Fleet Feet Mentor Application

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 Training Program Mentor? We are currently looking for run and run/walk mentors for our ongoing training groups ranging from 5K to the 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?
A Mentor is an invaluable resource to our training program participants and an "on the road" representative of Fleet Feet Greenville.  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 offers
  • calling on their past personal experiences to provide knowledge, advice, and general tips when it comes to training and living healthy


  • Has experience running the group distance they wish to mentor
  • Can motivate and inspire others in a positive manner
  • Has completed at least 2 races at your desired distance
  • Is able to attend 80% of all twice-weekly training workouts
  • Will relay critical information, suggestions and concerns to the Head Coach
