Except for unique circumstances, RunDoyen does not believe in replacing an existing High-School coach for a private coach. At a younger age, we believe that a team environment is important for overall development. However, we also recognize that most successful runners have learned and found inspiration from many different people throughout their career which is why we love helping High-School Runners through what we call “Mentorships“.
Specifically for High School runners, we offer special discounted rate Mentorship packages through Alan Webb and Jess Tonn. Each package includes four 30-minute video chat sessions to talk with either Alan or Jess for general guidance, tips, advice and motivation in a way that is supplemental but does not contradict any existing coach. These sessions can be scheduled whenever needed.
If you feel that you have a strong connection with them after your initial free consultation, you can go ahead and purchase the mentorship package in order to continue working with them. Here are the links to purchase:
Alan is one of the most accomplished runners in US history. After becoming the fastest ever High School Miler, he went on to break the overall American Record in the Mile, running 3:46.91. Alan has a very calm and mature approach in helping other young runners develop and find their potential.

Jess continues to find success at every level and distance that she has competed in as an athlete. As a Footlocker finalist, Jess was one of the top prep athletes in the country who went on to become a 7-time All-American at Stanford University. Now as a professional, Jess has steadily developed and moved up in distance to become one of the top US 10k runners. Jess has an energetic personality to help runners stay motivated and find long-term progression.
