The pace runnners

We are pleased to announce that once again runners of the MBNA Chester Marathon will be supported, both at the monthly training runs and on race day, by our Pace Runners, sponsored by The Big Let Company.

Our Pace Crew totals 19, with Pace Runners targeting every 15 minute time slot from 3 hours to 5 hours. 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 Big Let Pace Runners are also a familiar sight at our monthly training runs, where they support runners in their progress towards race day.

The Big Let Pace Crew for the 2017 marathon will be announced a few months before race day.
