Pride Run 2017 marks the 36th running of the Los Angeles Frontrunners Pride Run. Come join us in celebrating 36 years of running, fitness, friendship, and family. Our race is 100% volunteer organized. Each year LAFR makes a substantial contribution to local charities with the proceeds of the Pride Run.

Earlier this year, Los Angeles Frontrunners lost one of our most beloved and cherished members, Carl Maravilla. We have chosen three beneficiaries for Pride Run 2017 in memory of Carl:
1. A scholarship named for Carl through his Rotary Club: Club Rotario de Latinos Unidos. Carl was a past President.
2. The El Santo Nino Community Center. This is a local Los Angeles community center servicing those in need that was important to Carl and his Rotary Club.
3. A scholarship named for Carl that his siblings are establishing at his alma mater, Stanford University.
