With running shorts, tank tops and some even with strollers, nearly 300 people took part in the 24th Annual Atlanta Pride Run & Walk on Saturday.
The route of the 3.1-mile running of the gays stayed inside Piedmont Park for the first time in recent years. Yet the hilly course proved challenging for the top speedsters. Cory Baumann again scored first place overall, notching a time of 16:09.36 and setting a pace nearly 40 seconds slower than his winning time in 2013. Samra Fleschner won the women's side with a time of 21:02.30, more than two minutes slower than last year's female winner.
Brad Slavens (18:23.07) and Sally Brooking (22:48.35) took the masters titles in their respective categories. View the full list of winners.
The event from Front Runners Atlanta this year benefited Joining Hearts, which returns to the park on July 19 for its charity poolside ab fest. More than 300 people laced up for the Pride Run last year.
