Founded in 1981, the club takes its name from The Frontrunner, Patricia Nell Warren's 1974 best-selling novel about a gay relationship. The club participates in competitive and non-competitive running events, an annual Pride Run, and other fundraising and social events. LA Frontrunners' aims include informing the general public of the mental and physical health benefits of running; organizing and coordinating running events and programs; and promoting understanding and camaraderie between people of different ages, ethnicities, and sexual orientations.
