Pride parade through urban orienteering!
Date and time28.6 – 4.7.2021
We want Pride to be seen and heard, even if the parade will not be held this year due to the safety restrictions related to COVID-19. The Pride orienteering course is designed and implemented by the City of Helsinki Sports Services. It consists of a dozen exercises which encourage visitors to learn about the themes of this year’s Pride and its history while also actively moving from one place to another – in their own way and with people close to them. The exercises along the course are inspiring, challenging and rewarding. You can complete the course by walking or running or on a city bike or other public transport. It can also be done in parts. The course is built along the usual route of the Pride parade. It supports community spirit and physical activity through exercises that can be completed independently. Due to the pandemic, the activities in summer 2021 work on a self-service basis: you can complete the exercises at the select control points safely and with the surroundings taken into consideration. Everyone can complete the route of the classic Helsinki Pride parade safely at their own pace.
