Volunteering to be a pacer
The only pacers i've heard about in VLM are the RW ones. The editor Andy Dixon is one of them, so i'd hazard an educated guess that if you contacted him you'd be able to discuss any possibilities. Think the email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Not sure if there are any other pacers from other organisations out there, one way to find out would be to contact the race director, David Bedford.
RW don't have a 3.15 pace group, why don't you set up an unofficial one of say 10 or so runners to all meet up at the start, i would love to be paced round having run round with the RW 3.30 pacer who got me round in 3.29.27
lets say a donation to charity of your choice and free beer in chandos for yourself from anybody who wants pacing
oh yea you will have to hold one of those stick things up until the crowds thin out a bit count me in if this becomes a goer.
count me in, hoping iam on red start will let you know later
Scot, I've been thinking along similar lines because of a current knee injury. Still touch and go whether I'll toe the line in April but the a PB's virtually out of the question if I am there so I was thinking of putting myself forward (unofficially) as a sub-3:00 pacer. We'll see...
Anyway, have you offered your services over on the 3:15 thread? I'm sure you'd be worth a few pints of Sam Smith's over there.
