In 1996 three gay triathletes founded The Pride and Remembrance Run, an annual 5K fundraising run/ 3K walk coinciding with Toronto’s Pride Week. It was dedicated to partnering the themes of pride and remembrance with community celebration and personal achievement.

Everyone has their own reason for participating in the Run. Some run for the athletic challenge, others to raise funds for charity… there are also many people participate to honour the memory of someone who has touched their lives.

The Pride and Remembrance Run has become an annual tradition promoting and fostering community spirit, goodwill, volunteerism and sportsmanship in the LGBTQ+ community.

With over 1,600 participants, this event is the largest of its kind in Canada and is one of the most popular running events in the GTA. It’s also one of the largest fundraising events during Pride week. Celebrities, political leaders and people like you join together to support charities in need. 

It’s easy to get involved in this year’s Run. Register for the race as an individual, or as a team. Once registered, our pledge system makes it easy to reach out to your friends and family for their support.
