DC Front Runners, Pacers Organize Virtual 5K to Celebrate Pride Month

The DC Front Runners and Pacers are partnering to hold a virtual 5K race to celebrate Pride Month while raising funds for our Pride Run 5K charities. Registration is now open for the Run for Love, which will take place June 13-21.

Every June, we come together as a community to celebrate Pride and race together. This June, we’re racing “together” a bit differently. It’s times like these where we show our resiliency as a community.

Registration cost $30, and it includes a customizable t-shirt and bib, a sticker, a Pacers discount, and a donation to the Pride Run 5K and the charities it supports. Many of these charities — Casa Ruby, the Wanda Alston Foundation, Teens Run DC, Team DC Scholarship Fund, The Blade Foundation, and Ainsley’s Angels — need our help right now amid the pandemic. A free registration that does not include swag or a donation is available.

The t-shirts and bib are black and white, and participants are encouraged to personalize them with color.

Register by May 29 to ensure you have a t-shirt by June 13. Pacers will offer a socially distanced packet pickup before the virtual 5K begins.

Participants can submit as many results as they would like, and only the fastest will be counted.

Register now at www.runforlovedc.com. If you have any questions, contact coordinator@dcfrontrunners.org.

The Run for Love does not replace the Pride Run 5K rescheduled for October 10, 2020. If you have not signed up for the Pride Run 5K, you can register now at dcfrpriderun.com.
