Leaders/Coaches

Phidippides Leaders and Coaches are all unpaid volunteers that give their time to help make Phidippides Track Club a success. While we don’t have a formally elected Board of Directors, our Leaders are an ad hoc group that each contribute their time for specific roles within the club. Most of the Leaders have been Phidippides members for many years and typically meet every month or so and several times in the off season to plan and coordinate for the club.
