Who We Are

Portland Frontrunners is predominantly a running club for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and queer individuals and their friends in the Portland, Oregon area.  Our mission is to promote good health and provide an opportunity for positive social interaction through running, walking and club events in a supportive, LGBT running community.  We are a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization run by a Board of Directors elected by our Members.

If you have any questions, please Contact Us. Also, our Board of Directors can answer any questions you may have.

Portland Frontrunners is 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 PFR members access to a global network of gay-identified running organizations. In addition to this international affiliation, we are cultivating relationships with other Frontrunner clubs here in the US, particularly those on the West coast. One of our annual goals is to have several Frontrunner teams jointly participate in such activities as Oregon’s annual Hood-to-Coast Relay Race and the Portland Marathon.

Portland is home to many progressive, gay-friendly organizations. Please see the list of organizations we consider to be Partners in our community.
