By now, you hopefully know a bit about 261 Fearless, the organization created by Kathrine Switzer. The group is an international social network that empowers women around the globe by uniting them through their passion for running. Running pioneer Kathrine Switzer established the non-profit organization in 2015 and it’s grown in so many ways in such a short time.
I’ve been blessed to be a part of this amazing group since September of 2015, as an Ambassador and then part of the 2017 Team 261 Fearless NYC charity team. It’s an awesome group of women of all athletic abilities all coming together to support each other.
261 Fearless has now launched the 261 Fearless Friends program. You can join the friendship program and gain access to the incredible 261 Fearless community, which connects you with other Fearless Friends globally. The private Facebook group gives opportunities to exchange experiences, give and/or receive encouragement and motivation as 261 continues to build an international network of like minded women.
All that is required is that you enjoy running and the idea of social running, support the 261 Fearless movement through engagement with the community, accept the community principles, and understand that there is no rivalry or comparisons when it comes to training/competitions within the 261 Friends community.
