What we're about

Lez Run was created for all members of the LGBTQ community, their friends and family. Our group welcomes all skill levels from beginner to pro! We meet once a week on Wednesday, rain or shine, but within reason :). We also occasionally 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. Please keep in mind we are not a dating site, but runners are hot so we understand if it happens. Our focus is to provide lgbtq athletes (newbies and vets) a safe, supportive and healthy outlet via running. Finally, a place where you can freely talk about loosing a toe nail, chafing cream, carbo loading, cold weather running, Garmin watches and that strange feeling you get when you miss a run. So grab your running sneaks but leave your inhibitions at home and join us because running just got gayer!
