Thursday May 11, we turn Stockholm into a colourful stage with focus on joy, celebration and community. It’s time for this year’s Run for Pride.
The Run for Pride race has four price categories in the distances 5 km and 10 km respectively (gold and silver in each category).
● Best costume (gold only – the winner takes it all)
This year’s timetable:
The event area opens with a warm-up by conference host John Valencia (@pappapappadotter) and artist performance by Frans Jepsson Wall.
Start for Pets Run where both you and your dog are welcome to run (or walk) 5 km.
At 5.30 p.m
The starting shot goes for both the 5- and 10-kilometer race – you choose which distance you run regardless of what you signed up for – and it’s just as well to walk. Just remember that you have to be at the finish line no later than 7 p.m
At 7 p.m
The winners will be presented!
Remember – JOY GOES BEFORE ACHIEVEMENT.
SEK 100 of each ticket sold goes to The Rainbow Fund, a foundation whose goal is to create a world where all people have the same basic rights — regardless sexual orientation, gender identity and expression.

Frans is this year’s Run for Pride artist and performing at the event area behind Sjöhistoriska Museum at Djurgården in Stockholm May 11th. Frans won the Swedish Melodifestivalen 2016 and was placed in fifth place for Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest the same year.
– For me it feels important to participate in this type of event to draw attention to the fact that it is still not accepted in many places in the world to be an openly LGBTQ-person. By participating in the race, I contribute to spreading awareness to more people, despite my lack of fitness, says Frans.
