Warrior Dash Returns May 19 & 20, 2012

The Rabun County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is pleased to announce that Red Frog Events will be bringing the Warrior Dash back to Mountain City, Georgia in 2012. This will be the third year the event will be held at Blue Ridge Camp. Red Frog said in an email that the 2012 event will be held on Saturday and Sunday May 19th and 20th. Registration is now open and is $50 for Saturday and $40 for Sunday if signed up before 4pm, June 26th. After then, pricing will increase to $55 and $45 until the end of the year. “We have worked very closely with Red Frog since the completion of this year’s event. It was by no means a foregone conclusion that they would return”, said Pete Cleaveland, Interim Executive Director of the CVB.
“Joey and Lori Waldman of Blue Ridge Camp worked very closely with Red Frog to get them to come back,” said Teka Earnhardt, Administrator for the CVB. She went on to say, “We are really excited about this decision; it will bring in over 30,000 people, fill our hotel rooms at an off time of year, and provide over $1,000,000 in spending in our community for that one weekend.”
“Now we need to work as a community to maximize the benefits we obtain from this wonderful event”, said Cleaveland. “The Clayton Merchants & Business Association (CMBA) stepped up this year with their ‘Warrior Concert’. Next year we need more, much more!”
Registration for Warrior Dash 2012 is open at www.warriordash.com. “I’m looking forward to seeing you guys in 2012!!!!!!!,” said Lauren Shields of Red Frog.
