Monster Dash is a Halloween-themed “Amazing Race” style event where teams of four compete to complete 12 challenges in the shortest amount of time. All proceeds will benefit the Indianola YMCA!
Grab a team of four, find your fun and frightful costumes, and head to the Indianola Square! Each creepy crew will navigate a twenty-block course of mystery and mayhem. Along the way, we’ll drive you batty with hilarious and haunting challenges! These challenges were brewed to mess with your mind and muscles. Spooky surprises and treacherous traps speckle the route — zombies, road blocks, and other tricky treats! Does your team have what it takes? Will you dominate or detour? To be declared winners of this dastardly dash, your entire freaky foursome must be present at the finish line with all challenges successfully mastered. May all other teams R.I.P.
