Race Report: Pride Run & Achilles Run

It was a double header in the last weekend in June!

On Saturday, June 25, CHRC Women and CHRC Men were out in full force at the 35th Front Runners New York LGBT Pride Run 5M! It was a hot and humid day but runners celebrated the diversity of the LGBT community by wearing rainbow tutus and color-coordinated shirts and shorts! Before the race started, a moment of silence was held to honor the shooting victims in Orlando, FL.
