The Louisville Distance Project is an arm of Fleet Feet Sports Louisville. It was created to promote the sport of distance running in this city, enhance local running events, increase participation in the sport and train individuals of all abilities for distance events. Distance running is an amazing sport that offers immeasurable benefits and something we are incredibly passionate about at Fleet Feet Sports. There are three ways to get involved in the Louisville Distance Project:
Louisville Distance Project training groups are the premier distance training programs in Louisville. By partnering with local health professionals, product vendors and LDP Ambassadors our training groups provide an unparalleled training experience. Whether you're a seasoned marathoner or looking to do the Louisville Triple Crown for the first time ever, these groups are designed to meet participants' needs and conquer their goals.
The main role of the LDP Ambassadors is to promote the sport of running and walking in Louisville. These individuals are high energy, love the sport of running and love to share that love with everyone they meet. They are all speeds from walking to running! Their main responsibilities are to be a support team of mentors for training programs, volunteer at local races and events and spread the word about events, promotions and races. While this is a group of volunteers, there are many great perks to being a part of this awesome team.
The LDP Elite are a team of local runners who represent the best of the best at local and regional races. From the track to the road to the trails, these individuals are some of the best at what they do and regularly are in contention for age group and overall victories. In addition to perks and incentives, the Ambassadors and Elite team are co-sponsored by Kentucky Sports Chiropractic and receive the regular expertise of Dr. Kyle Bowling and his associates.
