I'm sure you could find a charity run/walk 5K to do prior to the Warrior Dash & build up to it. There are plenty of leisurely 5Ks out there.
There are also Mud Runs that are similar to (but less intense than) the Warrior Dash. I'll be doing 2 of these in Lincoln & just outside of Omaha next month. They are pretty laid back events so you wouldn't have to worry if you had to take breaks to walk. You won't be the only one.
