Vancouver USA Marathon Pacers Needed – Sunday, June 21

Feel like making your weekend long run a community service event? Then consider pacing the full or half marathon in Vancouver this June. Team Red Lizard is going to be providing pace teams for 9 pace times in the full marathon (range from 3:00 to 5:00 finish time) and 7 pace times in the half (1:30 to 3:00 finish times). Whether you opt to pace the full or the half, all pacers will only be responsible for pacing a half marathon – so we will have 2 groups for each time in the full, but half marathon pacers will run the entire distance.

If you haven’t ever paced before, it is a truly rewarding experience. The weekend long run is a staple for most runners, but to be able to get in your long run while helping other runners meet their goal takes that run to a whole new level. There is a reason that some club members have been leading pace groups for more than a decade – including our fearless Pace Team Director, Tim Swietlik.

June 21 might seem like a ways off, but it will be here before we know it – and we have a lot of pacer slots to fill. Slots are first come-first serve, so mark your calendar and claim your pace slot now.

Visit this thread on the message board for all the details and to see what pace slots are still available. And if you don’t want to register to use the message board, you can always email Tim at imarunr@comcast.net
