Fly Girl Collective

“If you want go fast, go alone. If you want go far, go together” – African Proverb

As part of our mission to improve representation in fitness spaces, Fly Girl Collective helps black and brown women discover the power of exercise through group training and support for running and endurance events.

Take a peek at our pilot project with The Big Half and New Balance, where a group of  beginner runners trained for their first major race in 2019). For each season, we train together for a specific race or goal.

We’re now taking applications for Season 5, which runs from 24 May-22nd August 2021! We’ll be training for The Big Half Marathon in London.
