2018 Gold Coast Marathon
Pat Carroll Online & Onland Pace Runners
Pace Runner Application
This is what Gary Mayor had to say following his experience as a Pat Carroll Online & Onland pace runner:
Just a special thanks for giving me the opportunity to be a 1hr 40 min pace runner in the years Gold Coast Half Marathon.
It was another memorable occasion, the highlight for me was the numerous people that came up to me after the event and congratulated me on my consistent pacing. I didn’t take the balloons off for a good half hour because I was really enjoying all the adulation.
It’s a very satisfying feeling to have helped these athletes achieve their goals, and I look forward to doing the same next year.
To adequately carry out the pace runner role you’ll need to be able to comfortably run the pace you’ve nominated for. You also need to be prepared to offer encouragement and motivate runners in your pack.
The Gold Coast Marathon will cover the costs of entry fees for all pacers.
All pace runners will receive a singlet.
I’ll be advising all applicants if they’ve been successful or not, by no later early March/prior to early bird entry cut off.
