Front Runners & Walkers San Diego offers you an opportunity to be a proud sponsor of the 2020 Pride 5K Run & Walk– a highlight of the annual Pride Week festivities. This event has had dramatic growth over the past decade with over 1,400 runners and walkers in 2019. The run takes place along the parade route just before the Pride Parade, and attracts over 175,000 spectators.
The Pride 5K Race is run on a certified course and welcomes a diverse field of serious and recreational runners and walkers from San Diego County and beyond. Funds raised by the Pride 5K support vital life-saving programs for teens facing homelessness at the LGBT Youth Housing Center, special San Diego Pride Community Grants, and Front Runners community outreach efforts promoting fitness, good health, inclusiveness, self esteem and positive role models. In 2019, the generosity of sponsors allowed Front Runners and Walkers to donate $20,000 to our charity partners. Please help us reach our goal to surpass this amount in 2020! This year, we expect to host the largest event to date with a goal of over 1,500 participants. If you want an excellent opportunity for you and your company to be seen and appreciated by our participants, friends, family, race spectators and parade attendees, sign up today!
