261 Fearless, Inc.
PLEASE NOTE THAT 261 FEARLESS IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THEIR 128TH BOSTON MARATHON TEAM.
We are FEARLESS TOGETHER.
261 Fearless, Inc. is the global non-profit organization co-founded by women’s running pioneer and the first woman to officially run and finish the Boston Marathon, Kathrine Switzer. Our work aims to empower women through running and education.
Through local 261 women’s only running clubs, professionally developed education programs, communication platforms, and social events, the 261 Fearless network empowers and unites women around the world, breaking down the barriers of geography, and creating safe spaces for women runners of all abilities. We truly believe that we are stronger, bolder, healthier, and FEARLESS TOGETHER.
Funds raised through the Boston Marathon Official Charity Program will benefit the 261 Education Program and local 261 Clubs, providing them with ongoing education and outreach, in turn helping women to become empowered through running. Thanks to substantial fundraising through the Boston Marathon, our Boston area clubs will receive special financial support.
261 Fearless Inc. is both grateful and proud to be an official Charity Partner of the 2024 Boston Marathon, and we welcome both invitational and time-qualified runners on our Charity Team.
For 261 Fearless Charity Team members, the experience is more than running a marathon. We provide a supportive environment the moment runners join the team, and far beyond the finish line. Fundraising and training support, monthly team calls, team gear, and Marathon weekend festivities that extend both before and after the race are all features of Team 261 Fearless membership. You are not just a runner for 261 Fearless, you become part of the extended 261 Fearless global network that is empowering women all around the world!
