Guardians' Gauntlet

The Guardians' Gauntlet is a 5k obstacle course challenge run in beautiful Walnut Creek Park. The event is designed to test participant's physical abilities in an inclusive environment.

While competing, the racers also have the opportunity to interact with members of the Albemarle County Police Department, who will be on hand to visit with the community, assist at the obstacles, and compete!

Our 2nd annual Guardians' Gauntlet challenge was held on Saturday, September 23, 2017. Thank you all of the amazing participants, wonderful volunteers, and our awesome sponsors! We look forward to seeing you next year!
