— Warrior Dash, the 5K obstacle course race that raises money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, will return to Camp Warwick for its ninth season on Saturday, May 20.

Twelve obstacles make up the course, including Muddy Mayhem, Warrior Roast, Goliath, Alcatraz, Pipeline, and Fisherman’s Catch. New obstacles this year include:

Magic Carpet Ride: Competitors can “walk on water” as they cross the wobbling, slippery mat to get to the other side. Core strength, balance, and speed are the three wishes of choice to fly on the Magic Carpet Ride.

Pallet Jacked: The water will cushion competitors falls as they traverse across swaying decks hovering above the water. Make it across, and competitors will be one step closer to the finish line.

Bridge the Gap: To reach each plank and summit the top of the pyramid, competitors will need to stretch as tall as they can. Calf muscles and hamstrings are the key to successfully Bridging the Gap.

All donations benefit the St. Jude Red Frog Events Proton Therapy Center, which opened on the St. Jude campus in Memphis in late 2015.

Warrior Hangout festivalThe Warrior Hangout festival offers something for participants and spectators alike. The festival is free and open to the public.

New are the Stein Standoff and Tire Flipping. In Stein Standoff, ten Warriors will test their strength as they hold up their stein with a straight arm. Bend, spill or drop the full stein, and lose the standoff. Winner walks away with a stein full of beer.

Warriors can test their strength or race their friends with Tire Flipping.

Also enjoy a live DJ, photo opportunities, lawn games, and contests like tug-o-war, dancing, best beard, and costumes.

Warrior Dash and its parent company, Red Frog Events, have donated more than $13.5 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
