The 10k + 5k race combo was amazing!! The 10k course was stunning and the 5k course was an awesome urban run. It was well organized too. Thank you for a great run!

Had a great time at the Pride Run today (except for maybe that 12th mile haha). Thought the course was a lot of fun! Thanks for putting on a great race 🙂

Our History

Phoenix Frontrunners has a long and exciting history. We started our club with three runners who came together to run once every two weeks. Since then, we have grown substantially and currently have three running and walking activities every week.

We started out in the Phoenix Metropolitan area in 1999 and took on the name Arizona Frontrunners 2001.  We then changed our name to Phoenix Frontrunners in 2013. We did this to align our name with our city location, which also helps us align with our peer Front Runner organizations across the United States.

Our Roots

Phoenix Frontrunners started out as a chapter of International Front Runners frontrunners.org.

Front Runner organizations take their name from “The Front Runner” novel by Patricia Nell Warren, which first published in 1974. It is a love story about a proud, out, world-class college distance runner and his coach, and their struggle to compete in the 1976 Montreal Olympics.

The first Front Runner organization started in San Francisco in 1974 and adopted their name in 1978. The concept for the international organization began back in 1986.
