Devil Dash is the ultimate 5K Race for thrill-seeking athletes and party-goers. On Saturday, Aug. 4, fearless runners will head to Ogden, to take on intense obstacles through Purgatory, running through more than three miles of adventurous terrain and celebrating with friends and family during an all-day festival with live music, food and beer in the Beer Garden of Eden.
Additional 2012 Devil Dash Venues include: Lyons, Colo.; Phoenix and Las Vegas.
Utah's Devil Dash Race will take place at the Golden Spike Event Center in Ogden and will have participants leaping through fire, crawling through mud pits, climbing over cargo nets, jumping over tire mounds, scaling Satan's Tower and working their way through additional grueling obstacles themed after the 7 deadly sins. The first wave of the race will begin at 9 a.m., followed by waves of racers taking off to tackle the course every half hour throughout the day.
Race Director Will Newcomer says, Devil Dash is an event that runners and spectators will never forget. After conquering an adventurous course with more than 12 natural and man made obstacles themed after the seven deadly sins, racers will celebrate with live music, beer and food, alongside their fellow devils and angels.
Participants are encouraged to suit up in their best devil and angel attire and are crowned with shiny devil wigs prior to racing. Beer from local breweries and devil grub from local food vendors will be available for purchase. Spectators are welcome to enjoy the live music playing throughout the day and watch the racers tackle several obstacles near the finish line.
