On March 5, Hyde Park will see the very first women-only 5k run held by the London Frontrunners. The first event will begin at 10am, and will continue weekly on every Saturday throughout March.

The International Women’s Day-inspired events will be guided by members of the London Frontrunners and are open to all women who are over the age of 18, irrespective of sexual orientation. The cost for entry is £1 per run, paid upon attendance.

To take part meet between 9.40 – 9.50 am at St Mary’s Hospital Gym which is a short walk from Paddington Station (St Mary’s Gym, Praed Street, W2 1NY.)

London Frontrunners are the largest LGBT+ running club in the UK, welcoming those who identify as LGBTQA* and their friends. They hold regular runs in Regents Park, Hyde Park and along the South Bank in London.

As well as running together, the club is a great place to network and meet new people. Their members range from the inexperienced to marathon runners, and welcome new members of all abilities regardless of previous experience.

A spokesperson for the group, said: “We don’t mind where on (or off) the Kinsey Scale you fall, whether you can or can’t identify with one of the letters of LGBTTQQIIAA, are friends with a member or just like the parks we run around. You’re welcome to come for a run with us.”
