By Brian Ray

Fleet Week and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass out of the way... now time for the East Bay Pride Run (and picking out your Halloween Costume)! Here is your weekly dose of FrontRunners news and events:

Thanks/Recap From Last Week:
This last week we had October Movie Night, continued to hear nominations for the 2018 Pride Run beneficiary, and Finished our 2nd-to-last Couch To 5K week. A huge thanks to everyone who made it out and to Chris Neal for hosting Movie Night!

Club Board Meeting - 10/9 - 7PM
The 2017 Board will be meeting for our monthly get-together. This time we'll be doing some additional planning for the Halloween and End Of Year parties. As always, any current member may attend for the first 30 minutes to share any ideas. More info here.

Final Couch To 5K Week, Culminating In The EBFRW Pride Run - 10/14 - 9AM
Our 7-week Couch To 5K is in the final week! We'll cap off the program with the East Bay Pride Run (10/14)! The event will be at Lake Merritt's Boat House. Medals for the top 3 male and female finishers for all events. Registration is $25 before race day and $30 on race day. Online and paper registration available. SFFR will still have the regular Saturday run/walk in Golden Gate Park.

Nominations Open - 2018 SFFR Pride Run Beneficiary
Have a great LGBTQ+ (or aligned) organization that you think should be our Pride Run Beneficiary? Let the board know by submitting your nomination(s) to! Important note: In order to spread the love, we are accepting nominations who have not been a beneficiary for the past 5 Pride Runs. Deadline to nominate an organization is October 15th as we will likely hear from them during Bagel Brunch on the 21st.

Gear Up For Fall & Winter With SFFR Merchandise!
While our orders are currently closed for our official team uniforms, you can always purchase our additional merchandise to gear up for the holidays! Bob Callori will be taking orders from 10/1-10/29 to get bulk order discounts on merchandise from our online store. Check out last year's design, the garments available, and how to order here.

2018 Elections - Committee & Candidate Interest
The 2017 Board still has plenty of fun in store for you this year, but our terms will eventually come to an end, and we'll want a new team of amazing Board Members to share their vision with the club! If interested in possibly running for a role, or in helping via the Elections Committee, please reach out to
