Testing yourself against nature and the elements is a great way to find out what you’re really made of and to see if the forces of earth, wind, and fire are really as dangerous and funky as they're cracked up to be. Conquer the outdoors with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get one entry to Warrior Dash Carolinas in Huntersville on Saturday, August 27, or Sunday, August 28 (up to a $70 value).
Hordes of racers are scheduled to depart on the scenic and challenging excursion at many times throughout the day of the race; with this Groupon, you can register for 1 of up to 14 waves between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Space is limited, so you must register by 3 p.m. on Sunday, August 7. Register early to ensure your preferred wave doesn't sell out.
Covering 3.08 miles and a total of 12 different obstacles, Warrior Dash challenges would-be Achilleses to scramble across tangling ropes, trek through mounds of mud, hustle over a hulking wooden barricade, and leap over fire. Although Warrior Dash provides challenges to even the fittest of fit athletes, mental toughness often proves the greatest tool for success, and people of all physical abilities can have fun and do well as long as they bring a good attitude and their best guts. All participants should arrive at least one hour before their departure time with a photo ID, a change of clothes (what participants wear during the race inevitably gets dirty), and a signed copy of the participant waiver.
In addition to the race itself, participants receive a Warrior Dash T-shirt, a fuzzy warrior helmet, a medal to don every day after the race, free water, a post-race snack, a beer for those older than 21, and authentic Viking back rubs. Soon after the race, Warrior Dash posts participant times and photos of the event on its website. Peruse the FAQ page to learn more.
