January Collection of the Month: D.C. Front Runners records

Logo: DC Front RunnersSpecial Collections is pleased to announce the opening of the D.C. Front Runners records, a collection of photographs, newsletters, correspondence, race results, and membership and financial records documenting D.C.’s landmark running and social club for the LGBT community.

The D.C. Front Runners was founded in 1981 and is now one of dozens of Front Runners clubs in the United States and abroad. The first Front Runners organization was formed in San Francisco in 1978, as a running club with a name inspired by Patricia Nell Warren's novel The Front Runner. After over 30 years, the group continues to organize weekly walks and runs, sponsor local running events, arrange social events, and send runners to local and national races.

For more information on this collection, check out the finding aid and then come take a look at the collection here!
