Membership is open to all, regardless of age, gender identity or expression, sexuality or running ability. Edinburgh Frontrunners is the UK's 11th and Scotland's 4th frontrunners club, and part of an international collection of frontrunners groups with branches in over 100 cities around the world!





We hold two recreational club runs each week, on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. All runs depart from a park, and due the location of the venues chosen as a consequence of being compliant with local Covid protocols and regulations there are currently no showers, lockers or changing rooms available at either of the venues. After each run, we go to a nearby pub or cafe for food and drinks.  

If you are joining us for one of our sessions please use the weekly sign-up sheets link.

Our social media channels contain the most up-to-date information and guidance including any sudden changes or adjustments relating to all club activities and events.

We kindly ask all our members not to join us for any sports or social activities if you are feeling unwell or have any Covid-19 symptoms.





Seeing as Edinburgh Frontrunners is primarily a recreational and social running group that aims to provide a safe and welcoming running club environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex runners and straight friends, diversity is very important to us, therefore understanding and becoming familiar with key concepts of diversity is essential for anyone that might be considering to join our group. The Diversity section of this website helps further explain what EFR stands for and everyone is encouraged to read it.
