Atlanta Pride Rainbow Run 5K - VIRTUAL EDITION!

Race: Atlanta Pride Rainbow Run 5K - VIRTUAL EDITION!
Sat August 29 - Sat October 31
RaceJoy Ready



First, we hope you and your family are staying safe through the current pandemic. In July, the Atlanta Pride Committee announced that the 2020 Pride Festival will not be held in person due to the ongoing pandemic. Instead, the festival will be held as a virtual event centered around the scheduled dates in October. We want to invite you to kickoff the 50th Celebration of Atlanta Pride Festival with a fun VIRTUAL 5K Run/Walk!  By moving the Atlanta Pride Festival online, we will ensure that LGBTQ+ people can still experience the joy and togetherness of our 50th Annual Pride Festival and we hope to welcome new people to take part wherever they are.

We greatly appreciate your support and participation! We will hope to see you in person next year!  In the meantime, please join us for our VIRTUAL 5K open to everyone! We hope you will still be able to get out and stay active, socially distant of course.  Run or walk wherever you are, at your pace, on your time!

'Take a Walk in My Shoes' Virtual 0.5K

As a part of your 5K or in addition to: Wear your favorite pumps, cowboy boots, and pride colors! There will be prizes for the best photo submitted!
