Celebrate Pride Month By Participating in Front Runners New York's Annual Pride Run!
On June 26, 2010, New York Road Runners and Front Runners team up to produce the 29th Annual Front Runners New York Lesbian & Gay Pride Run, a five-mile run in Central Park. This is a great way to celebrate Pride Weekend with some fresh air in Central Park and to be a part of a fun and exciting day. More than 5,000 women and men of all levels and ages are expected to be trotting the course and will share in pre- and post-race entertainment. As the premiere athletic event of Pride Weekend, the Pride run is an inclusive event celebrating health, fitness and community. You can enjoy music, get exercise, meet new friends and perhaps win some great raffle prizes. Last year's prizes included a trip to Vienna, round-trip domestic flights through Continental and Equinox gym memberships. The race starts at 9:00 am with a festival before and after the run. All proceeds benefit charity. Sign up today! For more information about the race and to register, click on the following link: http://nyrr.org/races/2010/r0626x00.asp
