Before each run/walk announcements are made, followed by a brief warm up session. and a short round of introductions are made. The leader makes sure newcomers/visitors knows the route and have a buddy who will run their pace and distance. Runners of every pace and experience level are encouraged to come to all our runs.
Monthly Supplemental Training -Speed, Splash, & Eat
Speed training is in integral part of every race regiment. Speed workouts puts your muscles through a fuller range of motion, improving flexibility and adds endurance. It trains more muscles (and more muscle fibers within muscles), for muscle efficiency.
Front Runners have incorporated Speed Training for those individuals that seek to improve their overall health and increase their physicality. Speed Training consists of a set of intervals for a predetermined distance at a sprint pace. Pack and picnic-style dinner to eat following an interval speed workout and then dive into the beautiful waters of Fort Lauderdale beach for a cool-off swim.

What We Do
As an important part of the Fort Lauderdale running community, Front Runners Fort Lauderdale participates in many local running events.
The club encourages all its member to participate in as many race events as possible and celebrates its members achievements, including PRs, Race Placements, first distances, even your first race.
From Ragnar to Keys 100 or Ultramarathons, Front Runners Fort Lauderdale offers its members the chance to do something they may never do alone.
As a part of the relay team you spend time with fellow cub members training and ultimately running towards the finish line for the ultimate sense of accomplishment.
Tired of walking alone? Looking for a new way to motivate yourself and get moving? Walking has long been recognized by health professionals as a gentle, low-impact exercise that can help anyone of any age transition to a higher level of fitness and health. Our Front Walkers meet three times a week and walk a 3 mile loop making friends along the way.
It's not always about running or walking a race, sometimes it's about volunteering at a race that makes a difference. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community. Everyone that has ever run/walked a race knows, it's the volunteers handing out water, giving out food, directing traffic, handing out medals or cheering them on that pushes them to complete a race.
