BECOMING A PACER
Pace Group Leaders will be expected to run at an even pace for the entire distance of their event and to offer encouragement and information along the way. Keeping to your allocated pace and communication between yourself and the athletes within your Pace Group is extremely important if everyone is to continue as a group.
The following Pace Groups will be running in the Marathon in 2014:
Pacer Group Leaders will need to be available for an information meeting in the Pacers room at the MCG on Saturday October 11.
We will assist you prior to the event with a list of instructions and a pacing schedule / strategy outline.
The Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival will provide:
- Free Entry
- Race Singlet or Tshirt
Applicants ARE NOT guaranteed that they will be given a pacing role, so please be aware of the entry cut off times and field limits if you have not already been accepted.
RUNNING WITH A PACER ON RACE DAY
If you are a participating athlete and wish to join a Pace Group, please look out for the Pace Group signs at the Start Area on race day
- you do not need to register your interest.
- All Pace Group Leaders will be easily identifiable in event gear with their particular pace time clearly visible.
