Come Run With Us

Front Runners New York (FRNY) is a running club for people who identify as LGBT and those who are LGBT allies. Being LGBT is not a requirement to run with FRNY. We welcome runners of all speeds, ages, and abilities.
FRNY draws a wide variety of athletes. Some FRNY members race on a weekly basis—others never race at all. We train track sprinters, middle distance runners, ultra marathoners, walkers, swimmers, and triathletes.
If you are interested in learning more about FRNY, we recommend joining any of our weekly fun runs in Central or Prospect Park. Our Saturday fun run is our best-attended run, offering a wide variety of paces and distances, plus a social post-run team bagel breakfast in the basement recreation room of Rutgers Church. Each fun run has an opportunity for a bag drop ahead of the run. Click on the heading to get the full details on each run.

Tuesday Nights.

The Tuesday evening Fun Runs are held at Prospect Park in Brooklyn. The group meets at the 3rd Street and Prospect Park West entrance in front of the Panther statues.

Wednesday Nights.

Wednesday night Fun Runs are at 7pm in Central Park at the entrance of the park at west 72nd Street. Many runners gather informally for dinner after the run at local restaurants near Rutgers Church.

Saturday Morning.

The Saturday Fun Runs meet at 10am right by the Daniel Webster Statue on the west side of 72nd street transverse in Central Park. The Saturday fun run is followed by a lite, social coffee-and-bagel breakfast in the basement of Rutgers Church (236 West 73rd St.).
