Be fearless. Be FRIENDS.

Welcome to 261 Fearless - the unique international social network uniting and empowering women around the globe through their passion for running. You can support our mission as a friend - your contribution will provide women around the globe with access to running. Be fearless and inspire other women to do the same. Be part of the 261 Fearless community and connect with women worldwide. No matter where you run, know you're not alone out there. You have a friend at 261 Fearless. In fact, a lot of friends!

What is the 261 Friendship program?

As a 261 Friend you support our cause and through your contribution, we can improve our 261 education programs for coaches and aspiring coaches who then spread the message of social women's running in their local community. You actively support us in empowering women around the globe!

Apart from your symbolic support of our cause, 261 Friends are welcome to become active in the community if they wish to do so and can later apply for participation in 261 education programs with the goal to setup their own club in the future.

Please note: The 261 Friendship program is not tied to a membership in a local 261 Fearless Clubs.

What is the difference between joining as a 261 Friend or a local 261 Club Membership

261 Club membership is tied to the physical proximity to and participation in a local 261 Club, whereas the 261 Fearless Friendship program is independent of actual Clubs. Any woman who is interested in our cause, our message and our contributions to women’s running, regardless of where she is located, can join this program.

Please note: Being a 261 Friend does NOT entitle you to start your own local 261 Fearless Club!
