BLOG: 3 Insane Races Coming to Maryland

The Warrior Dash, Run For Your Lives and Rebel Race are coming to Maryland. Test your limits!

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. - Thomas Edison

So you eat right, get in the gym three to five times a week AND want to test yourself to see how well your hard work is paying off?  Well, there are three upcoming opportunities in Maryland to do just that! The Warrior Dash, Run For Your Lives and Rebel Race are coming to Maryland! 

These are three insane runs loaded with obstacles that will push you to the limits! Running through tires, navigating through mud pits, leaping over fire and crawling under barbed wire are just a few of the obstacles you will encounter. 

This isn't your mom's fun un! You will get dirty!  You will wonder, "What have I gotten myself into?" And in the end, you will feel proud of your accomplishment and know that you completed something that you put your mind and body into. The Warrior Dash is 3.11 miles and takes place on May 19 and May 20 in Mechanicsville, MD. The Rebel Race has a 5k and 15k run option and takes place on July  in Monkton, MD.  Run For Your Lives is a zombie-themed race that takes place on Oct. 27 in Darlington, Md. All races have registrations fees that increase as you get closer to the event, and more information can be found on their websites in the hyperlinks above.

If anyone plans on competing in these events, please contact me and maybe we will use your photos and/or experience in a future article!

I had planned on doing the Warrior Dash this year, but I once again discovered how horribly boring cardio is. I just can't get past the boredom of it.

The zombie themed race sounds hilarious! I'm afraid I might get so scared I'll fall or wet my pants!

The Zombie race was SO MUCH FUN! You should try it this year. They do a great job.
