PRIDE RUN UPDATES 6/23
We ask that you please utilize rideshare services or carpooling if you can as this event has exploded with registrations in the last two weeks (much more than we expected for this venue). There is limited street parking in the area and by using a car service, you will avoid delays or parking issues. We are already working with the city to find an expanded venue to better accommodate our growing event next year! Thank you for understanding!
You ARE allowed to bring a disposable bottle of water or Camelbak with you. We ask that you please bring water with you on the course. Many runners will wear a Camelbak or similar, and we highly encourage it! We will have water available on the course, but bringing a bottle of water or two will help you stay as hydrated as possible.
#3. HEAT ADVISORY:
There is a serious heat advisory for Saturday. The key to feeling great on race day is to start hydrating the day and evening before. Really. Starting Friday morning, treat your body well and get in the zone. We challenge you to drink at least 5 bottles of water in the afternoon on Friday, YES, FIVE. Continue drinking hydrating as much as you can until a couple of hours before you run. The result will be a better feeling body when you’re on the course!

What to Wear
Be Colorful! We suggest wearing white or a bright color if you plan to participate in the Rainbow Color Throw!
As a Pride Run Participant, you can wear whatever you want, as long as you’re appropriately covered and your clothing is not dangerous to you or other guests. We suggest some awesome socks, team shirts, or a costume if you’re really feeling wild. You must wear shoes at all times.
There will NOT be lockers or a bag drop at this event. You may bring a small drawstring bag if you want to keep any items with you. Backpacks or duffel bags are NOT allowed.
All bags are subject to search by Police to ensure a safe environment for everyone.
Rainbow Throw Info
To make The Pride Run even more exciting and colorful, we’ve decided to include a dazzling color throw before the run starts! We suggest wearing white or a bright color if you’d like to look the most tye-dyed when the color wave happens! You’ll get your Pride Run shirt at the finish line.
Please note the Unicorn dust can stain clothes and car seats. Wear a shirt that isn’t important to you. Bring a change of clothes or towel before you sit in your car. Typical machine washing, with stain remover, removes the stains. Removal of excess powder is recommended before applying any water.
For those who wish to stay away from the Unicorn Color Dust, just stand back until it’s over 😉
