Front Runners has been an active running and multi-sport club for LGBT and LGBT-friendly athletes for more than 30 years. We are affiliated with New York Road Runners (NYRR) and run as a club in the many races sponsored by NYRR throughout the five boroughs, particularly in Central Park. We encourage runners of all abilities to join the club and experience the vast social, fitness, and training benefits of membership. The club's activities are run by the Board of Directors, elected every year as required by the Club's bylaws.
The centerpiece of the Front Runners New York experience is the Saturday morning fun run, which leaves from the Daniel Webster Statue in Central Park at 10 AM each week. We have runners of all levels come each week and run a variety of distances. We then congregate for bagels and coffee at Rutgers Church. Fun Runs also leave from Central Park on Wednesday nights at 7 PM. We have a robust speed training program that is free to members.
If all that was not enough, we have an active contingent in Brooklyn on Tuesday nights in Prospect Park and have a vibrant Multi-Sport training program. After more than 30 years, FRNY continues to be true to its original mission of providing a healthy athletic and social experience to the LGBT community. We are bigger and better than ever and hope you join us for a run soon!
