Front Runners New York (FRNY) has been an active running and multi-sport club for LGBT and LGBT-friendly athletes for more than 30 years. It continues to be true to its original mission of providing a healthy athletic and social experience to the LGBT community. It is bigger and better than ever and hope you join us for a run soon!

Participants of the LGBT Pride Run

Whether you're a top racer or a novice, the Pride Run delivers a unique experience from the colorful outfits and cheering crowds at the start to the rainbow popsicles at the finish line. Over 5,000 of you ran the 2015 LGBT Pride Run! That's after the race sold out in early May—almost a full month earlier than the prior year.

The members of Front Runners New York extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who registered, ran, cheered, and helped to celebrate this historic year.  Read a full recap of the 2015 LGBT Pride Run or consider reviewing the 2015 Pride Run Program Book!
