East Bay Front Runners is a group of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgenders and friends who get together to run and
walk in scenic locations on the east side of San Francisco Bay every Saturday morning at 9:00. We follow our exercise
with brunch at one of several great local restaurants. Runners generally complete 3-7 miles and walkers complete 2-4 miles.
While the Saturday morning run/walk is our club’s staple, we also enjoy pot lucks, movie nights, museum tours, ballgames,
wine tastings, and occasional weekend getaways.
We welcome people of all athletic abilities, from casual walker to competitive runner, and everyone in between.
We take pride in being friendly and inviting, and we encourage you to come out and see for yourself.
Our running and walking events are non-competitive, self-paced, range from three to seven miles, and last 45 minutes to one hour.
All paths and trails are easily accessible to runners and walkers alike.
Our Mission and goal
Our mission is to promote the sports of running, walking and related athletic events for lesbians, gays, bisexuals,
transgenders and their supporters. Our goal is to have fun, promote healthy activity and to create community.
Front Runner's History
The Front Runner phenomenon started right here in our own back yard, when a small group of gay friends gathered for a
run near Golden Gate Park's south windmill in January 1974. What was to become San Francisco Frontrunners was born.
In 1980, Front Runners New York was launched, adopting the Front Runner name only after receiving permission from SFFR.
More clubs formed thereafter in rapid succession.
Today there are about 100 Front Runner clubs around the world representing the diversity of the LGBT community.
