Add this share

With tank tops, headbands and even strollers, nearly 300 people laced up and jogged their way through the 25th Annual Atlanta Pride Run & Walk on Saturday.

The route of the 3.1-mile running of the gays stayed inside Piedmont Park again this year. Anthony Nardis (bottom image) took first place overall, notching a time of 18:02.69 and taking the crown from Cory Baumann, who won in 2014 and 2013. Nicole Dieckow (bottom image) won the women's side with a time of 22:13:38.

David Sarich (19:56.84) and Paula Johnson (22:59.73) took the masters titles in their respective categories. View the full list of winners.

The event from Front Runners Atlanta benefited Joining Hearts again this year. That non-profit fundraiser returns to the park on July 18 for its summer ab fest.
