Welcome to London Frontrunners, an inclusive running club for lesbians, gay & bisexual men & women, trans* people, and gay-friendly people who love running.
Our members range from recreational joggers to competitive road racers and marathon runners. Regardless of your level of fitness, your pace or you preferred distance you will find members to run and train with. We have regular runs four times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays) in two of London’s most beautiful parks (Regent’s Park and Hyde Park) and along the South Bank. The distances normally range from 2 to 6 miles and we have between 20 to 40 runners at each session.
But, don’t worry London Frontrunners isn’t all about running. We have drinks or brunch after the runs in pubs or breakfast places near the changing facilities. We also have regular social events, such as first drinks of the month, but our members have also organised skiing trips, wine tasting sessions and weekends in the countryside.
This site provides all of the introductory information about our club and explains all our activities. For the most up-to-date information, please see our calendar. Whether you are running for fun, competition, fitness, or just want to get to know other runners, we hope that can join us.
We look forward to seeing you on one of our runs soon.
The object of the Club is to encourage and promote running among lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and trans* people regardless of race, religion, sex, age or physical ability. In pursuit of this object the club will promote equal opportunities.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in running who supports the objects of the Club on payment of the annual subscription fee.
Who would have thought that a small group of like-minded individuals who gathered for a run on a Saturday morning in Hyde Park could develop into a hugely successful gay and lesbian running club with over 350 members in 2012.
London Frontrunners is part of a world-wide network of gay and lesbian “Frontrunners” running and walking clubs. The name “Frontrunners” was inspired by Patricia Nell Warren’s novel The Front Runner, a story about the relationship between an ex-Marine track coach and his Olympic athlete training for the 1976 Olympic Games.
An increasing number of London Frontrunners are successfully competing in races internationally, in the U.K and around London. Our club has built up a strong reputation amongst the running community in the South of England, in road racing, cross country events and over the fells. London Frontrunners also organises its own annual 10 kilometre race, The Pride 10k.
