More than 600 people are expected to take part in a 5km dash over a series of aptly named obstacles including Stormin’ Norman, Horizontal Hike and Deadman’s Drop.

Survivors will then celebrate with music, beer and muddy shorts.

This year, Warrior Dash has joined the Red Cross to raise funds to help support some of the most vulnerable people and communities in Australia. Red Cross executive director for WA Steve Joske said he hoped as many people as possible would take the ultimate challenge and compete.

‘The Warrior Dash is a ‘must-do’ for all adventure-seeking warrior men and women,’ he said.

‘We think it’s a fun way to challenge yourself and raise awareness of the good work that Red Cross does in WA.’

Red Cross will also host a warrior VIP Tent, where all who fundraise for Red Cross will be recognised with VIP treatment, including refreshments, a chill-out area and a chance to celebrate with fellow Red Cross warriors.
