Need help with information on Shoreline Frontrunners or our website? Before contacting us, please first read our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) below -- you might be able to find an answer more quickly.
When/Where do Shoreline Frontrunners meet?
We meet Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 pm and Saturdays at 9:00 am at the corner of Redondo Ave and Ocean Blvd in Long Beach, on the bluffs above the beach.
Note: When a major holiday falls on a Tuesday or Thursday, our runs are held at 9:00 in the morning instead of the evening.
Do I have to be a fast runner to participate?
No, we welcome people of all abilities. Our weekly course is out and back along the bikepath and everyone is free to turn around at any point they wish to. We also have a few walkers who join us. Please do not feel like you have to train before you show up for a run; part of the reason we're here is so we can make it easier for people to get into an exercise routine with others.
Can I bring my dog to run with me?
We have a few members who bring along their dogs for our weekly runs/walks. We welcome others who wish to bring their dogs to do so, but dog owners should realize that because our run/walk course is primarily on the bikepath and because pets are not allowed on the bikepath, those with pets will necessarily have to run a modified route. (We also don't have an established course for those with dogs; you may have to improvise!)
How do I join?
You can download this membership application and fill it out and turn it in with your membership dues. (It's in pdf format, so if you don't already have it, you will also have to download the Adobe Reader. It's free!) Please note that although we ask for membership dues to offset costs for our website, postage, PO box fees, insurance, etc., no one is required to become a dues-paying member to join us for our runs/walks, and no one is turned away for lack of funds.
Is it just a running/walking club?
No! In addition to our regular dining out after our runs during the week, the club also participates in a number of athletic and social events throughout the year. You can check out our events page to see a sample of some of the events and activities we engage in.
