In 2019, NYC Pride welcomes WorldPride in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising and a half-century of LGBTQIA+ liberation. Celebrate your pride and show solidarity with your LGBTQIA+ friends, family, peers, and allies by participating in the NYRR Virtual Pride Run 5K Powered by Strava wherever you are in the world, anytime between June 22 and June 30.
For this race, we’re offering access to a limited-edition pair of Goodr x NYRR Virtual Racing Powered by Strava sunglasses when you purchase a NYRR Half-Marathon Virtual Training program in the virtual race checkout. These Pride themed shades will only be available on a first-come first served basis, so act fast to lock in your Pride Goodrs and train in style for a half-marathon! (Stay tuned for more details on a virtual half-marathon this fall.) You will receive an email from NYRR late April with codes to redeem your training program and sunglasses, which will be shipped through Goodr.
Please note: Goodr glasses can only be shipped to the United States and Canada.
