Interested in becoming a Mentor?

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 Sports Mentor? We are currently looking for run and run/walk mentors for our ongoing training groups ranging from one mile to the half marathon.

The Fleet Feet Sports Mentor Team is a passionate group of walk and run mentors who help people reach their goals of walking and running.

What is a Mentor?

  • Can maintain a desired pace or has access to GPS watch for pace guidance
  • Is a people person and has a desire to help others achieve their goals
