The Devil Dash will take place in and around Bohn Park on Saturday, September 1, and Sunday, September 2, over Labor Day weekend. Devil Dash will have participants jumping through Rings of Fire, crawling through mud pits, climbing over cargo nets, sliding down a Slippery Slope to Hell slip n’ slide, scaling Satan’s Tower and working their way through additional grueling obstacles themed after the seven deadly sins. The first wave of the race will begin at 9 a.m., followed by waves of racers taking off to tackle the course every half hour throughout the two-day event.
Race Director Will Newcomer says, “Devil Dash is an event that runners and spectators will never forget. We are excited to return to Lyons for our second year in a row, as it has such a fun, adventurous, and scenic course.” Participants are encouraged to suit up in their best Devil and Angel attire prior to racing. Beer from local breweries and Devil grub from local food trucks will be available for purchase in the Beer Garden of Eden. Spectators are welcome to enjoy the live music playing throughout the day, watch the Devils tackle several obstacles near the finish line, and participate in other activities on site.
A portion of the proceeds from the event benefit LifeQuest Transitions, a Colorado-based nonprofit organization that provides outdoor adventures and training to wounded warriors. Additionally, nonprofit organizations or clubs who provide 10 to 20 volunteers for race day can earn up to $1,000 for their organization.
