DC Front Runners Washington, DC's LGBTQ+ Running & Walking Club


We welcome all runners in our community: fast and slow; young and old; marathon trainer and weekend warrior; experienced and beginner. Our club holds a regular schedule of non-competitive group runs.


Depending on the day, we run along Rock Creek Park, the National Mall, and the Potomac River banks. You can choose your distance and set your pace. Our runners are very diverse and we encourage and support all who participate. So don’t be shy…we’re here to help you achieve your goals and we’ll make sure that you will feel welcome!


Walking is great exercise and provides an opportunity to discover our city and enjoy friendly conversation. We hold organized walks on Saturdays and most federal holidays when we will make sure you won’t walk alone.  Walkers are free to show up and walk at other scheduled runs as well, but there may or may not be other walkers there. Some of the walkers set a brisk pace and walk four miles, but we encourage anyone of any ability to walk with us.
