Fall 2019 Mentor Application

The Fleet Feet Bloomington Mentor Team is a passionate group of runners who help people reach their goals of walking and running. Mentors play an important role in ensuring a great experience for our training program participants.  Do you have what it takes to be a Fleet Feet Mentor? We are currently looking for mentors for our Fall 5K and 10K training programs. 

What is a Mentor?

A Mentor is an invaluable resource to our training program participants and an "on the road" coach and representative of Fleet Feet Bloomington. Mentors attend every group workout throughout a training program to provide support to their group of participants.  Their main responsibilities include: offering positive energy and a positive attitude to the group, promoting safety, leading warm-ups and/or cool-downs, keeping an assigned approximate pace or interval, educating participants about the benefits and solutions that Fleet Feet offers and being an ambassador for Fleet Feet Bloomington.

  • Able to attend at least 75% of workouts
  • Can maintain a desired pace or interval based on a GPS watch
  • Committed to following the assigned workout and not conducting their own workout
  • Is not currently in-training for a specific goal or is willing to train before/after group workouts
