The Palm Springs Pride 5K Run & Walk will be in-person AND virtual for 2021! The run and walk takes place in the beautiful and historic neighborhood of Old Las Palmas, once a citrus grove, and later home to many Hollywood celebrities. The race is proudly hosted by Palm Springs Front Runners & Walkers, a local chapter of International Frontrunners, an informal network of LGBTQ running groups around the world.
Proceeds from the Palm Springs Pride 5K Run & Walk benefit The LGBTQ Community Center of The Desert ("The Center"), and The Transgender Health and Wellness Center.
The Palm Springs Pride 5K Run & Walk is part of a weekend of activities celebrating Greater Palm Springs Pride! For a full list of weekend events and activities go to pspride.org.
