ABOUT US

DC Front Runners is a running, walking, and social club for LGBTQ+ people and their friends in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. We are open to all people regardless of race, pace, age, gender, sexual orientation, or athletic ability. Our group is very diverse with respect to speed, distance, and intensity, and we encourage and support all who participate. While membership is encouraged, you do not have to join to give us a try! 


Our club has over 400 active members. In addition to our group runs and walks, we sponsor many social events so you can make new friends and join other members for dinner, happy hour, or other activities.

OUR HISTORY

Founded by a small group of local gay runners in 1981, the DC Front Runners has become a thriving and integral part of the Washington, DC LGBTQ+ community and has fostered fun, fitness, and friendship among gay runners and walkers of all ages and abilities.
