Your SFFR Week (10/16-10/23)

10/16/2017, 8:00am PDT
By Brian Ray

The air quality is finally improving, and we're heading into a couple weeks of fun, club-related events! Here is your weekly dose of all things FrontRunners:

Thanks/Recap From Last Week:
This last week we had a Board meeting, continued to hear nominations for the 2018 Pride Run beneficiary, and finished our Couch To 5K program at the East Bay Pride Run. A huge thanks to everyone who made it out, to EBFRW for putting on another great event, and to Gary, Chuck, Alex, and Byron for coaching Couch To 5K!

SFFR Rollerskating At Church Of 8 Wheels - 10/20 - 7-11PM
Come join your fellow Frontrunners for the Godfather's Friday Night Roller Disco at the Church of Eight Wheels! The event is 18+, and the costs are: $10 to enter, $5 for skate rental. Learn more here.

October Bagel Brunch - 10/21 - 10AM
The fantastic Steve Benne of Molto Benne Catering will be putting on a delicious Bagel Brunch for us this Saturday at 10AM in the Stow Lake Boathouse area. Cost is $8 per person. We'll also be hearing statements on our 2018 Pride Run Beneficiary nominees (see below).

2018 SFFR Pride Run Beneficiary Nominees Selected! Hear From Them This Saturday At Bagel Brunch
The deadline to nominate beneficiaries for the 2018 Pride Run has passed, and we have three nominees that you will be hearing from at this Saturday's Bagel Brunch. We will also post their statements online shortly after that, and then commence voting. Stay tuned!

Lafayette Reservoir Run - 10/22 - 8AM
For the first time in a long time, this East Bay race does not begin on the Sunday morning after Halloween partying, so this is definitely the year to come out and enjoy it! The popular run features a hilly but very scenic 10K (8:15 a.m.), a flat 5K race (8:00), and even a 2-mile fun run (8:45). Martin and Eileen are once again inviting FrontRunners to an amazing brunch following the run! Learn more here.

Official Uniforms And Additional SFFR Merchandise Order!
Our official team uniforms have arrived! If you placed an order, you can pick them up at Saturday and Sunday Runs. If you need to pick them up outside of those times, please email

While new orders for official uniforms are currently closed, 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 - 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, please reach out to Elections Committee members Chuck and Bob, or email
