The club welcomes people from all walks of life. Visitors are always welcome to join us.

Member's Spotlight and News

FRWFL Island City Canoe Race Team Congratulations!! 

Let's give a big shout out to our team for the IC Canoe Relay. We lost no one at sea and even managed to not finish last. Most importantly as you can see from the pics a great time was had by all.  



Best Sport Team  and Best Sport League- FRWFL

Thanks to all our members and friends that voted for us. 

In an upset this year Frontrunners sped past its competition to take the top spot for Best Sports Team and Best Sports League.

Front Runners is a running and walking group offering a supportive environment for members, welcoming LGBT people from all areas of life.

Frontrunners beat out the gay softball league, who won Best League for the last seven years. Last year Frontrunners tied for first place for Best Sports Team but this year they stood at the podium all alone.

“We are a team built on individual accomplishments, but we truly encourage each other and celebrate each other's efforts and victories,” Eric Runyan, the organization’s president, said last year. “We are a family that encourages excellence but prizes progress.”
