DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — June is National Pride Month, celebrating the LGBT community.
A Delray Beach running company is hosting their first "Pride 5K".
Steven Spitz owns Badass Running Company in Delray Beach.
Next month they will host a pride run that starts at the Delray Marketplace off Lyons Road.
Spitz said this will be one of the first in-person events they've had since the pandemic started.
"We are already getting people from Miami and Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, so we know this will be a great event," he said. "We haven't been able to since last March, so now we are talking a year and three months."
Julia Murphy with the Compass Community Center said this run helps them directly.
"We are about 50% down from our annual fundraising efforts so this year is really important," she said.
The pride run will be a 5K up Lyons Road.
If running isn't your thing, there are still ways for you to participate.
"It will be fun with a costume contest, or should I say a rainbow contest," Spitz said.
There is an option to also buy a spectator pass and enjoy the celebration.
Spitz said they hope they can fill the 250 spots available and could open more if they need to.
