Palm Springs Front Runners & Walkers is a running and walking club for members and friends of the LGBTQ+ community in the Coachella Valley. We are a local chapter of International Front Runners, an informal network of LGBTQ+ running groups around the world. Membership is open to everyone without regard to ability, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. Join us for our daily runs and walks!
In addition to running and walking we host and participate in athletic and social events throughout the year. As a non-profit organization and member of the Desert Business Association (DBA), we are conscientious about giving back to our community. Each year we host the annual Palm Springs Pride Run and Walk during Pride Weekend. Proceeds from this annual event benefit local organizations providing vital services to the Coachella Valley.
Through our shared interests we work toward our club objectives of fitness, fundraising, and friendship.
PSFR&W is a member of Road Runners Club of America, dedicated to the development of community-based running clubs and events that serve runners of all ages and abilities in pursuit of health and competition.
