The Race.



Stay tuned for 2019 race details.

Walnut Creek Park

Ages 13+ are welcome to participate. 

Designed to inspire teams to run, walk, crawl, climb, and laugh your way to a brazen sense of accomplishment, the Guardians' Gauntlet provides something for every level of athlete.

The 2018 Guardians' Gauntlet brought new obstacles, new challenges, new faces, and a whole lot of fun. Racers also found some of Albemarle County's finest Police Officers participating and providing help at various obstacles. In fact, some of our obstacles emulated officer training scenarios. The challenge is meant for everyone to come out to share in the event, cheer each other on, and meet some of the Officers who protect our community everyday.

2018 prizes were sponsored by L.L. Bean - they graciously donated some AMAZING items.
