AARP and La Posada partner to host the Inaugural Wisdom Warrior Challenge- A Race For The Ages in sunny Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on March 14, 2020.  Athletes both seasoned and recreational will race on track amidst the palm trees and soft breezes. The race is for ages 55 to 100+ and offers running and walking options for some events. The biggest challenge is stepping out of your comfort zone and into your sneakers! This day is guaranteed to change your attitude!
