LACE UP. BE PROUD. LET’S GO!
July 16 – August 8, 2021 ★ Wherever You Are ★ Whenever You Want ★
Building on the success of our pandemic-times virtual event last year, we’re once again required by today’s public health circumstances to host a virtual Pride Run & Walk again for 2021 – a run when you want, where you want – approach, open to all LGBTQ2S+ and their friends and allies no matter where they live.
2021 is our 17th Vancouver Pride Run & Walk, the first official event of the Vancouver Pride festivities. Hosted by Vancouver Frontrunners, we provide a safe and friendly environment for the LGBTQ2+ community and their friends to enjoy running and walking. During the pandemic we may be running separately, but we’re not all alone!
5K run or walk or the 10K run or walk registration is only $30/person with proceeds to our much-loved beneficiaries. You can fundraise for our charity beneficiaries without participating in the run/walk. Find out all the deadlines and details on our registration page.
Share the love!
What is Pride Run & Walk?
Pride Run & Walk is an annual event hosted by Vancouver Frontrunners, an all-volunteer, LGBTQ2+ running and walking club. VFR provides a safe and friendly environment for the LGBTQ2+ community and their friends to enjoy running and walking and other social activities.
Pride Run & Walk was born of a desire to give back to our community. Our fundraising objective is to raise funds for our community beneficiaries, Out in Schools and the LOUD Foundation’s Pride Youth Scholarship Fund.
Our other goal is to provide a vibrant and welcoming event for everyone attending to have fun! In years prior to the pandemic, the Vancouver Pride Society’s Picnic in the Park immediately follows Pride Run & Walk, bringing together members of the LGBTQ2+ community and their allies together for a fun, active, and inclusive day of celebration at Second Beach. In 2020, VPS re-imagined Pride celebrations; we’re looking forward to experiencing what’s in store for 2021!
If you’ve never been to a Pride Run before, browsing through our collection of photos will give you an idea of just how bright and colourful our big day is – and will be again! Should you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
