What we're about

Front Runners & Walkers is San Diego’s LGBT running club for more than 40 years. Whatever your athletic ability, orientation, and gender identity, there’s a place for you with Front Runners and Walkers. All paces and mileage are welcome. Join us! Must be over 18 years old.

We meet Saturday mornings at 8 AM and Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6 PM at the big fig tree near Sixth and Laurel in Balboa Park. Saturday routes include a 3-4 mile walk or run through Balboa Park or 4-6 miles along the waterfront. Or always feel free to improvise the routes to add or subtract miles to accommodate a 45 minute run/walk. All routes begin and end at our meeting spot.

Saturdays we have 40-50 members of all abilities. Weekdays average 10-20 members, mainly runners. Sundays are long run days 60-75 minutes and are at different areas around the county. Sunday info is posted on our facebook page.

After the Saturday run/walk we reconvene at Big City Bagels in Hillcrest for breakfast. Tuesday evenings a group often goes out for a post-run dinner.

If an event is happening at our usual meeting spot, we have an alternative location at the War Memorial at the north end of the zoo parking lot on Park Ave.

Come join us for a few runs, and if you like it, please become a member https://www.frwsd.org/membership/ .
