Blackpool Frontrunners was formed in 2021. Although ‘technically’ a running club, BFR is more focused on providing a safe social space for members of the LGBTQ+ community than going fast. That said – PB’s are always a bonus!

We are open to everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or running ability.
