Founded in 2015, the Black Toes is a global running team that is free to join and open to runners of all ages and capabilities. Our teammates include former national team competitors and runners new to the sport, but we all train hard to compete at our highest levels. HTFU is our creed. With members spread across 11 time zones, we often train alone, but we stay connected through our team’s social media and training platforms. Each year, we converge on a marathon selected by our members. The Black Toes have competed together in Berlin, Boston, Frankfurt, Prague, Reykjavik, Toronto and Yorkshire as well as numerous local, national and international races of shorter distances. We do not lack for genuine comraderie and support.
