$42 for Entry to an Obstacle-Course Race (Up to $105 Value)

Entrants to the Chicago BADASS Dash sign up to take on a 7K course rife with physical challenges, from climbing cargo nets to navigating obstacles suspended above waist-deep water. Groupon purchasers can register with either the race's recreational or elite division. The recreational division is a chip-timed personal challenge in which participants are free to conquer the course at their own pace without competition. The elite division—ideal for athletes, first responders, or military members—is intended for serious competitors to obtain the fastest time. After completing the jaunt, racers receive a finisher award and refreshments, plus access to the post-race festival composed of an awards ceremony, live entertainment, and a beer garden. The race takes place on Saturday, August 31. Upon purchasing this Groupon, you must visit the registration page to secure your spot by August 26. While registering at the BADASS Dash website you wil be prompted to select a race division and wave start time. A confirmation will be sent to racers upon successful registration; please print a copy of this confirmation for entry to the race. See the FAQ page for more information.

Please note that as of August 6, 2013, the location of this event has changed from Kiwanis Park in Brookfield, Illinois, to Chicago Bandits Stadium in Rosemont, Illinois.


BADASS Dash’s organizers live in a world of imagination. Where others see cargo nets, they see giant webs to be scaled. School buses become climbing walls and bales of hay turn into tunnels filled with grass and mud. In city after city, they place 30+ of these obstacles along a 7-kilometer course, and invite individuals and teams to compete against each other in elite matches, or beat their personal best in recreational races. Afterward, the organizers throw a celebratory bash filled with bonfires, food, and prizes for top finishers.
