Fire Dash comes to Lake Sammamish State Park Saturday
August 14, 2014
New: Aug. 15, 11:14 a.m.
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 www.thefiredash.com.
Parking at Lake Sammamish State Park, 2000 N.W. Sammamish Road, is $10 for a day pass or $30 annually for a Discover Pass.
