Warrior Dash St. Louis

On Saturday, October 15, Warrior Dash invaded Blackhawk Valley Hunting Preserve in Old Monroe, Missouri. Participants race through "3.17 hellish miles" overcoming 12 obstacles with names such as Assassin's Escape, Teetering Traverse, Satan's Steps and Deadman's Drop. Costumes are encouraged. Racers are greeted at the finish line with music, beer and a good hosing off courtesy of the Old Monroe Fire Department. The only thing missing is Kenny Blankenship and Vic Romano. Jon Gitchoff was there and brought back these photos.
