Run & Walk with Pride 2023 @ Seward Park
June 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Since its beginning in 1983, the mission of RWWP has been to provide an event in which LGBTQIA+ athletes could compete, while also serving as a fundraiser for local LGBTQIA+ non-profit organizations. This year’s beneficiary will be Peer Seattle. Over the past four decades, RWWP has raised and donated over $170,000 to different organizations operating in the state of Washington.
While Seattle Frontrunners is proud to be able to give back to the community, we are even more proud of the people who share in the belief that we all deserve to actively pursue happy and healthy lives. After celebrating our 40th year in 2022, we look forward to continuing to build community and truly hope that you will join us in the march forward.

Seward Park in Seattle, Washington
The start/finish area will be by the pottery studio, which is also near a sandy swimming area. The course is the perimeter of the park—one lap for 4K, two laps for 8K. Instead of going through the parking lot at the south end of the park, participants should stay on the sidewalk to the left (south); with this portion near the end of the loop rather than the beginning, we should have participants spaced out enough that this will not be too crowded. Taking that route, along with eliminating the hill in the center of the park (previously in the 10K), will minimize the area where participants must share the road with motorized vehicles. Near the end of the clockwise loop, runners and walkers will have to cross the driveway into the park. We will have course marshals in safety vests monitoring traffic and guiding participants, as well as arrow signs anywhere there could be confusion. Scroll to the bottom of this pace for a detailed map of the area.
Both distances will have a 1 hr 45 min course limit, counted from 9am. In the past we discouraged walkers from joining the 10K due to this limit, but the new 8K distance (5 miles) can be completed within the limit if a 21 minute per mile pace is maintained, which should be manageable for most walkers.
