When you were young, did you ever fantasize about riding on a magic carpet? Do you miss the days of caking yourself in dirt? Re-experience your childhood (and add a few adult beverages into the mix) at this year’s Warrior Dash.

#WarriorDash is an obstacle race that anyone can start and everyone can finish, if you got what it takes… From elite athletes to your average Joe, patrons of all types are welcome. The race provides a dozen warrior-tastic obstacles such as Fisherman’s Catch, Alcatraz, and Goliath (to name a few…). Additionally, the event includes 10 mud obstacles to test your fearless superiority. After dashing through the course (or crawling), celebrate like the royalty you are. Participants are rewarded with a medal, a viking-inspired helmet, mighty t-shirt, and refreshing ice-cold beverage.

If this doesn’t sound like your cup of tea (or pitcher of beer), don’t fret. You can always volunteer, fundraise, or cheer on your fellow fighters as they compete. The Warrior Dash also offers great options for large groups. Before signing up, review the details online to make sure your group qualifies!

From Florida to California (even in Hotels for Hope’s HQ of Austin, Texas), 24 locations stretch across the United States for adventure seekers. If the nearest race isn’t close enough to your hometown for a day trip, we’ve got your back. After battling for a rightful place on the throne, patrons can hibernate victoriously at the lowest guaranteed rates. In Hotels for Hope’s second year partnering with Warrior Dash, not only will travelers pocket books appreciate it, so will the children of St. Jude Hospital. Every room night generates a $2 donation back to “Music Gives To St. Jude Kids” through our RoomFunding program.

Hurry, valiant friends. Secure your ticket and book your room now, before it’s too late!
