Are you looking for a way to give back to the running community? Have you always wanted to help others reach their running or walking goals? Fleet Feet Myrtle Beach is currently accepting applications for Mentor positions for both our 5K and Half Marathon training program. Mentors play an important role in ensuring a great experience for our training program participants.
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?
A Mentor is an invaluable resource to our training program participants and an "on the road" representative of Fleet Feet Sports Myrtle Beach. Mentors attend every group workout throughout a training program to provide support. Their main responsibilities include:
- offering positive energy and a positive attitude to the group
- promoting safety and providing support during workouts
- keeping an assigned approximate pace or interval while walking or running
- running alongside participants and making sure everyone is accounted for
- educating participants about the benefits, products and solutions that Fleet Feet Sports offers
