Liverpool Frontrunners is an inclusive community road-running group with strong links to Liverpool's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community and friends.
Formed in 2015, our ethos is to share our love of running with the wider LGBT+ community. To get fit and have fun whilst doing it.
We have runners of all abilities, from absolute beginners, to advanced competitive runners who undertake half-marathons, marathons and even the odd-ultra.
If you've ever wanted to start running but are a bit nervious, come and join us! We've all been beginners at some stage.
Liverpool Frontrunners is part of the UK and International Frontrunners Family. This is a network of over 120 LGBT+ inclusive running clubs around the world. You can find out more about the International Frontrunners at www.frontrunners.org
The mainstay of our week is the Wednesday Social Run. We meet at The Obelisk, by the Ullett Road
Entrance to Sefton Park, L17.
The pace of these runs is relaxed and all abilities are catered for. We stick together as a group and no one is left behind!
Everyone makes an effort to talk to everyone. We pride ourselves on being a friendly inclusive group.
We run up to three 15 - 20 minute routes and you are welcome to join us at any point in the evening.
There are always English Athletics-trained Run Leaders on hand to answer questions and give support.

We also participate fully in the calendar of Frontrunner events across the UK. You ain’t seen no party like a Frontrunner Party.
Our runners have been seen dancing the night away in the clubs of Liverpool and Manchester, they'll all deny it though...
