Annual CommUNITY Rainbow Run

CommunityRainbowRun_2023Medals.jpeg

The annual CommUNITY Rainbow Run, now in its 8th year, is a celebration of how following the Pulse tragedy, our community came together in love and how we continue to be Orlando United. At the CommUNITY Rainbow Run, which this year is Saturday, June 8, 2024, we unite to honor the 49 angels, their families, the survivors, first responders and all those impacted.   

The CommUNITY Rainbow Run is moving from Wadeview Park to Orlando City Hall Plaza, conveniently located at 400 South Orange Avenue in downtown Orlando. The new location means a larger space for the CommUNITY Festival and offers a unique race day experience for everyone, with the Kids Fun Run taking place on Seneff Arts Plaza in front of the Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts.
