President's Welcome Message

Palm Springs Front Runners and Walkers was started in March 1997 by our founders, Lee Walton and Phil Catalli, as a local chapter of an informal network of over 100 International Front Runner Clubs worldwide. Over the years, our local club has grown and become one of the largest organizations in the US supported by over 400 members.


Although most of our membership comes from the GLBT community, membership is open to all persons who share our objectives for fitness, fun, and fundraising.

We welcome walkers and runners of all ages (over 18) and ability levels, whether beginner or accomplished.

Whether you are a Coachella Valley full time resident, a snowbird, a consistent weekend visitor, or an occasional vacationer in our beautiful Valley, you will find the welcoming friendship, and activity programs we provide, to be a very positive experience.
