What makes BoldrDash different from other mud events and obstacle courses?
- At BoldrDash we strive to create our obstacles with scalable levels so they are challenging yet achievable for everyone.
- We average of 8-10 obstacles per mile on our courses.
- BoldrDash does not use “Fear Factor” obstacles such as fire, barbed wire, or electrodes.
- BoldrDash is a personal challenge, as such we feel everyone is a ‘winner’. We offer timing for all runners, however we do not give prizes or podium spaces for fastest times.
Do you monitor for obstacle completion and/or use penalties?
Our courses are monitored for safety, we do not monitor for completion of obstacles. We can offer participants ‘alternatives’ to obstacles that they do not complete.
Do you offer Elite Waves?
Yes. Our Elite Waves are for those who want to get on the course and challenge themselves at a faster pace with a more open field.
We encourage our elite runners to challenge themselves on the highest level of each obstacle. We cannot guarantee all elite wave runners will complete the course in the same manner.
How do I volunteer for a BoldrDash Event?
BoldrDash needs volunteers to help build the obstacles, prepare the course, and help out on event day. Without our volunteers there wouldn’t be a BoldrDash. Interested in joining the team? Check out our Volunteer Page.
Do I need to bring anything with me when I volunteer?
All volunteers need to present their waiver of liability and a photo ID at check-in. A water bottle is suggested. Meal(s) are provided by BoldrDash for full day volunteers, but it is always a good idea to bring a snack.
What do I get as a volunteer?
- Free Parking
- Free entry to the Rockin After-Party Festival
- Free or reduced event entry
- Free volunteer t-shirt
- Free meal for full day volunteers

GUARANTEED START TIME
Choosing a guaranteed start time assures that you will run within that time frame. It does not guarantee your team will run together – unless you all sign up before that wave closes. Choose your wave time carefully and make sure your teammates do not wait till it’s too late! You will receive your exact start time after registration closes.

Can I run the course twice in the same day?
You may have the opportunity to run in a second wave on your event day depending on availability. There will be a $15.00 charge. This will be considered a new registration, therefore you will be given a new bib. Ask for more information at the registration area on event day.

Can I change my wave time?
Once you register there is no guarantee you can change your wave, so choose wisely. If a change is granted there may be a fee attached.
What time do I need to arrive for my wave?
Arrive at the parking area at least 1 1/2 hours before your wave starts. Some of our events use busing to get you to the event. If busing provided it will be announced.

- Photo ID
- A change of clothes and a towel
- A gallon of water to rinse off – unless you would like to bask in your muddy glory all day.

The type of footwear you choose for the most part is up to you, however, there are NO CLEATS allowed on the course.
Where do I check in on Event Day?

Yes, there will be two water stations on the course and one for runners at the finish line.
Will there be trained medical personnel at the race?

What if I cannot complete an obstacle?
BoldrDash is about personal challenge, so we encourage all participants to at least attempt each obstacle. If you find that you are unable complete that obstacle, you may be given an alternate task by the event official(s) at the obstacle.
Will we be timed?
For your convenience it is a timed event, but, remember that BoldrDash is about being Bold – Boldly Overcoming Limitations with Determination. Our focus is about completing the event and challenging yourself at your level.
Is BoldrDash safe?
We want everyone to be safe and avoid injury. Obstacles are set in a manner to provide a challenging course in the safest manner possible. All runners and spectators will be required to sign a waiver before entering the course and/or designated spectator areas. No one should be on the course at any time without proper signed waiver(s). The nature of the course is such that there is a potential for injury. There are, of course, natural environmental hazards such as very uneven terrain, insects, rocks, plant-life etc. to be considered.
What if I am not ready to run, but I want to volunteer or be a spectator?
We have tons of volunteer opportunities and we NEED YOU! Please visit our volunteer page for more information.
Spectators can enjoy the after-party at the event and in most cases there will be spectator areas on the course itself. Spectator fees will be explained on the individual event pages as the details are nailed down.
Will the event take place if the weather is bad?
If it is safe…Yes! The rain would just make more mud.
Is there an after-party fee?
See individual event page for details regarding fees and entertainment.
What organizations and charities does BoldrDash support?
BoldrDash supports local. It is very important to Lynn Hall, President of BoldrDash to ‘give back’. Our unique business model invites local charities to partner with us and earn money for their organization, in exchange for fielding event volunteers and participating in pre-event co-marketing and advertising.
Listed below are just a few of the organizations we have partnered with over the years:
Our partnerships go further then a simple donation. We are committed to the mission statements of our non-profit partners. Look for representatives from some of these organizations as volunteers on event day!
If your organization is interested in becoming a benefactor check out BoldrDash Cares or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
