This year marks the 35th running of this festive collaboration between NYRR and Front Runners New York, a competitive and social club for LGBT runners, multisport athletes, and their allies. Join more than 5,000 runners and show your pride at this five-mile run in Central park. Whether you’re a top racer or a novice looking for a healthy run and some good camaraderie, the Pride Run delivers the goods.
This year, a portion of the proceeds benefits GLSEN, INC- the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. GLSEN strives to assure that every member of every school community is valued and respected, regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender identity or expression. GLSEN believes that such an atmosphere promotes and solidifies a positive sense of self, which is the basis of educational achievement and personal growth.
