Rainbow Run Virtual 5k

Benefitting the Rainbow Rose Center, York County’s LGBTQIA+ Center

Join us for the first ever Rainbow Rose Center virtual Rainbow Run 5k!

In this virtual run, you have a whole month to complete your race and submit your results!

We will kick off the race on Coming Out Day - Monday, October 11, 2021. National Coming Out Day encourages LGBTQIA+ people to take pride in who they are and come out to friends and family as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community! It is a day of celebration and what better way to celebrate than running or walking a 5k?

You can participate by running or walking from October 11th through November 20th which is Transgender Day of Remembrance. On this day, we honor the names and lives of transgender people whose lives we lost in acts of transgender acts of violence with a candlelight vigil. We hope you will join us as we take the time to remember those whose lives were lost solely because of who they are. 

Races are more fun with friends, so invite your friends and family to join us on this great opportunity to get physically fit and support a great cause! The event is open to EVERYONE, regardless of age or ability.  Accommodations can be made for participants with a disability or special needs. Contact us today and we will be glad to help.

1.           Cotton race t-shirt
