Takedown Gym’s Amazing Race Kicks Off Homecoming Week

Homecoming is on the way and the Warriors plan to “Cage the Cardinals” from Alexandria on Saturday, October 8 at 2pm on the stadium field at Brainerd High School. The week proceeding the big game will be filled with festivities for the whole community, the first of which is coming this Saturday, October 1: Takedown Gym’s Amazing Race. Gather a team of family or friends to take on this adventure that’s an insane obstacle course crossed with a wicked relay race! Teams of 4-6 people will race around the Brainerd High School complex — rain or shine — doing fantastical feats of strength, endurance, trivia and silliness. Be prepared for each teammate to run, sweat, swim, slip, slide or trot. All will have fun!

For more information and to sign up, visit Brainerd Community Ed at www.isd181.org or call Takedown Gym at 218-454-1770. The $10 per person fee to participate will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association. The race begins on Saturday at 2pm at Takedown Gym with packet pick-up, followed by adventure activities at Brainerd High School.

“We DARE you to participate”

In partnership with the community, Brainerd Public Schools will ensure all students achieve their individual potential by providing the highest quality programs and resources to prepare learners for an ever-changing global society.
