Run with us

We meet every Sunday for 10am in Stanley Park in the heart of Blackpool. We run a social 5k – this means the majority of the group will be running at a pace where they can hold a conversation.

We meet at the base of the Cocker Clock Tower in the heart of the park.

Everyone is welcome

Everyone is welcome to join us – simply just come along. We are an LGBT+ inclusive group, which means that as long as you are awesome you can run with us. The only stipulation is that you need to be aged 18+.

Speed/ running ability is not important. As long as you are enthusiastic and are happy to keep going for 30 mins – you will be made most welcome.

After our run we usually pick up a coffee at either Starbucks or the Pavilion Cafe


– Stanley Park has ample free parking around its perimiter
– Free to use toilets are availible next the the Pavilion Cafe
– Chargable changing facilities can be found at the Blackpool Sports Centre in Stanley park.

About us

Blackpool Frontrunners is part of International Frontrunners – a world-wide network of LGBTQ+ running and walking clubs. We were founded in 2021, however, the Frontrunner movement has been around since 1974.

Our aims are simple – encourage social interaction of the LGBTQ+ community in Blackpool and along the Fylde coast through the use of running.
