Remember, you can check all scheduled events, important calendar dates, activity recaps, runner bios, and reoccurring columns at our official site: sffr.org and our blog: sffrontrunners.tumblr.com/
*Special Note on Online Information: Now that the new sffr.org site (link) is launched, we will be using that as the primary source of news and information from the club. We will still have our blog (link), twitter (link), and facebook (link) pages that will receive identical information from the official site. Because of this, you should be able to view accurate information on all online sites. If you are having trouble viewing anything at any of these options, please let us know (email firstname.lastname@example.org). Some of you have been having trouble viewing news on our facebook page. Please note that there is an official SF FrontRunners Page (link). This is not the group page that many of you are members of, and is less an official page and more of a social and community page. For accurate information, simply “like” the official page and you will receive all news updates.
