By Brian Ray

Happy Monday! Here is your weekly dose of all things FrontRunners:

Thanks/Recap From Last Week:
This last week we roller skated at the Church of 8 Wheels, had a delicious Bagel Brunch where we heard from our 2018 Pride Run beneficiary nominees, and had a ton of fun at the Lafayette Reservoir Run. A huge thanks to everyone who made it out to each event, to Ted for planning skating, to Steve Benne of Molto Benne Catering for Bagel Brunch, and to Martin and Eileen for hosting us at the Lafayette post-run brunch!

2018 SFFR Pride Run Beneficiary Vote - Voting Closes 10/30!
We have now heard from both 2018 beneficiary nominees, Gender Spectrum and Project Homeless Connect! All current members should have received an email last night with a link to a ballot. Only 1 vote per member and make sure to fill out all required items on the ballot to make your vote count! After the 30th, we will announce the 2018 beneficiary.

Alameda Color Run With EBFRW - 10/28 - 8AM
It's called "the happiest 5K on the planet" and has been experienced by over six million runners worldwide in 35+ countries. San Francisco FrontRunners and East Bay Front Runners and Walkers have decided to share the unbridled joy of unicorns and exploding bursts of color with each other. Learn more about the phenomenon here: For more details and to join us in this event, email Gary Pfitzer at

2018 Elections - Candidate Interest
