The Warrior Homecoming Run has brought out hundreds of 1k/5k/10k racers on Homecoming morning over the past several years.  The events start at 9am at Kiwanis Park with the 10K run and at 9:15am with a 5K run/walk.  Both courses are USATF certified.  The runners cross the finish line on the track at Don Adamson Field.  The 1k Fun Run is held on the track starting at 10am.  All proceeds from this run benefit the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation and the Brainerd Warrior Nordic Ski Team.  REGISTER NOW!

Join us for Packets & Pints at the Roundhouse Brewery the week before.  You can pick up your race packet, register to race, and help BPSF earn precious dollars with a $1 for $1 match for each pint sold.  The Roundhouse Brewery, Randall State Bank, and B.Johnson and Associates are ALL donating $1 per pint sold to the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation.  See you there!
