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

Thanks/Recap From Last Week:
How is everyone doing? Building that strong base? We are fast approaching Pride month! I personally want to thank everyone who checked up on my ankle injury. You've made being president all worth it :)

Thank you to those who supported and participated in the Easter Bonnet Run. 

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.

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.
