Mentoring is a dynamic, much needed method of passing knowledge, experience, positive attitude, personal value and quality ethics from the mentor to the mentoree. Mentoring is also an invaluable way for the mentor to re-invigorate their confidence and value. Mentoring is different from coaching (which TurboStars League also promotes), and is a far more personal relationship. The TurboStars team strongly believes that running does not have to be a solo or highly competitive sport - we believe that the spiritual and physically demanding challenges of running can be shared and enjoyed while learning to love life and care for the ones around you. Having a role model and some practical guidance is something we all need, no matter what phase of life your in or what challenges you are facing. TurboStars League, through turbostars.org, is fully supportive of, and a valuable resource for, local mentoring programs. We want our Mentors and Mentoree’s to feel like they are a part of the family - a family that deeply cares for, and protects, individuality, high quality global citizenship traits, curiosity and a “pay-it-forward” attitude.Medium and long-distance running courses provide an opportunity for bonding, unlike any other sport, and TurboStars League is very proud to be able to promote this valuable Life Tool.
