to beat the heat and tackle the course in its best condition.

Competitive Wave: 8 AM
In it to win it? For $10 more than the standard wave, you can get in first to compete for Warrior glory. The top 10 male and top 10 female runners in the competitive wave at each Warrior Dash will qualify for both the OCR World Championships race in London 10/19 - 10/21, and the NorAm OCR Championships race in Stratton, VT 8/10 - 8/12. (Details and fine print here.)

What You Get When You Register

You didn't think your registration was just for the 5K obstacle course race itself, did you? No way. As a Warrior, you'll get a participant shirt, fuzzy warrior helmet, finisher medal, complimentary beer (!!!), race day photos, and all day festival access.
