Club 261 Austria hosted a very special event in Klagenfurt, Carinthia, a southern region of the country. Whatever you do, the first step is always the hardest. That's no different when you start running - the first time is a challenge for most of us. We are not sure what to expect and where it will lead and we need to be very fearless to do it!
To help women to become fearless and take the first step, Club 261 Austria hosted the event "Run on Sun". There, 261 members told their very personal stories about how they laced their running shoes for the first time. Without competition or any kind of pressure they could experience the joy of running in a group at the 261 meet run for the first time. The women are still enthusiastic about running and want to pass that on to other women.
The talk was open to everyone - women, men, experienced runners and those who are curious about it. Over 40 women took part and became inspired by the fantastic running story. The event took place at Sonnentor, an Austrian brand for organic tea and herbs, and even a member of the federal government joined. As it was such a huge success, another "Run on Sun" event will take place in Trofaiach, Styria, a region east of Carinthia.
The passion running gave to our 261 members sparked curiosity in other women, helping them become fearless and empowered. Together, we simply run on the sun!
