Newcastle Frontrunners is a running club catering to the north-east of England, and based in Newcastle upon Tyne.  We are part of the International Frontrunners network, a family of running clubs which are inclusive and welcome all sections of the community, with an emphasis on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) communities.  We provide training and activities whether you want to just lose a few pounds, improve your general health, or run the London Marathon. We also have a very active social calendar, and we eat a lot of cake.
