The 24th annual AIDS Walk, Run & Street Challenge San Diego has added the Street Challenge 5K obstacle course as a new element for this year’s event, scheduled for September 29 in Balboa Park. The obstacle course will be located at the park’s Marston Point and will feature obstacles intended to test participants’ strength, endurance, agility, and quick thinking. The run will have three stages that will begin at 9:00 a.m., 9:30 a.m., and 10:00 a.m., respectively. Event planners also are encouraging participants to wear costumes, which obstacle course judges will rate. Judges will select one individual and one team to receive the “Best Dressed” trophy. The fundraiser, a program of the San Diego LGBT Community Center, is San Diego’s largest one-day HIV/AIDS fundraiser and raised approximately $400,000 for 10 local agencies last year.
