Welcome to the home of Pride Run & Walk 2017, the first official event of the Vancouver Pride Festivities. Here at Vancouver Frontrunners, we’re incredibly excited for a great event ahead of us.
Every year, Pride Run & Walk continues to grow bigger and brighter and we look forward to outdoing ourselves once again. We hope you will find all the information you need on this site, and if you’ve never been to a Pride Run before, then be sure to browse through our collection of photos from previous events to get an idea of just how bright and colourful our big day is!
What is Pride Run & Walk?
Pride Run & Walk is an annual event hosted by the Vancouver Frontrunners, a local LGBTQ+ running and walking club. Pride Run & Walk was born out of the notion of wanting to give back to our community. The main goal is to raise funds to go directly to our community beneficiaries which are Out in Schools and the LOUD Foundation’s Scholarships. Our second goal is to have fun! This is an event put on by a local community club and a team of volunteers that benefits the community.
For the past few years, we have joined forces with the Vancouver Pride Society in an effort to putting on a bigger event while streamlining costs and efforts. The cheaper it is to host the event, the more money we can donate. Following Pride Run is Sports Day. This is a new theme for the day with the goal of bringing in members of other LGBTQ+ sports leagues in Vancouver and the lower mainland.
We’re pretty excited for new and exciting changes and we strive to continuously outperform ourselves year over year.
