Ottawa Frontrunners (OFR) is a running and walking club for members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community and friends. Located in Ottawa, Ontario, it is Canada’s national capital chapter of International Frontrunners. We have runners of various ages and skill levels and typically have groups going between 5 and 10 km (3 and 6 miles) at various paces. Walkers are also members of the club, consisting usually of runners on the injury list and partners or friends of runners.
