Guardians of the Night K9 5K


The Guardians of the Night K9 5K presented by the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, returns on July 31st to the South Carolina State Fairgrounds (1200 Rosewood Dr)

This is the 10th year for this event which raises funds to support the RCSD K9 Unit. These funds help cover the cost of food, medical care, training equipment, safety equipment, and more.

2021 is also the 10-year anniversary of K9 Fargo killed in the line of duty, an important reminder about why this event is such an important fundraiser for the K9s

The non-timed run/walk starts at 8:30pm and the timed run begins at 9:30pm.

Friendly dogs are welcome!

We’re also offering a virtual option for those who can’t be at the event but still want to support the K9s.
