Warrior Dash 2011

Todd & I signed up for the Warrior Dash at the beginning of the year. I had heard of it before but now that the race is in Ohio for the first time, I swear, everyone I know is doing it! The Warrior Dash will be held in Logan, Ohio on June 4-5 and we'll be toeing the line on Saturday, June 4 at 9:00 AM. Heats of the race go off every so often throughout the day and we're the first heat on Saturday. The race is 2.91 miles long and consists of 14 challenges:

Wicked Windstorm--run through gale force winds

Knee High Hell--speed step through hundreds of tires

Junkyard Jam--stampede through a scrap yard

Deadweight Drifter--trudge through waist deep water & over logs

Tunnels of Terror--crawl through dark black tunnels

Hell's Hill--sprint to the summit

Walk the Plank--traverse the gully on wooden planks

Warrior Wall--climb over a wooden wall

Hay Fever--hustle up & over giant bales of hay

Rio Run--dash down the river

Cliffhanger--rappel down the steep ravine

Cargo Climb--maneuver over the cargo nets

Warrior Roast--leap over fire

Muddy Mayhem--crawl under barbed wire

I'd be lying if I didn't say I was a little nervous! I obviously know I can run 2.91 miles but some of these challenges look, well, a little challenging! Luckily, we're just doing the race for fun so we don't need to stress over performing well.

Here's a few pictures I found on google from previous Warrior Dash races.

We were in the same heat, but I had to move my plans to the one in Michigan because of a wedding. Good luck! I hope you'll write a recap.
