Front propagation is considered for two kinds of sub-diffusion - reaction systems: (i) systems with sub-diffusion limited reaction rate governed by models with fractional time derivatives; (ii) systems with activation limited reaction rate governed by integro-differential equations with two time variables. It is shown that in the former case the front is described by a travelling wave solution, while in the latter the velocity of the front decreases with time.
