Frontrunners Track Club of Greater Los Angeles (more commonly known as LA Frontrunners) is a running and walking club for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, their friends, and their supporters. Founded in 1981, the club takes its name from The Frontrunner, Patricia Nell Warren's 1974 best-selling novel about a gay relationship. The club participates in competitive and non-competitive running events, an annual Pride Run, and other fundraising and social events. LA Frontrunners' aims include informing the general public of the mental and physical health benefits of running; organizing and coordinating running events and programs; and promoting understanding and camaraderie between people of different ages, ethnicities, and sexual orientations.
In 2012, the LA Frontrunners is one of more than 100 Frontrunner clubs throughout the United States and other countries.
