Welcome to Brighton & Hove FrontRunners! We are a friendly group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LBGTQ+) intermediate and improver runners who meet on a regular basis for fun and social running.
Brighton & Hove Front Runners was founded in October 2018 after one of our co-founding members posted in the LGBT Brighton & Hove Network Facebook Forum to see if there was any interest in a local LGBTQ Running Club. The decison was made to form a branch of Front Runners in Brighton and Hove. From there a bunch of keen LGBTQ runners met up one evening a week and the rest, as they say, is history. There are over one hundred Front Runners clubs around the world and they are as diverse as where they are situate and we are happy to represent Brighton and Hove.
We are a friendly group of LGBTQ+ runners who meet at 7pm every Wednesday at the green area next to the King Alfred leisure centre car park.
Our weekly club run varies from week to week and we regularly do interval training and time trials for people who want to improve or monitor how well they are doing. You can choose at which level to get involved.
We also do local races and hold regular social events. We are the biggest attendees of all the front runners groups at ParkRuns and members can normally be seen weekly each of the 4 Brighton Runs and once a month we do a ‘park run takeover’ in B&H and the wider Sussex region.
We are a mixed ability group and sessions are planned to keep people together and nobody is left behind. As long as you can jog 3k in under 30 minutes without keeling over you will be fine, please see our beginners page for information.
