Frontrunners & Frontwalkers Phoenix has a long and exciting history. We started our club in the Phoenix Metropolitan area in 1999 with three runners who came together to run once every two weeks. Since then, we have grown substantially and currently have three running and walking activities every week. 

Frontrunners & Frontwalkers Phoenix is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization run by a Board of Directors elected by our Members. We are a member of International Front Runners, a consortium of over one-hundred Frontrunner chapters worldwide. Being an IFR member greatly expands our visibility and gives members access to a global network of gay-identified running organizations. We are also a member of Road Runners Club of America who issues our insurance and provides us with governing and running resources.

Javelina Jundred Donation

The awesome people at Aravaipa Running chose FRFWPHX to once again be the recipient of the charity beer garden at their October 2022 Javelina Jundred event. We are incredibly humbled and grateful for their support of the LGBTQ+ community.

This year we decided to share portions of the charity proceeds we received with two other local LGBTQ support organizations, Equality Arizona and One-n-Ten
