Palm Springs Front Runners and Walkers is a gay and lesbian oriented running and walking club. Just one of the many International Front Runners clubs established throughout the world. Although the majority of our members are walkers, we have a large group of avid runners—many running at various speeds and distances. Membership as a runner or walker is open to all persons without regard to ability, age, ethnicity, gender, status, or sexual orientation. Although no one is required to be a paid member to join us for our runs and walks, we ask for dues to offset costs of club mailings, our membership and insurance with the RRCA, post office box fees, etc.
Our objectives are to:
– promote amateur sports, exercise and recreation
– encourage and assist in members’ pursuit of individual running/walking goals
– participate in race/sports events
– promote camaraderie among gay and lesbian runners and walkers and the community of Coachella Valley.
Come out and join us for our daily fun runs and walks. We also host and participate in numerous social and athletic events during the year. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organizations, Palm Springs Front Runners and Walkers is conscientious about helping support other community organizations in need of funding. Each year, we produce the annual Pride Run and Walk 5k in November on Gay Pride Weekend. The last two years we have donated over $29.000 to The LGBT Community Center of the Desert from proceeds from this event which uses a course through Old Las Palmas.
