What You'll Get
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 $32, you get entry to Warrior Dash East Texas in South Conroe on Sunday, March 20 (a $65 value). Hoards 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 the 4 p.m., 4:30 p.m., 5 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. waves. Space is limited, so you must register by Thursday, March 3, to secure your preferred spot. Register early to ensure that your preferred wave doesn't sell out.
Covering 3.18 miles and a total of 14 different obstacles, Warrior Dash challenges aspiring Achilles to scramble beneath barbed wire, trek through mounds of sand, hustle over giant straw bales, and leap over fire. Though Warrior Dash provides challenges to even the fittest of fit athletes, mental toughness is 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 (whatever you wear during the race will get filthy), 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, and a post-race snack of bananas, granola bars, and authentic Viking backrubs. Soon after the race, participant times and photos of the event will be posted on Warrior Dash's website. Peruse the FAQ page to learn more.
Participants must be 18 years or older or be accompanied by an adult at check-in. Children younger than 14 cannot compete.
More than 210,000 Facebookers are fans of Warrior Dash.
