Pride Run 2018
Pride Run 2018 marks the 37th running of the Los Angeles Frontrunners Pride Run. Come join us in celebrating 37 years of running, fitness, friendship, and family. Our race is 100% volunteer organized. Each year LAFR makes a substantial contribution to local charities with the proceeds of the Pride Run.
Location & Date
Pride Run 2018 will be on Saturday, June 9, in Griffith Park (same location as 2017). The start/finish area for Pride Run 2018 is the Crystal Springs Picnic Area in Griffith Park. The 5K is one loop around the golf course, the 10K is two loops around the golf course. The course is trail/packed dirt and flat.
5K, 10K, and Ultra Pride
Pride Run 2018 features our traditional 5K and 10K Race, and our Kids Race. Back this year is the Ultra Pride Run, where runners run both the 5K and 10K and the lowest cumulative time is the winner. The 5K Run will start at 7:30 a.m. and the 10K starts at 8:45 a.m., following the Kids Race around 8:30 a.m.
Beneficiaries & Sponsorship
We have four beneficiaries for Pride Run 2018: The Carl Maravilla Scholarship through Club Rotario de Latinos Unidos, My Friend's Place, Kitten Rescue & Angel City Pit Bulls. 100% of donations go to our beneficiaries. If you would like to donate or are interested in sponsorship, please click HERE
Bring Your Old Medals!
We will be collecting medals to donate to Medals4Mettle. Medals4Mettle attaches their branded ribbons to donated finishers’ medals (marathons, half marathons and triathlons) and awards them to children and adults for the mettle and courage they demonstrate battling cancer, chronic illness, trauma and other life challenges. Please note: while Medals4Mettle only accepts half/full/tri medals, feel free to bring medals from other distances. We will sort them and send the appropriate medals to Medals4Mettle and recycle the rest. To visit their website, please click HERE
Free Kids Race
The Kids Race will start at approximately 8:30 a.m. (between the 5K & 10K) and is free. Every child will receive a race number, medal, and goodie bag.
