Earn Your RunLead Badge Today!
Our program goals for the RunLead Badge are to:
- Provide knowledge to people interested in being a community-based RunLead, run mentor, or pace group leader.
- Provide education for organized groups in need of trained RunLeads, mentors, and pace group leaders.
- Provide an overview of safety concepts for managing run groups, including managing group dynamics, behaviors, inclusivity, and more.
- Provide background knowledge to inspire RunLead Badge holders to take the next step and become an RRCA Certified Run Coach.
Individuals who lead or plan to lead group runs for their clubs, run specialty stores, gyms, or in other group settings are the intended audience for the RunLead Badge, along with people who serve as coaches, mentors, or pace leaders for group runs and events. These individuals may have experience running or leading groups, or they may be new to the task.
