Welcome to Newcastle Frontrunners


The Northeast’s only lesbian, gay, bi, trans and gay-friendly running club!

JOIN US TODAY

We have sessions for all abilities on Monday and Wednesday evenings, Sunday mornings, plus other events throughout each month. LGBT or just gay-friendly, all are welcome so come join us.

Our qualified coaches and run leaders can assist you to improve your running ability or develop personalised training plans if you have a specific goal in mind. If you’re new to running, check out our Couch to 5k programme.

We know not everyone wants to race, but for those that do we have a packed calendar of races and events locally and across the UK. Plus we organise our popular LGBT 5k too. 

We’re a very friendly bunch, with an active social calendar. There’s usually a catch up after each session, plus regular meet ups and trips away.

How to join

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.
