The most fabulous race in Buffalo is back for another year – this time in Larkinville! Larkin Moves is an urban wellness festival happening morning, noon and night on May 30 in Larkin Square. The day will bring together movers and shakers in the local fitness community and offer a day of workouts and fun with vendors, food trucks and more! Make a splash with your Pride-themed running gear as we introduce this new route for 2018.
This race is for everyone! You only have to love races, want Buffalo to be a supportive and welcoming place for everybody, and have a colorful fashion sense. 


We’re taking over Larkin Square for the Gay 5K After-Party. Join us immediately after the race at the Filling Station to celebrate like the Olympian that you are with one complimentary beer and burger sliders (veggie options available), music and drag performances!
