What is a Pace Group Leader?
A Pace Group Leader (PL) is one of the most valuable resources to our training program participants and an "on the road" representative of Fleet Feet. As a PL, 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 PL 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 training for half marathons, full marathons, and other racing events.
