Event #28 - Warrior Dash

The Warrior Dash was unlike any race we have run before. The course was marked as "3.15ish hellish miles" and that's exactly what it was. The race took place in Manchester, TN with almost 11,000 runners, some in hilarious costumes.

We were joined by David & Dominic who have run with Team G Shock before, and a bunch of our Crossfit CFT friends came out for the race as well! The obstacles were fun and challenging ranging from 20 ft walls with a rope to climb up to a junkyard full of cars you had to run over. The racing between the obstacles was off-road and the race ended with leaping over 2 rows of fire and crawling through a mud pit. Again, unlike any other race we've been a part of, but an amazing time.

Here are the official results:

1343rd place - David Wright - 36:16:10
2936th place - Dominic Parente - 41:16:60
4769th place - Nate Towne - 46:40:00
4772nd place - Sara Towne - 46:40:10

And even with the mud, we managed to keep the camera with us for most of the race to get a few photos!

The pile of dirty shoes when we got there - they will clean and donate
your shoes if you leave them
