    Not familiar with the Warrior Dash personally but when I have done the Living History Farms runs (also off-road), we brought disposable cameras and took pictures and stuff along the way. We aren't too worried about finishing fast. It makes it fun and the pictures are always fun to look back on

    It's simple. It's only 3-4 miles with several stations inbetween. You don't need pointers or tricks. Unless your 400 lbs it will be a piece of cake.

    Exactly.

    It's nothing short of a joke.

    Re: Warrior Dash - July 14th

    Just did this June 10th near Omaha and its not a big deal at all, there were people walking within 10 seconds of the start, no exaggeration. None of the obstacles are too tough, and you get a mini break at each one because lines back up waiting for each person to get through the obstacles. It's really not too tough, fwiw I'm early 30's carrying around an extra 15-20lbs and the only "training" I did was walking my dog and I only walked/rested while waiting for the obstacles.
