Celebrate Pride In Charleston Participating In This Virtual 5K Run

Chase the Rainbow and celebrate Pride with this 5K Virtual Run.

It’s time to celebrate Pride month! After a year of no in-person celebrations due to covid, it’s time to step outside and put on your running shoes. If you love to work out or you’re just a fan of outdoor activities, you’ll definitely enjoy the event the Charleston Pride Organization is throwing this year.

We’re talking about the “Chase the Rainbow” Charleston Pride Virtual Run! This is a 5-kilometer virtual race you can run or walk to raise money for the organization. It’s not too late to take part of it, you have until the last day of June to finish your race. Prizes will be won by the most creative runners.

You have to register on the Charleston Pride website and get your friends, family, and loved ones to sponsor your run.

There are also many exciting prizes you can win! There are two ways you can take home one of them: share a photo on your social media wearing your best Pride gear or share a photo of you or your electronic tracking device during the run. Don’t forget to tag Charleston Pride and use the hashtag #ChPrideRainbowRun. If you’re not into uploading them to your Insta, send them directly to the organization at pride-events@charlestonpride.org.

The price of registering for the race is $10 and $30 to receive a custom t-shirt. We cannot wait to see your photos with your friends, team, family, and dogs!
