Dive into the world of 261 Fearless

Train the Trainer Nashville

After a weekend full of fun and 261 spirit we certified four new Coaches. Find out who they are!

Four new 261 Coaches for the USA

Nashville welcomed 261 Fearless with warm southern hospitality at our Train the Trainer course. Led by Master Coaches Melissa Stringer and Emily Ertel, four ambitious and fearless women have been certified as a Coach, Group Leader or Club Director. They will provide competition-free and judgement-free weekly meet runs in their local communities and help women to become fearless through running. We wish you all the best for your new challenge!

Let us introduce our new 261 Coaches to you:

Hillary Gladden

Hillary Gladden of Pasadena, CA completed the training as a Club Director and will be supporting the launch of a Club in Southern CA. She espouses the fearless spirit wholeheartedly and has been known to say, “FUN doesn’t rhyme with RUN by accident”. 


Diane Hall

Dianne Hall of Rockvale, TN will serve as Club Director for a Middle Tennessee (MidTen) Club. She believes no one knows women like other women and quotes, “I love my runner girls! When we get out to run…it is pure joy!”


Gina Lennon

Gina Lennon, a native to Tennessee and current resident of Murfreesboro will serve the future MidTen Club as a 261 Coach. She joins 261 Fearless with a passion for running and a strong desire to motivate and inspire others. Gina shares, “my goal is to help as many people as I can and promote a healthy self image for girls and women in my community”. 


Wendy Sadler

Wendy Sadler of Rockvale, TN completed the weekend course as a Group Leader and will join in to support the launching of a 261 Fearless Club in Middle Tennessee. Her background in running, her energy, humor and positive attitude she shared throughout the weekend make us all excited for the ladies who will soon get to experience 261 Fearless in Tennessee!
