Who are we?
A safe, secure female-specific running community - inclusive of all ability, body type, religion, ethnicity or socio-economic status.
261 Fearless Clubs focus on fun, social, non-competitive running. All abilities of runners train together, supporting and encouraging one another. The result is that women feel part of a community rather than just a club, and with clubs spanning 5 continents, that community extends all over the globe. 261 Fearless Club Twin Cities meets weekly and is a platform for women of all walks of life and physical abilities to move fearlessly together through running inspired activities.
I'm not a "runner"! Is being a member of a 261 Fearless Club something I can do?
Absolutely! Whether you have never run a single step, are a seasoned runner, or are a woman in between, you can be part of our network of fearless women! Taking the first step as a runner can be overwhelming. Many women find that a supportive place like 261 Fearless Cub is the perfect place to start. For more experienced runners, we offer a space where you can complement your own training while you encourage and inspire women new to the sport.
What will membership give me?
261 Fearless Club Members are connected to a worldwide group of women through our private on-line platform where members can connect and make friends around the world! Annual memberships also offer discounted rates for 261 Fearless partner events and the opportunity to participate in 261 Fearless training and education. As a Club Member, you will become part of a culture that celebrates all women, regardless of ability or background, and encourages them to become fearless in all areas of life!
261 Fearless Club Twin Cities members have access to all weekly meet runs at all locations under the Twin Cities umbrella. We also offer events, fundraising opportunities, and more to our members.
Become a COACH and Tell Her She CAN!
There are ladies throughout our community who believe they can't run or are fearful to try. Because the benefits are endless, we need your help in helping others find the strength and empowerment running can provide. If you're someone who has discovered the power of running within your own life, we invite you to consider sharing your story with others through coaching. Coaches organize and lead weekly Meet Runs, delivering the 261Fearless program of social, non competitive running for women. Previous coaching or extensive running/racing experience is not required, rather women are sought who are passionate about the activity and are able to embody the 261 Fearless mission of empowering women towards it. All coaches are certified through 261 Fearless' Train the Trainer program and maintain certification through ongoing education opportunities. Interested in learning more?
