Virtual 10K Pride Run

Mon June 21 - Mon June 28 Offutt A F B, NE 68113 US


Offutt AFB - Virtual Only
Offutt A F B, NE US 68113


An Offutt: Pride in All Who Serve 2021 Event in recognition of LGBT+ Pride Month, June 2021. 

In celebration of ten years since the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell - a bill that prohibited military service for out lesbian, gay, and bisexual members - it’s time for a race (and no, not a drag race). For the first time ever at Offutt AFB, we are throwing a sickening and gag-worthy VIRTUAL 10K  PRIDE RUN, hunty! One kilometer for every year that LGB members have been out and proud in our Armed Forces without fear of discharge or administrative action.

Why running, you may ask? To demonstrate how fierce, fit, and fabulous our LGBT+ and Ally communities are here at Offutt. Nothing says LGBT+ Pride like throwing on your heels (heels optional), poppin’ on your booty shorts (or other suitable gear), and strutting or running your way 6.21 miles in any direction your heart takes you (or maybe you prefer lots of different directions... who are we to judge).

The first 100 individuals to submit their results documenting their 10K will receive an exclusive original LGBT+/Ally patch at no cost, and all participants will receive the appreciation of the LGBT+ community, either for repping your LGBT+ Pride or repping your Ally Awesomeness!


Why a 10K? The 10 Kilometers are significant because they represent the 10 years since the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy, a regulation that prohibited Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual (LGB) service members from openly disclosing their sexuality. Since the execution of the repeal of DADT in 2011, the Department of Defense has welcomed Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual members across the ranks and devoted resources to undoing the vilification of sex/gender/sexuality minorities. The race is far from over though, as Trans* members regained the right to serve openly just this year, in January of 2021. By raising awareness of the issues facing the LGBT+ community, as well as their diverse and unique contributions, we can continue moving towards the military of the future and expanding what it means to serve with integrity and excellence.

Results may be tracked via common fitness apps or devices, or simply by documenting results on paper.

7)      Participants must virtually sign the waiver form provided on the registration site and consult with a physician in the event they have medical conditions that may preclude their full participation in the event. While not typically a high-risk activity, participation in physical fitness is not without potential for injury.
