About Copenhagen Frontrunners
Copenhagen Frontrunners is Pan Idræt’s running & fitness walk club for all LGBTQ + in the Greater Copenhagen area. We are more than 180 members, including both beginners and experienced runners. There is room for everyone, including you.
We typically train divided into different teams, so everyone can participate. Every team is guided by coaches, ensuring that the training is effective and well calibrated. You can try different teams and, if in doubt, you can ask our Ambassadors to guide you in the selection.
After training we like to spend time together, eating at BK Skjold or in a restaurant. In addition, there are major social events such as summer parties, Christmas parties and post-New Year's celebrations.
We are part of Pan Idræt, but we are also members of the International Frontrunners as well as the Danish Athletics Federation (Dansk Atletik Forbund, DAF).
Where and when
We train every Tuesday from 6 to 7 pm (except in July and between Christmas and New Year). We are located at BK Skjold, Per Henrik Lings Allé 10, DK-2100 Copenhagen Ø - just behind Østerbro Stadium. Typically, we train in Fælledparken and in the areas nearby.
There are locker rooms, showers and locked storage rooms for bags and clothes. You must be dressed and ready to start at 6 pm.
There are additional pop-up runs spontaneously created by the community and shared in our Facebook group. Don’t be afraid to create some yourself to find some running buddies!

Copenhagen Frontrunners start running schools once or twice a year (find invitations on our Facebook page). Facebook page).
The running school is for you who - together with other LGBTQ +'s - over a 10-week period want to get started with or improve your running skills.
Our experienced instructors have organized a program which fits both complete beginners and those with some experience who want to improve their running and fitness skills. At the end of the running school there will be a smooth transition to the other teams.
Meetings are on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 7 pm at BK Skjold.
Copehnagen Frontrunners also offer fitnesswalk. This team is for you, who wants to train muscle groups such as abdomen, thighs, calves and back, combined with fitness interval walking in different tempos. Some of those who have joined our fitnesswalk team has an injury or wants to spare their knees and joints, while others join the team because of the combination of muscle training, getting fit and the nice social setting.
Like the running teams we train every Tuesday from 6 to 7 pm. We are located at BK Skjold, Per Henrik Lings Allé 10, DK-2100 Copenhagen Ø.
Steering group for Copenhagen Frontrunners
Copenhagen Frontrunners is part of Pan Idræt and hence subject to guidelines and policies set out by Pan Idræt, including the photo policy.
As we are an LGBT + club, there may be a need for stricter protection of the individual, which is why we, as a club, have stricter guidelines regarding the use of photos and video material.
As a current or former member of Copenhagen Frontrunners, you are bound by the club's stricter policy in this area.
In the club we have a closed group on Facebook, an open group on Facebook, an Instagram profile and material on Pan Sports's website.
Common to all 4 platforms applies:
- We notify when pictures are taken and make sure that everyone present has heard and perceived the alert.
- Notice MUST contain information about the intended use of the image/video.
- We make sure that those who do not want to be in the picture/video have the opportunity, both in terms of time and space, to move, without drawing undue attention to their choice.
- Pictured persons have the right to have photos/videos of which they appear deleted/removed.
- When preparing special material for promotion and advertising, where more planning than a snapshot can be expected to be required, adequate and timely notice - a minimum of 1 week will be given.
Special rules for the open Facebook group, Instagram and Pan Idræt website
- All uploading of photos and / or videos is done with clear oral consent.
- The notice must contain specific information that the material will be publicly available.
