Pride Run 5K
Lace Up, Come Out,
Join us for Lexington's inaugural Pride Run 5K, starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 12 at The Club at Spindletop Hall. Run, walk, skip, or stroll in this 3.1-mile chip-timed race on the scenic Legacy Trail. The event will feature overall and age-group awards, commemorative medals and T-shirts (while supplies last), a 1-mile fun walk, entertainment at the finish line, food and drinks, local vendors, sponsors, and non-profit tents/tables handing out swag and resources. There's even an optional color-splash/run station!
This event is presented by the FCPS LGBTQ Advisory Committee in partnership with Lexington Fairness. Proceeds will help support LGBTQ students, families, and allies by providing much-needed resources, programming, Gay-Straight Alliance development and maintenance, activities, and student/teacher/administrator training throughout our schools. Visit the Pride Run website for more details, including registration.
