Spirited—and colorful—participants warm up at the starting point. For those seeking some competitive heat, Diva Dash offers time waves and prizes for women who want to race. But no pressure! Many participants opt for the untimed waves, competing only with their girlfriends and skipping obstacles without penalty.

Focus and coordination are key at this tricky checkpoint. Diva Dash's 3-mile course covers varied terrain and obstacles designed to push you slightly out of your comfort zone, but if you want to skip one that's totally okay with us!
