This is Anchorage Front Runner’s 22nd Pride Run!! One of the first Pride runs, in Anchorage, was in 2000 with the start of Anchorage Front Runners. The group still meets every Tuesday night at 6 pm down at Westchester Lagoon (15th and U Street). All LGBTQ+, friends, and family are welcome to join. The run became an official Pride event in 2006 and the Rainbow Run started in 2015. The run itself has grown and the community connection is as strong as ever.
