General Information

What sets BoldrDash apart from other obstacle course events?

Most of our events have an elite or Competitive bracket which utilizes the more difficult terrain and obstacles on the course.

Overall our events strive to be fun and accessible for everyone. This means we use scalable levels, so they are challenging yet achievable for everyone. We also do not use “Fear Factor” obstacles such as fire, barbed wire, or electrodes. 

We believe if you leave the course feeling challenged and proud of your accomplishment, you are a “winner”.  Although some of our events are timed, we do not offer podium spots or prizes for fastest times at most of our events.

Do you monitor for obstacle completion and/or use penalties?

Our courses are monitored for safety; we do not monitor for completion of obstacles unless it is a qualifing event for Ocr World Championship or a ‘Special Competitive Event’.  Depending on the event, we may offer participants ‘alternatives’ to obstacles they do not complete.

Do you offer elite waves?

See event details for specific Elite and OCR World Championship course and obstacle completion details. 

If there is not a competitive wave at an event, we suggest elite runners participate in the first wave of the day.  The first wave of the day is for anyone wanting to get on the course and challenge themselves at a faster pace with a more open field.

While 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.

Can I contact you directly if I have more questions before Event Day?

If it is before event day then please email us at info@boldrdashrace.com, but please know this email may not be monitored on an event day. We are ‘all hands on deck’ on event days!

Event Day

What time do I need to arrive for my wave?

Unless otherwise stated in your runner packet or confirmation email – Plan to 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 is provided, it will be announced.

What should I bring to BoldrDash on event day?

  • Photo ID
  • Cash
  • A change of clothes and a towel
  • Bug spray
  • Sunscreen
  • Any ointments you choose for natural plants (i.e., poison ivy, poison oak – although we try to clear areas we are using for the course, we do try to respect the land and mother nature; it will not be totally clear of natural greenery)
  • A good attitude

Note: 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?

Runners will receive an email and oor informational packet via email approximately 3-5 days before the event with specific Event Day information.  Our  registration check-in area can usually be found under the Orange BoldrDash Tent at the location.

Will there be a spot to leave my belongings?

A bag check or key check area may be available for runners and volunteers only if parking is not on-site.  Event specific information can be found on the Event Page or email info@boldrdashrace.com with any questions you have.

We are not responsible for lost/stolen items.  Be sure to check the event page for details regarding possible charges/fees.

Will there be water stations on the course?

COVID precautions have greatly limited our ability to provide water stations.  Most of our events have moved to a Self Hydration model.  Pleaswe plan accordingly – See specific event for more information.

Will there be trained medical personnel at the race?

Most of our events have EMT staffing.  Some smaller events may have EMT ‘on call’ – see specific Event Page for more informaiton or email us at info@boldrdashrace.com 

What if I cannot complete an obstacle?

Unless you are in a competitive wave there is no completion requirement.  BoldrDash is about personal challenge, so we encourage all participants to at least attempt each obstacle. If you find you are unable to complete an obstacle, you may be given an alternate task by the event official(s) at the obstacle.

Will we be timed?

Keep in mind BoldrDash is about being Bold and Boldly Overcoming Limitations with Determination; our focus is about completing the event and challenging yourself at your level on the obstacles.  See specific Event Page for details on timing availability.  For your convenience, some of our events are timed. 

Is BoldrDash safe?

We want everyone to be safe and avoid injury. Obstacles are set 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.

 

Will the event take place if the weather is bad?

If it is safe…Yes!

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 email info@boldrdashrace.com for more information. 

Although some of our events may not have a specific spectator area, in general spectators can enjoy the after-party area at the event,  Parking and Spectator fees are explained on the individual event pages as the details are nailed down.

Registration & Transfer Policy

How can I make sure my team runs together

The best way to save – SIGN UP EARLY
We may offer discounts, however they cannot be combined with any other registration discounts. Email reg@boldrdashrace.com  for more info on current discounts. No refunds and no transfers will be offered when using the discounts.

 

What do I get with my registration?

Every registrant gets a t-shirt and all finishers get a medal at the finish line!

Can I run the course twice in the same day?

Most of our events have a multi-lap option.  The fee is dependent on the event.   If you do not see the option on line, email reg@boldrdashrace.com or ssk for more information at the registration area on event day.

If you are not registered for multiple laps or in a specific wave, you should not be on the course. Medical personnel, staff, volunteers and event venue employees expect us to adhere to specific guidelines for safety and to reduce back up at obstacles.  We ask that everyone respect the guidelines.

Does BoldrDash have an age requirement?

BoldrDash is proud to offer events for all ages.  See wave time and age requirements on the specific Event Page you are participating in.

In general – BoldrDash Adult Courses  are open to anyone over the age of 11-13 depending on the event.
Kids and Family course waves are for ages 3-12 and run in the later waves of the day for safety reasons.  

Can I get a refund?

All participants have 24 hours from the time of purchase to request a full refund for any reason.  No refunds will be granted 24 hours after registration.  Credit card processing fees cannot be refunded.

Can I change my wave time?

Although we try our best to get everyone in the wavey of their choice, keep in mine that once you register there is no guarantee you can change your wave.  Register early and choose wisely. If there is availablity to change there may be a fee. 

Volunteering

How do I volunteer for a BoldrDash Event?

BoldrDash Kids

What are the ages for BoldrDash Kids and Family Waves?

Ages 3-12 are welcome on the course.  An adult must be present on the course with the child registrant.

What comes with my registration?

Although things may vary from event to event, generally, each child receives a BoldrDash Kids and Family T-shirt and a BoldrDash Kids Course Medal.

Adults can purchase a T-shirt during registration or on event day (event day subject to availability)

What if my child wants the full-course medal?

If we have extra medals, we will have them available for purchase at the Merchandise Tent on Event Day.

How long is the course?

The Kids and Family Courses tend to be between 1-2 miles in length.

What are the obstacles like?

The Kids and Family Course generally runs along a section of the adult course, so many of the obstacles are the same ones the adults use.  Alternate obstacles are placed on the course where needed for safety.

Can my child do the Adult Obstacle instead of the Kids Option?

If there is a Kids option for an obstacle, the Kids and Family participants must use that option.  Our obstacles are built with all ages in mind.  All parents and/or adults running on the course who registered in the Kids and Family wave must also use the Kids and Family obstacle option.

BoldrDash Kids and Family Waves are an incredible way to spend the day together!  Please check the individual Events Page for more information.
