Is there a Warrior lurking inside of you? The Warrior Dash is one of the most amazing events I've ever seen. I went this year as a spectator to cheer on Endorphin Drip's own member, Samantha, who successfully completed the entire course without having trained for it beyond going hiking a lot. 11,000 people of all shapes and sizes and differing levels of fitness jogged, walked, ran, rolled through the mud, waded a pond, climbed ropes, jumped over fire, crossed narrow balance beams, struggled over barricades, and overcame a host of other obstacles. Click the link below to see our amazing Samantha tackling one of the obstacles...

Do I think I have a inner warrior in me? Absolutely not!! So, what I'm wanting to do is form a team where every member is dedicated to getting each other member of the group through the obstacles. We give boosts, balance the wobbly, lift the tired, unstick the stuck, and all cross the finish line together with smiles barely visible through all the muck on our faces. This is a very informal race in that there are no judges deciding if you did an obstacles properly and no penalty for sneaking around the side of one although I'm very confident that if we all stick together we will all be hugely successful and will attain the status of true Warrior!

In addition to winning a lifetime of self confidence, we will also get a free t-shirt, medallion, warrior helmet, a free beer, and a kick-ass party with a live band.

As of today, all 10:45 start times have been reserved at the 2014 Warrior Dash, however, start times are not monitored so it is easy to join up with another group of people starting.  Waves of 100 people go through the start gate every 15 minutes and nobody is counting. 

Samantha will be our go-to person for advice. She won't be running with us because she's doing the event with her mother again next year but she will be more than happy to share her experiences. Here is a sample conversation I've had with Sam.

Me: Did the mud get in your underwear?
Sam: Yes, I spent an hour feeling like I'd crapped my pants
Me: I think I'll be buying some tight fitting lycra shorts

LOL - knowledge is golden!

I've already registered with a plus 1 and am very excited to start getting ready for this. Maybe we'll find some innovative and fun ways to have Meetups where we can train for the barriers and work out some strategies for getting over them as a team.

Please don't reserve a spot on this Meetup unless you have actually registered through the Warrior Dash website. Holding spots just in case you might decide later to participate will make it impossible for us to actually form a team. Thank you for your cooperation in this!

Horning’s Hideout is located just 35 minutes west of Portland in North Plains

Directions to Horning's Hideout:

First off, do not use GPS!! It will take you down the wrong country roads!
From Portland Take Highway 26 West approximately 15 miles to Exit 57, North Plains/Glencoe Road.
Turn right (North) from the exit onto Glencoe Road.
Take Glencoe Rd. approximately 1.5 miles to a left fork that is Pumpkin Ridge Road.
Follow Pumpkin Ridge Rd. for 5 miles to a right fork onto Brunswick Canyon Road .
Follow Brunswick Canyon Road 1 mile down into the canyon.

p.s. I'm sure I'll be making lots of changes on this page as I gather more info so check back in with us every now and then

    I had really been dreading this "hike" but it was way more fun than I had thought it would be. Thank you everybody for coming out for this, it wouldn't have been near as much fun without you guys there!

    Fellow warriors, I will miss the Dashthis year. I was in a bit of a biking accident and have some stitches and a concussion and some other tweaky injuries. No broken bones, but enough tweakiness to keep me out of the dash. I will be rooting you all on and I admire your team spirit. GO you endorphin drips, GO!

    Lastly, although anybody that knows me knows that is never really a lastly with me, it might be important to remember that there is little or no cell service at the event so we'll have to find each other the old fashioned way. It's hard to imagine when we lived without cell phones, isn't it?

    Posting through the Meetup email app is an awful experience so I hope nobody minds that I'm using this venue to get this information out. Okay, the next important thing to remember is the MUD! If you are taking your vehicle a layer of painters plastic over the seats can be helpful. There are no places at the event to shower off although there is a mud pit that makes you slightly less muddy than you were before you jump in.

    Okay everybody, we are less than a week away! A couple important things to know is that the entry into the event can be jammed. Last year the waiting lines into the place were 45 to 60 minutes long and with 11,000 people attending expect lines to get your shorts and stuff. We will meet at the starting gate at 10:30 am and we start at 10:45 am. If you are late, well, have fun and we hope to see you on the course!

    Come on...are we MOABers and Shakers, or little wimpy wuuses? We can take this course by storm! We can clamber over and under (or around in some cases) any obstacle they put up! We can show the world that we are more than the sum of our years! And that's alot of sums!
    We are MOAB! We put the BOOM in baby boomers!
    Who is with us? WHO IS WiTH US??!!

      I get tired just reading that. :)

    • Kellye J.

      Guess I am a little stoked, but this is gonna be fun and I am excited! WOOT!

      May 12, 2014

  • Kellye J.

    I couldnt get the 10:45, but I got the 12:15 wave. At worst we may be able to make multiple teams and go in different waves??

    October 13, 2013

    • Severt L.

      Kellye, when I was there I saw absolutely no monitoring of who starts when, they simply call for that wave and people go. Yes, at worst we can go in different waves but it really won't be a problem to go all together. Thanks for signing up, I'm looking forward to this!

      October 13, 2013

  • Severt L.

    The team is starting to form. I was worried that nobody would sign up for it! Thanks, everybody!

    September 22, 2013

    • Lori

      I'm very excited about this. I was already thinking about doing it next year know there might be some obstacles I couldn't complete on my own. I love this team idea.

    • Severt L.

      There are several obstacles I'm sure I can't do on my own so I knew this was the only way to go. Thanks for joining up!
