We are very proud to sponsor the Dublin Pride Run, organised by the Dublin Front Runners, Dublin’s LGBTQI+ running club and the first major event of the Dublin Pride calendar and the biggest LGBTQI+ sporting event in the country.

Championing inclusivity and self-expression in an open, friendly, safe space, the race is a great opportunity to connect with others in the LGBTQI+ community. Dublin Pride Run has raised over €186,000 for LGBTQ+ charities to date since the first 5k Run 12 years ago.

This year’s run will take place on Friday 21 June in the Phoenix Park and will raise funds for the important work of the following charities:

  • ShoutOut, which delivers educational programmes in schools and workplaces
  • Champions Programme – LGBT Ireland, providing training and resources to make health, care and support services for older people LGBTQI+ friendly.
  • Sanctuary Runners, a solidarity-through-sport initiative which aims to bring together asylum seekers, refugees, migrants and all Irish residents.

Led by our Alliance committee, our staff are also lacing up our running shoes to take part in the Run’s Couch to 5k free guided training programme, designed for beginners. To sign up for the Run or for Couch to 5k, click here.
