About us

Front Runners & Walkers San Diego is a sporting and social club for lesbians, gay men, the larger community, including supporters, families and friends. Whether you're training for a race or just want to get some exercise, no matter your pace, come join us for weekly fun runs and walks! Routes range from a 3 mile walk in the park to 4-6 miles along the waterfront, through Balboa Park or in the trails.

We're a large part of the LGBTQ community. In 2017, over 1.000 runners participated in the Front Runners Pride 5k Run & Walk along the Pride Parade route in Hillcrest! We donated $14,000 in proceeds to benefit The Center's LGBT Youth Housing Project and Pride Community Grants. And we participate in Dining Out for Life, We Care Project and other events throughout the year.
