Listen to the interview with Aaron Beatty from the WPAL Fitness Center in DuBois.

The Western Pennsylvania Police Athletic League, Inc (WPAL) had to reschedule the WPAL Wicked Warrior in Treasure Lake near DuBois, PA due to the recent spike in positive Covid-19 cases. Originally set for July 24th and 25th, the event is now scheduled for Labor Day Weekend. Hopes are to hold all 3 legs of the race and include the GIANT 340 x 40 Foot Slip and Slide!

Safety First! The Wicked Warrior may look a little different this year, depending on what the rules are when the event takes place. The WPAL wants you to know that they are taking precautions to limit touch points, allow for social distancing, and sanitizing surfaces. The goal is to host a fun and safe event while staying within our state regulations in relation to COVID-19.

​This event is a Mud Run / Obstacle Course with a 10K Main Course, a 5K Intermediate Course, and a Kid’s Obstacle Course with giant Slip n Slide. There will be fun and challenging obstacles and a little mud!

Suggested ages for the Kid’s Course are 3-9 years old. Children will register for a specific race time. Each registration slot would max out at ten kids. Children would then be permitted to have a limited amount of time on the Slip n Slide. The volunteers will be using a heavy amount of Dial Antibacterial Dish Soap to keep the slide as clean as possible and slippery too!

Touchless Check-In would be put in place for the main race as the Kid’s Race with separate heats and limited touch points.
