We've been pacing runners round UK races - including the London Marathon - since 1998. Here's where to find us in 2010
What?! You don't know about our pacing groups? Then you've never had the luxury of forgetting all about responsibility in a race or training run, and simply following one of the experienced Runner's World pacers to hit your target pace.
We take care of the pace estimates and the mile splits; you put in the training and turn up on the day for a great run. The groups vary from sub-3:00 marathon pace to run-walk at the Virgin London Marathon, so there's a group for everyone. All you need is a race number, so make sure you enter the races well in advance
. It's a friendly, flexible arrangement, and you don't have to run with us all the way.
The pacers are experienced Runner's World staff and running friends; many of them have been helping runners hit their time targets since we first paced the London Marathon in 1998.
Our main pacing teams are geared towards the Virgin London Marathon - we have six pairs of pace leaders there. We also offer you a chance to test your pace and see how our pacing groups work at various build-up races and training runs throughout the spring. Look out for the Runner's World stand at these events too - your chance to come and chat to the team before and after the race.
Find out more in our pacing Q+A or visit our Virgin London Marathon pacing page. See you there!
PLEASE could the Pacers hold their Boards up high throughout the race, if poss.
The last race I rang the Pacer let the Board hang from his shoulders & thus, after a few seconds, I could not see it . It was therefore no use to anybody.
