The Winnipeg FrontRunners Pride Run is a fun, non-competitive running or walking event open to all members of the LGBTTQ* community and their supporters. Our fourth annual event takes place at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, June 2nd, 2018. The run starts and ends at the Forks festival site in the heart of Winnipeg. This year we're excited to offer a 3K walking route in addition to our 5K and 10K options!
The theme for our Pride Run is Pride Moves. We welcome runners and walkers of all experience levels. Just bring your most colourful running or walking gear and your positive, Pride-filled energy. We’ll give you a free t-shirt, too!
This year we’re fundraising for Reaching Out Winnipeg (ROW) a local organization that helps resettle LGBT refugees to Canada. They face serious persecution and intense discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in countries around the world. Click on this link to learn more on their activities.
Here's more info from Race Roster on how to fundraise for ROW through their site.

The Pride Run will begin and finish at the Forks Festival grounds. All routes starts from the Forks Festival stage, travel past and around the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, cross the Esplanade Riel and continue through scenic parks in Saint Boniface before turning back to the Forks Finish line along the Provencher Bridge. The 10K route travels a bit further along the Red River past Whittier Park before turning back and heading to the finish line.
CAUTION: The course is a mixture of dirt, gravel, grass, and concrete trails. There are surface tree roots along the path and some sections require participants to proceed single file. Please be careful and respectful of others.
There is ample parking at the Forks parkade and local surface lots.
