The pace runnners
Pace runners run the race at a pre-determined pace which they may adjust slightly at different points in the race to take account of the changes in terrain.
If you are a new runner with a specific target time in mind or you are looking to beat your personal best time, our Pace Crew will be there to help you achieve your goal.
Our Pace Runners are also a familiar sight at our monthly training runs, where they support runners in their progress towards race day.
If you'd like to be considered for the 2019 Pace Crew (half/full marathon) please contact our Pace Crew Manager, Dave firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to our 2018 Pace Runners (below). Our 2019 Pace Crew will be announced in summer 2019.
The route is renowned for being fast and largely flat – more than 70% of our runners achieve PBs!
