Date, Time, and Location

For the safety of participants and supporters, the New Orleans Pride Run+Walk will be a virtual event. As a result it can be anywhere you want it to be, whenever you want it to be. We encourage your participation during the traditional Labor Day weekend timeframe (September 4-7, 2020), but that is totally up to you! Just remember, while participating please follow all recommended social distancing guidelines for your region.

Race Premiums

Race registration includes a race bib, event branded buff, and a commemorative magnet finisher medal. Medal and buff designs will be revealed in the official Facebook event. Your registration also supports the PFLAG New Orleans Scholarship Program.

Packet Pickup

Each participant will be required to provide an accurate mailing address upon registration, and packets including the number, buff, and medal will be mailed to participants in late August. In order to guarantee shipping in time for the virtual race weekend, participants must register by August 5, 2020. Any registrations received after this deadline cannot guarantee shipment and receipt of participant's race number, premium item, and finisher medal prior to Labor Day weekend.

Results and Awards

As a virtual event focused on community, representation, and support for the PFLAG New Orleans Scholarship Program, there will be no individual awards or official scoring. We are working with sponsors and partners to provide contests and prizes for participants who share their New Orleans Pride Run+Walk experience on social media using the official hashtags #NOLAPrideRun and #runNOLA. Read participant emails as event approaches for details!

Have your team name added to the drop down list by emailing us at Members of the Largest Team will receive a prize, to be announced at a later date.


Everyone is welcome to register and join the fun! This event welcomes members, family, friends, and allies of the LGBTQ+ community to celebrate diversity in the Crescent City. You don't need to be a fast runner to show your support, as the run/walk can be done however quick or leisurely you want.

The New Orleans Pride Run+Walk is owned and produced by the New Orleans Track Club, a not-for-profit organization and a member of the Road Runners Club of America and USA Track & Field. For more information contact the NOTC via email at or phone 504-304-2326.

Race Policies


All New Orleans Track Club race registration fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable under all circumstances, including, but not limited to, cancellation of the event or of your participation, or change in the date, nature, or format of the event. An event may be canceled or changed due to severe weather or other factors that threaten the safety of participants, staff, or volunteers. Race bibs cannot be transferred to another participant.


The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, the New Orleans Track Club encourages a headphone-free environment during the running of this race.


At our races, NOTC demonstrates our commitment to an inclusive athletic experience by welcoming race participants, volunteers and guests to use:

  • Single-occupancy gender-neutral (unisex) facilities; and
  • Use of multiple-occupant, gender-neutral restroom facilities with lockable single occupant stalls.


The New Orleans Track Club strongly recommends against the participation of baby strollers/joggers in road races. The reason for this recommendation is that the inclusion of strollers in races increases the potential for injury to race participants and children.

The NOTC has no objection to and does not discourage the safe and prudent use of strollers or baby joggers in individual training situations. If allowed in a race, stroller or baby joggers or similar devices should be started in the back of the runners and walkers.


Dogs should not be brought to this event for the safety of all participants and volunteers.
