A celebration of sisterhood & empowerment


261 Fearless Events and 261 Fearless Partner Events offer our 261 Fearless members and runners a great opportunity to meet, to exchange and to celebrate the joy of running. 

In alignment with our 261 Fearless mission, these events are about camaraderie and supporting each other. It isn't about rivalry and competing with others - it's about challenging yourself, achieving personal goals and experience the wonderful feeling crossing that finish line. 

May 3-5, 2019 I Toronto, CAN

Toronto Marathon EXPO

Kathrine Switzer and our 261 Fearless team are coming to the Toronto Marathon weekend to seek for Canadian women runners who want to help women change their lives through running. 

They will be making two information sessions at the Toronto Marathon expo, one each on both Friday May 3 (at 4 PM) and Saturday May 4 (at 2 PM) to inform and excite Canadian women about the 261 Education program and what it means to become a certified 261 Coach. They help other women become empowered through participation in a noncompetitive, nonjudgmental running program in their own town or neighborhood. The expo is at the Better Living Centre, Exhibition Place, 195 Princes’ Blvd.
