Do you have what it takes to complete the Gardner Grind?  On Saturday, August 11, Gardner Parks and Recreation will host an adventure race at Celebration Park.  On the trail around the west side of the park there will be obstacles, water challenges and of course...mud!! Expect to get dirty and have a great time!  The race is one mile long and there will be 14-15 challenges along the way.  In addition to the race, there will be music and snacks available to all.  Each participant will receive a t-shirt.  Wear a costume if you'd like...there will be a costume contest with a winner every hour.  The ages for the race are 7 to 107 years old!  The first heat will go off at 8:00 a.m. that morning and anywhere from 2-3 heats will go off per hour.  When registering, participants will choose one of the following race times:

8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.


Participants are encouraged to enroll early. Families, groups and individuals are all welcome to sign up!
