Months of planning couldn’t do anything to keep the rain away, so Atlanta Pride Run & Walk brought its own rainbows to Piedmont Park on Sunday. The event stepped off with hundreds of festively dressed participants, dreary weather be damned.
“When it rains, look for rainbows,” said a rain-or-shine post on Saturday from Front Runners, the LGBTQ running group that organizes the event. “We intend to move forward with the in-person event as planned.”
Based on the smiles and colorful costumes in our photo gallery below, Atlanta Pride Run found its rainbows.
The annual 5K and its virtual cousin raised money for several LGBTQ non-profits. Final fundraising tallies are not yet available, but the run results are in. Here are the top finishers.
