Chicago’s LGBT Running & Walking Club
Frontrunners/Frontwalkers Chicago is the city’s premier running and walking club for the lesbian, gay, bi, and trans communities of Chicago. Wherever you are on your personal journey as an LGBT person and as a runner or walker, Frontrunners/Frontwalkers Chicago provides a welcoming and fun environment where you can meet new friends and realize personal goals. FR/FW Chicago also welcomes and encourages allies of the LGBT community to join our club.
FR/FW Chicago is proud to be part of the international Frontrunners community and encourage our members to run with other Frontrunner clubs when they travel. We are also always happy to host members of other Frontrunner clubs whenever they travel to Chicago.
Our Weekly Fun Runs/Walks
We meet Tuesdays at 6:30pm and Saturdays at 9:00am year round, rain or shine, at the Totem Pole located just east of the intersection of Addison and Lake Shore Drive. We offer a 3 mile walking course, and 3, 4, 5, and 6 mile running courses. Afterwards, we share a meal at one of the many great restaurants located in the Lakeview, Uptown, and Edgewater neighborhoods of Chicago. We encourage people interested in joining the club to come to a few runs/walks to meet our members and get to know the courses.
