JUNE 29, 2019

Saturday, June 29, 2019 will mark the 38th running of the Front Runners New York (FRNY) LGBT Pride Run.  Since the inaugural race in 1982, the LGBT Pride Run has grown to become the largest LGBT sporting event in NYC and one of the largest  worldwide.  This event, organized by FRNY in collaboration with New York Road Runners, is an official qualifier for the TCS New York City Marathon and donates a portion of proceeds to a charity beneficiary.

Registration for the 2019 Front Runners New York LBGT Pride Run is expected to open in February 2019. Stay tuned to our social media sites for updates.
