Obstacles & Terrain
There are twelve challenging and fun obstacles to complete as a participant. Competing in the Big Bash Obstacle Dash may be harmful to your body. As a contestant, it is your responsibility to remove yourself from the race if you are unable to complete an obstacle.
For guidance and safety, there will be course officials at every obstacle. As a competitor, you are responsible to notify a course official if you are injured or feel your safety is in danger
If you receive assistance from any spectator or someone outside of your heat on any obstacles, you will be ineligible for prizes.
Wha Cha Get!
Each Basher gets a cool high quality cotton T-Shirt, racing bib, free first beer, and an authentic Dasher Von Bashington mustache (yup, we said mustache!)... oh, great memories and probably some memorable battle scars too!

A Radio Frequency Chip timing is used to record your time. The chip is a miniature transponder and is coded with a unique identification number corresponding to each Basher. Your time is automatically recorded at the start and finish line.
You can put your chip on your bib or shoe. We recomend the shoe as the bib can get torn away during the race!
To secure your chip to your shoe:
- • Un-lace your shoe half-way.
- • Weave both laces through the open sides of the chip.
- • Re-lace your shoe tightly. Double knot it cause this course is gonna beat you and your shoes up!
Don't have laces? Ask for zip ties at packet pick-up!
