FRWFL at the 
Gay Games Paris

August 4-12, 2018


Thomas "Hero" Nguyen

A newer member of our club, Thomas "Hero" Nguyen will be participating in Men's Track & Field at the Gay Games next month. He will be competing in the 100, 200 , 400 and 100 x 4 Relay. At 48 years old, Hero is no newcomer to competition though, he earned a bronze medal in 2014 at Cleveland during the 9th Gay Games for the 400 Meter Relay. He has been a member of USATF since 2016. Let's wish him luck as he trains this month. He is hopeful that by his participation he can support and further the fight for LGBT equality.

Race/Walk Incentive Program


Do you want a gift certificate for $100, $50 or $25 to buy new gear?
Our incentive program is being expanded to both running and walking members for the second half of the year. For the runners, you'll again receive entries based on distance (1 for 5k or under, 2 for 10k to a 5k, 3 for anything over a 10k) as well as performance (1 additional point for placing in your age group, 2 for an age group win, and 4 for an overall top 3 finish). For walkers, submit steps or miles at the end of each month. Walkers will receive 1 entry for every 5 miles or 10,000 steps. You may participate as either a walker or a runner, but not both, please no swimming or biking distances. Running events are officially timed races with published results. Walking events can be at any time or pace. Event starts July 1, and continues until the Holiday Social. At that time a random weighted lottery (based on your total number of entries) will occur for gift certificates in the amount of $100, $50, and $25 in both categories. Submit your races or mileage to
If you need assistance enabling the pedometer on your Android or iOS phone please see club president, Eric Runyan.
