What You'll Get
For $30, today's deal gets you one entry to Warrior Dash Louisiana plus lots of warrior-worthy loot (a $60 value). Hoards of racers are scheduled to depart on the 3.18-mile scenic and challenging excursion at many times throughout the day of the race; with this Groupon, you can register for the 2:30 p.m., 3 p.m., 3:30 p.m., and 4 p.m. waves on Saturday, March 5, 2011. Space is limited, so you must register by Thursday, February 17 to secure your preferred spot or the Groupon is forfeited; register early to ensure your preferred wave doesn't sell out.
This tricky trot near the shores of Lake Pontchartrain launches from the Bonnet Carré Spillway off of Airline Highway, about 25 miles west of downtown New Orleans. Over the course of 3.18 miles, racers will weave their way through diverse terrain, including gooey mud puddles and 13 total obstacles. Though the 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 times 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 number of extras, including a chip (to record your time) to don during the race, a Warrior Dash T-shirt, a fuzzy warrior helmet and medal to don every day after the race, free water, a postrace snack, and one beer ticket (for racers 21+) to cash in upon completion. Make sure to bring extra cash if you'd like to purchase additional beer, as outside alcohol is not allowed. 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.
