What we're about

Lez Run was created for all members of the LGBTQ community, their friends and family with an emphasis on women and nonbinary folks. Our group welcomes all skill levels from beginner to pro! We meet once a week for a casual group run on Wednesdays, rain or shine, but within reason :). We also schedule weekend long runs, social events and post fun races so do check back for more information.

We aim to run local, out of state and out of the country races to represent our community and show off our skills! We will train together for upcoming races and help each other reach personal goals. Besides running, we also like to socialize and will meet for happy hours, pasta dinners and after run brunch. Our focus is to provide lgbtq athletes (newbies and vets) a safe, supportive and healthy outlet via running. So grab your running sneaks but leave your inhibitions at home and join us because running just got gayer!

Pride Month Kick-Off Run!

We are partnering with Philly Pride Run for this PRIDE MONTH kick-off event! We will meet at the William Way LGBT Center and then hit the road.

Distance options are 3 to 5 mile run, shoe demo by HOKA and raffle!

Hope you all can join us!

Group Run/Walk

Needs a location

Meet us in front of Lloyd Hall for a group run or group walk! We hope to provide an opportunity for all to mingle and socialize safely. Perhaps even make some new friends.

All skill levels and paces are welcome. Run distance will be 3+ miles. Walks will be 30+ mins. Too much for you? Come and we can work with your skill level so that you can run what you can AND still have the group with you.

Afterwards, we stick around and have coffee & breakfast at Cosmic Cafe.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest news! We have a lot of people come despite the lack of attendance on Meetup :)
