The Scholar Program
A mentor is indispensable. They generously pass on their knowledge and wisdom to you, so that you can apply that to your own craft in your own unique way. In creating The Scholar Program, we wanted to do our best to mimic the benefits of having a mentor in the new online world.
While this will never replace a physical mentor, our hope is to raise the game of coaches around the world by curating content in a way that allows you to digest bite size lessons and then get back to your coaching. In developing this program, we asked runners and coaches what they wanted. The concise answer is they want the curtain to be lifted; to have a free flowing discussion on training at the highest level; to know the training plans of our elite athletes, guides to training, recovery, and nutrition, or detailed thoughts on a trending training subject.
this void, we’ve created our Scholar program, which is our way of
helping to take coaching mentorship to the online world. Our goal is to
share as much information as possible, from the training our athletes
are doing, to coaching concepts we’ve learned. Consider it your
insiders look at coaching. You’ll get many of the same pamphlets and
guides that we send my professional runners. Every week we add new content.
We invite you to join us on
our coaching journey.
What you'll receive:
What we guarantee:
We will continue to develop and curate content that we think is
valuable for the coaching community. We promise to continually update
this content so that it is the best coaching resource on the planet.
You'll be the first to hear about our lessons in coaching high school,
college, and elite runners.
