Welcome to 2019! Here is your weekly dose of all things FrontRunners:

Thanks/Recap From Last Week:
First, let's address the decision to sell our competitive SFFR team to Nike. It's not personal. It's business, and I thank SFFR for my new Tesla...... APRIL FOOLS! It's actually a Mercedes.

What's up SFFR? It's getting warmer, and there's still light out in the evening. Did you know our PRIDE Run registration is up now? Click HERE for more information. 

1) Movie Night hosted by Dave Parker - The Sum of Us on April 5th, 7pm -10pm
A widowed father has to deal with two complex issues: while he is searching for "Miss Right," his son, who is in his 20s and gay, is searching for "Mr. Right." Check calendar link HERE for details.

2) Presidio 10 Race with TEAM SFFR on April 14th, Sunday
Come represent and race with Team SFFR. We will warm-up, race, and brunch (our favorite activity) together. Please purchase a racing singlet and/or shorts if you haven't already. Team gear is available every Saturday to try on or at the event.

This is our 4th circuit event of the year so far. Times will be recorded for the record book.

Warm up time and brunch location TBD. Email if you want to be our designated photographer. Click HERE to register for the race. 

3) Pride Run Sponsorship Soirée- May 4 from 6-9 pm
Pride Run season is upon us! Please mark your calendar for a series of SUPER AWESOME events starting with our Pride Run Sponsorship Soirée in the Castro on Saturday, May 4 from 6-9pm. Invitations will be out soon!

Volunteer Opportunities!

Members' Call Out!

1) PRIDE Run- Understudies NEEDED! Garrett H. and Christian V. have played key roles in our annual PRIDE Runs. Both have served on the PRIDE Run committee for many consecutive years. They are looking to make a smooth exit but need at least two understudies to pass the baton. If you are looking to play a vital role in our iconic annual PRIDE Run, please email!

2) Old Running Shoe Donation- April 6th, Saturday morning run. Running shoes are collected several times a year and donated to Community Thrift 623 Valencia St SF with the beneficiary assigned to BARS. Bring them to the Saturday run and place them in the Footlocker. Contact Bob at for questions.

Enjoy your week!
