Vancouver Pride Run & Walk 2022

LACE UP. BE PROUD. LET’S GO!
SATURDAY JULY 23rd ★ YOU ARE INVITED ★ FREE

2022 is our 18th annual Vancouver Pride Run & Walk! The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to scale back Pride Run from a full-on charity race with all the features local racers have come to expect, to a virtual event in 2020 and 2021. Direct and ripple effects of the past two years continues to impact PRW’s partner organizations and sponsors, preventing us from hosting the race experience we are known for, this year.

In 2023 we’ll be back, bigger and brighter than ever, with a full-on race experience for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, their friends and allies.

This year you are invited to join the Vancouver Frontrunners, Canada’s longest-running 2SLGBTQIA+ running & walking group, on our 18th annual Pride Run & Walk! Frontrunners have been pounding the Stanley Park seawall and trails for 39 years! Here’s the details:

  1. Save the date! Vancouver Pride Run & Walk 2022 is Saturday, July 23 at 9:00 am.
  2. Meet at the Vancouver Frontrunners run start at Brockton Oval Fieldhouse. Getting there: a 12-minute walk from the Stanley Park Bus Loop off Pipeline Road or a 15-minute walk from the bus stop at West Georgia and Gilford. There are bike racks at the Fieldhouse, and plenty of paid ($$) parking is available too.
  3. Come prepared for your preference of seawall routes: a 5km walk or run, or a 10km run.
  4. The run is free this year, but we’d be honoured if Pride Run & Walk 2022 serves as a catalyst in you making a direct donation to one of our two long-time 2SLGBTQIA+ youth program charities:

Out In Schools
Out In Schools is BC’s award-winning 2SLGBTQIA+ education program. They use film and facilitated group discussion to engage youth in building safer, more inclusive communities – donate here.

LOUD Foundation Scholarships
The LOUD Foundation invests in future leaders of the Canadian 2SLGBTQ+ community through the award of youth student scholarships – donate here.
