A lot of people I know must RACE whenever hiking.
This "leader" needs to understand that a hike will accomodate
the SLOWEST person. If they are unwilling to hike at this
speed, they should not lead.
Our crew (BSA) went to Philmont. They were all "power hikers". MILES
are important. The crew chief from Philmont started the hike and
many zoomed ahead. He stopped them, explained what a hike is and
how it is done, and started again.
What they found out is that everyone kept together as a unit,
and no-one was worn out after 10 miles.
This needs to be explained "to the leader". If She is unwilling to follow
directions, then she need not be "the leader".
She also either did not realize it or didn't care about the people
at the end of the line.
