Palm Springs Front Runners and Walkers was started in March 1997 by Phil Catalli and Lee Walton as a local chapter of International Front Runners, an informal network of LGBTQ+ running and walking clubs around the world. Over the years our club has grown to become one of the largest of its kind in the US, with approximately 300 members.
We welcome runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. Although most of our members come from the LGBTQ+ community, membership is open to all persons who share our objectives of fitness, fundraising, and friendship.
Whether you are a full-time resident, a snow bird, a frequent visitor, or vacationing in our beautiful Coachella Valley, we hope you consider joining us for one of our fitness or social activities.
