The Big Gay 5K is back in a BIG way and we have gone virtual. Cue Gay Gasp! Runners will join together across the country to complete 5k virtual races while celebrating LGBTQ Pride in a positive and healthy way.
Athletes will have a choice of two routes in their city to run or walk and experience an interactive experience through the RaceJoy app. The swag will be flowing - All registrants will be treated to an exclusive neck gator designed to be THE centerpiece of any Pride ensemble for those carefully planned food and drank pick-ups.
And, everyone will receive the glitziest, gayest finisher medal you can dream up. Prepare your friends for an Insta glitter bomb! We'll also share a special live broadcast on June 27 featuring local drag personalities and providing the inspiration and fun you crave to complete the Big Gay 5K.
