Warrior Dash good for local economy

For the third year, the extreme mud race Warrior Dash has chosen the E.A Cummings Center as their Genesee County location.

This year the event is bigger than ever.

More people are registered than last year and that means more money coming into the local economy.

A little over 26-thousand "warriors" signed up, that's one-thousand more than last year.

The event brings in millions to the local economy.

As high as 4 point 8 million according to organizers.

Participants tell us aside from washing off, the next thing they want to do is eat.

Local restaurants like the Bray Road Diner are happy to see the big event back for another year.
