Fire Dash comes to Lake Sammamish State Park Saturday

The nation’s only firefighting-themed 5K obstacle course is coming to Lake Sammamish State Park at 8 a.m. Aug. 16.
The Fire Dash, designed by firefighters, puts participants through a slew of obstacles that test stamina and agility, and make ample use of fire and smoke. The course is likened to a mini fire academy for new recruits.
Day of event registration is $98, and includes a T-shirt, bib and a beer for those of legal drinking age. Participants must be 14 or older to join. Runners can register individually, but teams are recommended to get through some of the obstacles.
A portion of all proceeds go to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and to a local fire department’s benevolent fund. Learn more at
Parking at Lake Sammamish State Park, 2000 N.W. Sammamish Road, is $10 for a day pass or $30 annually for a Discover Pass.

    I have been looking for any announcements or explanations as to what happened with this event as well. I registered for two people, and that wasn’t cheap. The Fire Dash’s web site seems to have been taken down. We were told that our registration would be good for this year in Portland or in Seattle. If anyone can find out anything for us that would be greatly appreciated.

Got something to say?
