Do you have experience running or walking and have a passion for sharing your knowledge and experiences to help others achieve their goals?

We are currently looking for experienced runners or walkers to become one of our famous Mentors for our No Boundaries & WalkCrew Training Program.

What is a Mentor?
A Mentor is one of the most valuable resources to our training program participants and an "on the road" representative of Fleet Feet. As a Mentor, your main responsibilities include: providing support and guidance to your group, offering positive energy and a positive attitude to the group, provide on road safety support, keeping an assigned approximate pace while running, and educating participants about the benefits that Fleet Feet has to offer. A Mentor is a training tool for the participants for the fact that you can provide personal experiences, wisdom, and other general tips when it comes to running, training, health, wellness, and other racing events.
