This fun run/walk is a celebration of the LGBT+ community, supporters, and athletes of all shapes and sizes. Simply put, if you love the playful and cheery community, show your support and enjoy the day with us! A portion of proceeds will go to a local non-profit charity.

**Anyone who signs up Thursday, 9/13 after 10:15am will not be guaranteed a shirt on race day. However, we are ordering more, and will fulfill the shirt by mail after the race.**

Registered participants will receive FREE race pictures, a dry-fit T-shirt, race bling, and goodie bag. Everyone will receive an amazing race medal! Rain or shine, we will see you there. This is a "fun" run and will not be professionally timed.
