Bondensee Frauenlauf, Vorarlberg, Austria Website »
Join Kathrine at the Bodensee Frauenlauf – one of the biggest women’s run in middle Europe – together with our 261 Clubs from Austria, Germany and Switzerland. The course goes along the beautiful Bodensee – just on the triangle of Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

Jun 2, 2017 –
Jun 4, 2017

This is an official 261 Fearless Partner event, and Kathrine has been the guest celebrity since it’s inception. She will be at the expo on June 2 & 3 signing the new edition of Marathon Woman, and will be the pre-race dinner speaker at Betty’s restaurant on June 3, and Number 1 hugger on race day, June 4. Specific times and locations TBA.

TCS New York City Marathon, New York City, NY United States
Kathrine is 1974 winner of the race and last ran it in 1975. She plans to run again, 32 year later, and this time she is running with a small contingent of 261 Fearless charity runners. She was inducted into the New York Road Runners Hall of Fame 2 years ago. Kathrine has done the TV broadcast of the race for 28 years, and therefore has never run the race when it is in the streets of NYC. In her day, it was all in Central Park. She will be at the expo and at press conferences; those times and locations TBA.
