Few runs end in beer steins, medieval-sized turkey legs, and a party with live music (if they did, we’d have quads like Usain Bolt… so strong, so graceful), but one definitely does: Warrior Dash, coming to SoCal on April 5th.
This isn’t just a gentle jog -- the Dash is a 3.1-mile obstacle course of mud-crawling, wall-climbing, and fire-jumping that’s as challenging as it is rewarding at the finish line. Greeting those gutting out the 12 obstacles? A party with the aforementioned comically large bird legs, brews, and beats courtesy of a DJ and live bands.
Bonus awesome: Enter and defeat this upcoming race as one of the top 25 finishers and you’re eligible to compete in the Warrior Dash World Championship in Esparto, California on October 18th, 2014. The winner of that race is taking home way more than leftover turkey -- namely, delicious, delicious money (over $100,000 in total cash prizes).
