Fire Dash comes to state park Aug. 16

August 12, 2014

By Staff

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 here.

Parking at Lake Sammamish State Park, 2000 N.W. Sammamish Road, is $10 for a day pass or $30 annually for a Discover Pass.
