We are currently seeking interest from members who would like to pace at the Adelaide Marathon Festival on the 27th May 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 Adelaide Marathon Festival, 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).
