Pride in London is inviting supporters to sign up for its first ever 10K charity run taking place this June.
The run - which will take place entirely within Hyde Park - is open to anyone aged 15 or over who wants to run side by side with the LGBT+ community and start their Pride celebrations early. Individuals of all running abilities are encouraged to join - the course is suited to accommodate everyone from the most competitive runners through to those who just want some fun with family and friends.
The cost of entry is £18, reduced to £16 for UK Athletics members. All proceeds from the run will go towards the Pride in London Festival and Parade, which are kept as the UK’s largest free LGBT+ events thanks to the generosity of fundraisers. Pride in London is encouraging participants to raise what they can through GoldenGiving - whether it’s £5 or £500 everything will go towards helping to put on the biggest and most diverse Pride celebration in the UK.
Alex Talcer, Director of Fundraising for Pride in London, said: “If you’re like us and can’t wait for July, the Pride in London 10K is the ultimate pre-parade warm up! As well as being a great day out in Hyde Park running as part of and alongside the LGBT+ community, it’s also a really important part of our fundraising this year to keep Pride in London free and open for everyone to attend. To do this, we need to raise additional funds to ensure we’re putting on the safest and most accessible parade we can. We’re asking all our 10K participants to raise what they can - even £5 can go a long way to helping us put on one of London’s biggest and most diverse events.”
The Pride in London 10K takes place on Sunday 9th June 2019 at 09:30, with registration for participants opening at 08:30. Spectators are welcome to support runners from anywhere along the course.
