Run or Walk

Weekly Run/Walk

First Time with us? Welcome!

Front Runners and Walkers Fort Lauderdale loves to have visitors and guests join us. We run in one of the country’s most beautiful cities and sometimes along the fabulous Ft. Lauderdale Boardwalk - we have visitors and new people all the time. If it’s your first time with us, we’ll ask you to fill out a waiver on your phone (this may be done ahead of time), but there’s no cost to walk or run with us. 

We run and walk three times a week, Wednesday evening, Saturday morning and Sunday evening (See our schedule here for times and locations) as well as for other supplementary training. You’re welcome to join us for any of these. We usually have about even numbers of walkers and runners. If possible, arrive a few minutes early and ask if a board member or race coordinator is present and let them know you’re new. If you’re walking or running, we’ll try to match you with someone else (or a small group) that is roughly your pace. We’ll also give you a fun sticker to wear so that others in the group will know you’re new and try to keep you on course. 

At our meeting time, we’ll start with some basic stretching exercises, followed by introductions and announcements - most people say their names and the distance they’re running: (“Hi, I’m emily - I’m planning to run 4 miles” or “Hi, I’m Robert - I’ll be walking”) and then we’ll set off. Whoever is leading announcements will state the route (Also listed on our calendar) and where we’ll be meeting for an optional casual meal afterwards. We have a variety of walking and running routes at each of our start locations. You can preview them here, and for real-time turn-by-turn directions, we’ve got them all on the free RUNGO App - you can search for FRWFL to find them. 

About an hour after we start running and walking, we usually lead a short “not so terrible” core workout - usually around 10 minutes or so. Bring a towel and/or mat and join us, it’s a great way to keep your stabilizing muscles in shape to help you keep running and walking stronger. 

After that - many of us retreat to a local casual restaurant to grab a bite to eat and catch up with each other. We hope you’ll join us for the meal too!

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. 

Relay Teams

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. 

Front Walkers

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.  

Race Volunteer

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. 

We encourage our runners and walkers to join our Club on Strava at . Download the app for Android or iOS and Log your workouts. Then it will then appear on the widget to the right here. 

Workout Incentive & Participation (WIP) Program

Earn points toward valuable gifts and raffles for running, volunteering, bringing new people to the club, and much more.  

Congratulations to our May Racers
