BADASS Dash™

is one of the world’s leading producers of Obstacle Course Challenges & Adventure Races and whose events benefit Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder.

It is the belief of both BADASS Dash™ and Autism Speaks that by working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle. BADASS Dash™ is committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals as the cause is bigger than the obstacles.

BADASS Dash™ has 4 divisions for you to select from, the choice is yours

ELITE DIVISION

The ELITE division, as the name clearly depicts, is geared toward individuals who are well trained (i.e. police, firefighters, armed forces, competitive athletes) and are looking to “get after it” while having the race of a lifetime. This division showcases those who can traverse through the obstacles while navigating the terrain the fastest with opportunities to win big prizes and even bigger bragging rights.

K-9 COMPANION DIVISION

The K9 COMPANION division is the first of its kind in the OCR genre where participants can bring their canines to take part in a race specifically designed / modified for them to compete as a team. Each team will be comprised of one male or female runner that is a minimum of 14 years of age and a canine that is a minimum of 1 year old – no matter what size, shape or breed. A maximum lead of 4 feet will be required for all teams competing and they will follow the same course as the Recreation division with a select number of obstacles designed specifically for each team to conquer together.

RECREATION DIVISION

The RECREATION division, which can be anyone from an avid racer to a weekend warrior to someone looking for a new personal challenge, is geared toward those who are not specifically trained in Obstacle Course Challenges or Adventure Races but want to set a goal on the finish line and then achieve it.

KIDS DASH

The KIDS DASH division for children 4 - 13 years of age. The Kids Dash for 4 - 6 years old will feature a 200-yard dash with obstacles just their size while the 7 - 13 years old get to race on a 1-mile course with a mixture of adult and kids obstacles.
