What we're about

Front Runners New York (FRNY) is New York City’s LGBT running club, and this Meetup group aims to provide special support for lesbian, bisexual, and trans/GNC runners. All levels of running and walking are welcome!

FRNY was founded in 1979 and has grown to over 700 members annually. The club's mission is to provide encouragement and support to LGBT adults and their supporters who are interested in running and running-related activities.

FRNY holds events nearly every day of the week (see frny.org) involving running, swimming, and cycling, as well as social events throughout the year. Wednesdays and Saturdays are the club's social 'fun runs' that see a higher number of women looking to stay fit and make new friends.
