261 Fearless

261 is the bib number that I wore in the 1967 Boston Marathon. An angry race director tried to rip it off of me because I was a woman in a men’s only race. I finished that 26.2-mile marathon and equality in the women’s running movement was launched. Now ‘261’ has come to mean FEARLESS, not just in sports, but in life. ‘261 Fearless’ is a global empowering movement that connects women though running and walking with events, clubs, training, and inspiring merchandise. Join us! Be 261 Fearless!
