Would you like to run the Greenbelt Challenge for free? Can you maintain a consistent pace for a half marathon? Are you willing to motivate others throughout the run to achieve their running goal?
We are currently seeking interest from members who would like to pace at the Greenbelt Challenge on the 22nd April 2018. Ideally you have some experience as a pacer before, however, as long as you have had experience running the requested distance a number of times in the past we will consider you.
If this describes you & you are interested in being one of the pacers at the Greenbelt Challenge, please contact [email protected] expressing which event you would like to be considered for and the time that you can run this event in comfortably (ideally should be at least 10mins slower than the most recent time you ran this distance). If you were not planning on running in the Greenbelt Challenge, we are also seeking interest for Pacers for our other events throughout the year.
