261 Train the Trainer Course

Our “Train the Trainer” course is the foundation of the 261 Fearless Organization and it is the prerequisite for starting a 261 Fearless Running Club in your area. By participating in this training program, you will learn the unique methods the 261 Fearless team uses to promote programs that help develop a life-long love of running.

At this two and a half day certification course for women, 261 Fearless Master Coaches train future club directors and coaches how to foster a judgement-free and supportive environment that focuses on safe and injury-free running. You will learn about the techniques for managing a successful female running group so you can confidently bring the program to others in your area. Included in the seminars are the operational techniques required by 261 Fearless and a full introduction to the business aspects of the program to ensure your local running club has the necessary resources for the future.

261 Fearless certified Club Directors and 261 Coaches

After successfully completing the seminar you will receive a 261 Fearless Club Director Certificate and you can launch a 261 Fearless Running Club that meets and provides athletic and mutual support to club members.

Certified 261 Coaches are able to guide local 261 Club meet runs under the roof of an existing local 261 Club.

Please note: Any use of 261 and 261 Fearless e.g. for the establishment of local meet runs with out attending the 261 Fearless Train the Trainer course is strictly prohibited.
