+ This is a Fleet Feet Racing team, and as such there is a certain image we want team members to portray. Please be sure you are in agreement with the following before agreeing to participate:
+ Team members should be caring, selfless, willing to connect with and motivate other athletes of all abilities, and have a sense of humor.
+ While some of us win races (and this is certainly encouraged), we are generally not a group of elite runners focused on winning, but a friendly group of runners who enjoy running (and walkers who enjoy walking).
+ That said, we do welcome faster, “elite” runners but ask them to embrace the casual atmosphere of our team.
+ Fleet Feet aims to promote fitness within the community by coordinating fun events and by fitting people in comfortable footwear, bras, and apparel that will motivate them to continue exercising. You should understand the services that Fleet Feet provides. 1) We have a professional FIT process to fit running/walking shoes with the appropriate level of stability, 2) We also FIT inserts for shoes and sports bras. 3) We provide programs such as fun runs, races, training programs, educational seminars to the community.
+ We want to include all manner of athletes in our events and teams, therefore we ask that you help to portray an accommodating and fun atmosphere for the racing team.
+ Above all else, portray a positive image of yourself and the team. We reserve the right to remove anyone who cannot meet the above guidelines.
