12 years and counting...

EBFRW's 12th Annual Pride Run and Walk is scheduled for Oct. 8th, 2016 at 9AM, and we want you to be a part of it!

Join us at the recently renovated and beautiful Lake Merritt in downtown Oakland for a 10K run, 5K run, or 5K walk.

Stay afterwards and take in the community spirit and camaraderie of the East Bay's oldest pride race.

Every registered participant will receive a pair of rainbow-colored EBFRW running socks. Don't miss out!
