Pride Run & Walk 2020

LACE UP. BE PROUD. LET’S GO!
July 2020 ★ Wherever You Are ★ Whenever You Want

PRW 2020 – the 15th annual – this year is a virtual event but our charity beneficiaries are just as real and in need as ever. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year’s PRW will be a virtual event, run or walk when you want, where you want, so quite literally the entire planet is invited to run and walk with us all July!

Details and registration information can be found at the Pride Run & Walk site.

Frontrunners Being Awesome in 2019!

Taking a look back at the year that has been, our 36th year, Frontrunners were busier than ever being completely awesome!

Athletics

In between our many social activities we still managed to find some time to run this year. In addition to our weekly rain or shine Saturday or Wednesday runs, Frontrunners had a blast participating in:

  • ‘First Half’ Half Marathon
  • St. Patrick’s Day 5K
  • Sun Run
  • BMO Vancouver Marathon
  • Scotia Half + 5K
  • Pride Run & Walk, hosted by Frontrunners! Almost 400 came out to run and walk, cheered on by 60 volunteers and hundreds of family and allies in glorious weather! See you in 2020!
  • Eastside 10K
  • Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon
  • Whistler 50 Mile Relay & Ultra

Pride Run & Walk is here and we at the Vancouver Frontrunners are gearing up for another fantastic year as we celebrate our 15th annual event! Last year was a raging success having raised over $17,200 for LGBTQ charities and we hope you can join us on July 21st at Second Beach Park for another colourful, fun-filled day.

Raising Money for LGBTQ Non-Profit Organizations

Vancouver Frontrunners created this special event, many years ago, as a means to raise money and give back to the  LGBTQ community that has given us so much. Over the years we’ve donated to many different charities exceeding over $100,000 since the event’s inception.

Every year we strive to raise and donate more than last and we hope 2019 will be no exception. 100% of our profits go directly to a charity, but we know we can do better. You can choose to donate money during the registration process and if that’s not enough, why not seek pledges from family and friends?
