Who is a mentor?

Apart from the professional coaching that is available from the Dallas Running Club, we form buddy teams with runners who have successfully trained and completed the Strides of Hope program at the chapter. Mentors motivate and initiate first timers into the sport of running and help with the challenges of fundraising. Mentors are ‘casual coaches’ who are also available during unscheduled periods of training to answer any questions.
