Run Leader Mentors supporting new coaches

Have you heard of Run Leader Mentors? They are qualified leaders and coaches who have been trained to provide support to Run Leaders involved with the RunTogether programme. They are spread across England and are always on hand to support whether via email or through a group visit.

We have recently joined with a group of twenty experienced Mentors who have also qualified in the Coach In Running Fitness (CiRF) certificate to offer extra assistance to current CiRF candidates. The Mentors have undertaken a course led by CiRF tutor, Chris Warnock and are now able to offer supplementary support and guidance. The initiative was directly developed as a result of feedback from course participants who suggested that some additional guidance as they are progressing through would be greatly received.

Mentors have been tasked with:

  • Identifying strengths and areas for improvement
  • Providing support for reflective practice
  • Offering supplementary information
  • Assisting with remote video assessments

Not only will these twenty new CiRF Run Leader Mentors be able to support RunTogether groups and coaches, but they will also be able to extend their guidance to England Athletics affiliated clubs.
