The famed Warrior Dash made its first appearance in Walton County this weekend and those who competed hope it will become an annual event. Local zumba teacher Kristen Henshaw was one of the brave warriors who took on the 11 obstacle course Saturday.
“It was super nice pulling up to the venue and seeing Walton County Sheriff and EMS personnel there,” Henshaw said, adding it was her third Warrior Dash, but the first one so close to home. “The other venue was nice, but having this one in our backyard was fantastic. Also, the place they picked was just so beautiful and secluded and it was the perfect setting! They did a fantastic job of keeping everyone safe and having a great time.”
Henshaw said the after party went on well after the last wave of competitors were on the course.
Walton County’s first Warrior race took place Saturday in the Jersey area. Henshaw shared her photographs of the course, taken by her husband, David.
