Palm Springs Pride Run & Walk

Event Details

The Palm Springs Pride 5K Run & Walk is on Saturday, November 4, 2023 through the beautiful Old Las Palmas neighborhood.

The race is proudly hosted by Palm Springs Front Runners & Walkers, a local chapter of International Frontrunners, an informal network of LGBTQ running groups around the world.


If you can't be here in person, you can participate virtually! Complete a 5K run or walk anytime between November 3-5, and share your photos on social media with #pspriderun. Due to mailing costs, we are unable to send t-shirts or medals to virtual participants.


A timing chip is attached to your race bib, so wear it throughout the race, keeping it visible and unobstructed.

Results are emailed shortly after the race and updated on our website. The top male, female, and non-binary finishers get an award. We also offer age group medals for top finishers in the following categories: Under 15, 16-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80+.
