This past Saturday, October 12, 2013, EBFRW ran its 9th Annual Pride Run! The organizers, sponsors and participants made the pride run a resounding success! We had approximately 128 finishers from all over the Bay Area and even one runner from Dallas! We had 60 finishers in the 5k run with the winner crossing the finish line in 19:23. Our 5k walk saw 25 finishers with the lead walker completing the course in a nice time of 43:41. Our 10k leader completed the double-loop course in a very respectable 40:13.

Before the race at 9:00a.m., the Oakland East Bay Gay Men’s Chorus sang the National Anthem as they have done the past 3 years. Upon completion of the race, participants were treated to wonderful rainbow-colored finisher’s ribbons and a nice spread of goodies from our sponsors and race organizers and, of course, EBFRW’s now famous rainbow-colored running socks! The race was a lot of fun, the weather was great and I hope everyone had a wonderful time. Mark your calendars for the 10th Annual Pride Run to be held in October 2014!
