As part of Chicago’s Gay and Lesbian Pride Week activities since 1982, Proud To Run is an annual 10K run and 5K run/walk along the lakefront, focused on celebrating pride in and raising funds to support the greater Chicago area LGBTQ community. In 2017 we had a record turnout of more than 2,000 registrants. Overall, more than 2,200 people participated in this year’s event by running, walking, volunteering and sponsoring.

The Proud To Run 10K run and 5K run/walk is organized by an all volunteer, community based board of directors and is presented in association with Frontrunner/Frontwalkers Chicago.

Race day is Saturday, June 23rd starting at 8:04 am, at Montrose Harbor.

From packet pick up pre-race to water station helpers during the race to clean up crew post race; we need your help! Register to volunteer by sending an email
