Warrior Dash Hits New Hampshire as Part of International Tour for 2012

GILFORD, NH (December 19, 2011) – Warrior Dash is the ultimate event for thrill-seeking athletes and party-goers. On Saturday, September 15, 2012, fearless runners will head to Gunstock Mountain Resort to take on 12 “bigger and badder” obstacles over 3.21 miles of extreme terrain. After conquering an insane physical challenge, racers celebrate with friends and family during an all day festival with live music, food and beer.

In 2011, over half a million athletes turned to Warrior Dash as an alternative to the classic running race. Participants can expect new extremes for 2012, as Warrior Dash returns with a vengeance debuting bigger and more innovative obstacles than ever before. The festival area will be the scene of greater celebrations with more food, drinks and post-race activities.

“Warrior Dash is an event that competitors and spectators will never forget and the combination of mud, sweat and beer keeps people coming back each year for more!” Race Director Alex Yount says.

Warrior Dash is partnered with GreenSneakers, an organization with a uniquely effective and environmentally friendly fundraising opportunity. With the help of Warriors, 370,000 pounds of tennis shoes were donated and given a second chance at life in 2011.

Warrior Dash participants requested “The craziest frickin’ day of your life” and Red Frog Events, a Chicago-based company, has answered their Warrior cries with 65 Warrior Dash locations for 2012 in the United States, Australia, Canada and Europe.

Warriors will conquer extreme obstacles, push their limits and celebrate with live music, beer and Warrior helmets.
