Playsmart’s Brains and Brawn Kids Adventure Challenge

We are so excited to see a new kind of adventure race! One that takes kids to use their brains on a higher level. PlaySmart, a national non-profit organization that provides athletic and academic opportunities to America’s youth, will host the 1st Annual “Brains and Brawn” Kids Adventure Challenge in Tampa Bay on November 10th, 2013 at Al Lopez Park. How much fun does this sound: climbs/slides, mud runs, slime tunnels, tire rolls, low crawl spaces, sprint races and other elements throughout the park will be what kids are challenged to achieve.

Team are encouraged to participate together to “think” about how to compete in these adventures. Have a really cool team name and gear? Could win you a prize! Healthy snacks will be provided by GoGo squeeZ. And of course, everyone who competes (ages 5-14) will receive a medal.

There is an early bird discount and honestly, it sounds like so much fun! Hope your fit kids are ready to push away the screen for a day of a REAL adventure!

Sign up today!
