Rainbow Run/Walk 5K

OB_rainbowrun_FB-01.jpg

Out Boulder County would like to announce our Rainbow Run/Walk 5K! With a new route, fun costume contest, and more, we’re looking to make this the best 5K Boulder Pridefest has ever seen!

The Rainbow Run/Walk 5K will raise funds that support the programs and work of Out Boulder County. Our mission is to educate, advocate and provide services, programs, and support for Boulder County’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer communities.

Folks from all backgrounds and identities are welcome to participate! Come join us, have fun, meet community, and help us celebrate Pride in Boulder County!

We couldn’t make the Rainbow Run/Walk 5K happen without the amazing support of our Community Sponsors. Thank you for all you do!
