The nation’s leading obstacle race series adds locations and encourages 

participation of fitness newcomers

CHICAGO, IL (January 4, 2017) – Entering its ninth season, Warrior Dash, the 5K obstacle course race that more than 3 million people have completed since 2009, will feature 24 stops across North America beginning in Florida this February. As the obstacle course race that anyone can start and everyone can finish, this year will feature multiple new obstacles with the return of many fan-favorites.

“Heading into our 9th season of Warrior Dash, we’ve challenged more than 3 million participants since our inception,” says Ryan Kunkel, Co-CEO of Red Frog Events, the producers of Warrior Dash. “For many runners, Warrior Dash is their first organized race and glimpse into the obstacle racing industry. We’re proud to be the gateway for so many people to find their fitness inspiration and do something different during their weekend.”

Obstacles:
With 12 obstacles making up the 5k Warrior Dash course, many signature obstacles will return to the Battleground in 2017 including Muddy Mayhem, Warrior Roast, Goliath, Alcatraz, Pipeline, Fisherman’s Catch, and more. New obstacles debuting in 2017 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.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital:
Entering its sixth consecutive year, Warrior Dash continues their philanthropic commitment with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Participants can sign-up and fundraise as a St. Jude Warrior. In doing so, they gain access to the St. Jude VIP tent, with private showers, and additional benefits. All donations go towards the St. Jude Red Frog Events Proton Therapy Center which opened on the St. Jude campus in Memphis in late 2015.

A Kick-Ass Festival:
The Warrior Hangout offers something for everyone – participants and spectators alike. New in 2017 is 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.

Enjoy a live DJ, more photo opportunities, lawn games and a full lineup of contests like tug-o-war, dancing, best beard, costume, and more. With more shade and seating options available, the festival remains free of charge and open to the public.

Participant Swag and Medals:
A new finisher t-shirt will be debuting at Warrior Dash in 2017. Participants will continue to receive a Warrior Dash signature fuzzy helmet with their registration. A new year brings a new twist on participant medals with Warrior Dash’s 2017 edition featuring a cube-shape that can double as a die to promote fun workouts and training routines.

The OCR World Championships and Warrior Dash:
Warrior Dash and the OCR World Championships continue their partnership for the international championship event taking place on October 13-15, 2017 at Blue Mountain Resort in Ontario, Canada. Competitive Warriors can qualify by finishing in the top 10 for their gender in any Warrior Dash competitive wave. The top three male and top three female finishers will be recognized on stage at their respective Warrior Dash award ceremony.

FIREFLY MUSIC FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES DAILY LINEUPS AND LAUNCH OF SINGLE DAY CAMPING AND PASSES

(CHICAGO, IL and MEMPHIS, TN – Oct. 5, 2016) – Red Frog Events announced today a donation of 1 percent of annual profits to its charity partner, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. This is the first time a St. Jude partner has committed a percentage of its annual profits to support the hospital’s lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children.

Red Frog Events first partnered with St. Jude in 2009, and through various programs and initiatives, has raised more than $13.5 million toward a $25-million commitment made to the hospital in 2013. This commitment funded the first proton therapy center in the world dedicated solely to children. The St. Jude Red Frog Events Proton Therapy Center opened December 2015 with a vibrant ambiance that resembles Red Frog Events’ Chicago headquarters.

“From the moment we learned about the inspiring, lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, we realized we had an opportunity to support their efforts and make a significant impact,” said Ryan Kunkel, co-CEO of Red Frog Events. “There’s no other organization providing the caliber of research, findings and treatment to childhood cancer. We’re honored to increase our dedication to St. Jude with this commitment.”

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. Because of the generous support of partnerships like this, no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food, because St. Jude believes all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

“Red Frog Events has truly embraced the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and this decision to donate 1 percent of its annual profits is an innovative way to demonstrate Red Frog’s deep passion and commitment to supporting St. Jude patients and their families,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “We are grateful for Red Frog Events’ leadership, staff and supporters, who help St. Jude continue our pioneering research and exceptional care, including the St. Jude Red Frog Events Proton Therapy Center, which gives St. Jude doctors the ability to deliver state-of-the-art care tailored specifically for children.”

Red Frog Events was founded in 2007 by Joe Reynolds. Its fundraising efforts for St. Jude have come from a variety of efforts and through the company’s events and services. Red Frog’s Warrior Dash obstacle race series has raised millions of dollars and the Firefly Music Festival has been a key driver of the St. Jude Music Gives program.

FIREFLY MUSIC FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES DAILY LINEUPS AND LAUNCH OF SINGLE DAY CAMPING AND PASSES

INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 2, 2016) – What happens when extreme obstacle course racing is paired with the fact that more than half of Americans (58%) – and 79% of millennials – admit to singing in the shower weekly? An optimal opportunity for muddy, musical magic. As part of its HappiMess campaign, Delta Faucet announced its continued partnership with Warrior Dash events and will debut a new consumer stage in the form of an in-shower karaoke station for participants to belt out their favorite tunes while getting clean post-race.

The innovative, outdoor showering station delivers a new twist for Warrior Dash race participants who can turn up the volume to their go-to shower serenades as they rinse clean after races across the U.S. this summer.

“From bounding over fire and trudging through mud, Warrior Dash race participants are no strangers to having fun while getting messy,” said Catherine Roper, Delta® brand marketing director. “We’re proud to be back for a second year with the Warrior Dash events on our mission to help consumers embrace life’s messes with confidence and fun. The added karaoke component allows Dashers to celebrate a bit more loudly and with a bit more fun in a unique, only-in-the-shower way.”

 

Additional Singing in the Shower Findings

The Delta Faucet Singing in the Shower survey identified the following trends for those who turn their shower into private concerts:

• Nearly 1 in 3 (29%) Americans sing in the shower 4 to 7 days a week
• Topping the shower charts: Pop (27%), Rock (24%), R&B (21%), Country (20%) and Show Tunes (7%)
• 51% of Americans and 76% of Millennials admit to eavesdropping on their significant other singing with suds
• High hopes! 24% of shower singers liken themselves to British songstress Adele when singing in the shower, followed by Taylor Swift (17%) and Michael Jackson (16%)
• Shower singers’ favorite decades rank as follows: 2000 boybands and pop divas (31%), 1990s hit makers (20%), 70s jams (17%), 80s favorites (17%) and 60s oldies (15%)

Before reaching the karaoke shower station, Warrior Dash race participants conquer 12 world-class obstacles throughout the 5K course. Participants can experience a custom, outdoor shower station featuring more than 40 Delta® H2Okinetic® showerheads, which deliver water in a unique wave pattern to deliver the feeling of a warmer, more drenching shower. The shower station can be found at the following six Warrior Dash events this summer:

• Minnesota – July 23
• Ohio – August 20 & 21
• Pennsylvania – August 27
• Indiana – September 10
• Colorado – September 17
• Oregon – September 24

“As Warrior Dash enters its eighth season of providing memorable, HappiMess experiences – having partners like Delta Faucet helps us deliver those moments on and off the course,” said Alex Yount, Sr. Manager of Partnerships at Warrior Dash and Red Frog Events. “The in-shower karaoke component delivers an interactive, fun and personalized way to celebrate our Warriors’ accomplishments and transform them back to clean.”

All H2Okinetic showerheads at the events are WaterSense-labeled and flow at 2.0 gallons per minute or less to create the feeling of more water while using up to 40 percent less water than a standard showerhead. Delta Faucet is a proud partner of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense® Program and supports the program’s goal of protecting the nation’s water supply.
