About This Activity

We are proud to offer the second annual Colorado Springs Big Gay 5K in partnership with PrideFest. The Big Gay 5K will take place at 10:00am Sunday July 2oth, one hour before the Pride Parade. The race will follow the parade route, starting and ending in America the Beautiful Park. We will run east on Colorado Avenue, go north on Tejon Street, turn around just before Cache La Poudre St and head back to American the Beautiful Park to watch the Pride Parade and join the PrideFest activities!

This race is for everyone; walkers, runners, really fast runners, kids, adults, families, gay, and straight. Come to run. Come to have fun. Come to support. Come to PRIDE! We will have prizes for the fastest runner, best costume, most pride and more!
