A minimum fundraising requirement of US$ 8,000 (US$ 3,000 for runners already holding a bib for the 2019 Boston Marathon®) is assigned to each individual entry to participate with Team 261 Fearless and is to be raised through his/her own individual fundraising efforts (per B.A.A. Charity rules). Funds raised by Team 261 Fearless participants benefit 261 Fearless global and local programs and services.

Upon receipt of your completed application, 261 Fearless will charge a US$ 50 non-refundable application fee through our PayPal portal provided at the end of this application. The fee must be paid in order for you to be considered. Completing the application and paying the fee does not guarantee a place on Team 261 Fearless.
