Craig Ramsey

We are thrilled to have host, author, and wellness expert (and PSFR&W member!) Craig Ramsay join us once again as Ambassador for the Pride Run & Walk. Craig will be giving updates and motivational tips on social media leading up to the event, and welcome participants as emcee on race day!


The run and walk takes place in the beautiful and historic neighborhood of Old Las Palmas, once a citrus grove, and later home to many Hollywood celebrities.

The beautiful, mostly flat, out-and-back course is on paved streets. There will be volunteers on the course to cheer you on and keep you moving in the right direction.

Here's the course map.


If you can't be here in person, sign up for our virtual event. Complete a 5K anytime between November 4th and 6th and share your photos with us on social media. All virtual participants are mailed a t-shirt.

We will make every effort to inform all participants of any changes that affect packet pickup and/or race day as soon as they are known. Our main concern is the health and safety of our community.
