Fun, Fitness & Friends!
Provided by BayLands FrontRunners
BayLands FrontRunners is a not-for-profit club. Monthly business meetings are held following a Saturday morning walk/run and include the Board of Directors, Key Members, Staff, and other members who wish to participate.
Over 200 dues-paying members receive THE TIDES, a monthly newsletter, and also enjoy access to the membership directory in the members-only portion of the club website. More than 40% of BayLands members are also “Benefactors” who donate to fund club projects and events.
RacesBayLands members participate in local and state races such as Wharf to Wharf in Santa Cruz, Moonlight Run in Palo Alto, national and international marathons, as well as events at the Gay Games.
During the summer, members gather at the Baylands Preserve picnic area for a self-catered brunch each month following the Saturday morning run/ walk. This is an opportunity for members to invite friends and introduce them to our club.
Run for the Community
Beginning in 1995, BayLands FrontRunners has hosted Pride Runs in Palo Alto at the Baylands Preserve. The mayor of Palo Alto served as the first Guest Starter with members of both the local community and FrontRunners participating. In 1998, the event received the more inclusive title, “Run For The Community.” Patricia Nell Warren, author of The Front Runner, was Guest Starter at one such event.
