Warrior Dash 2010 – My first obstacle race!

The weekend of May 21st – 24th was a fun weekend all around!  About a month prior my brother sent me news of this race he was interested in called the Warrior Dash which was an obstacle coarse type race we both agreed to run it.
Since it was a long way away I decided to take Friday and Monday off and just make a long Atlanta weekend of it.  My family and I headed out Friday morning, we were in sort of a hurry since we had to be at the Georgia Aquarium just after lunch (it’s an impressive aquarium if you have never been).
We took most of the day Saturday to visit the outlets.
Sunday was race day.
Monday we hit the World of Coke tour before heading home.

On race day my brother and I were in the 3:30 wave. We got on the road around lunch time since it was about 2 hrs from Atlanta. We had just enough time to get to the camp ground and get our packets and such before the race started.
The obstacles consisted of a wall jump image , field of tires image , mud pit image , junk yard of cars image , logs in water image , tunnels image , wall climb image , cargo net climb image , run through a forest image , and floating platforms! image

 

Here are a few pictures from the event!

    Wow! You got some major hang time over that fire! I guess the fear of being burned was incentive or something! Oh, and you look just a little too happy in that mud pit!So the XTERRA race this weekend should be nothing for a WARRIOR such as yourself! Maybe you should cover yourself in mud before you get out there so that you feel more at home! Ooh, and if you get your helmet, you HAVE to wear it to the race!
