The Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon will once again facilitate official pacers on race day after successfully introducing them in 2010.

**2018 HALF MARATHON PACERS TO BE CONFIRMED SOON**

Working closely with governing body Athletics Northern Ireland, the organisers have sourced timing pacers for 3 hours, 3 hours 15 minutes, 3 hours 30 minutes, 3 hours 45 minutes, 4 hours, 4 hours and 15 minutes and 4 hours and 30 minutes.  All 2018 Pacers will be announced in the forthcoming weeks (January).

General secretary of Athletics Northern Ireland and Board Member of the Belfast City Marathon Ltd, John Allen said;

"Last year's pacer scheme proved very popular. We are always keen to do what we can do to improve the experience of runners in the race and the pacer scheme not only helps runners achieve their target but also adds to the camaraderie of the day."

 

We're delighted to announce the following experienced Pacing team will be guiding you to the finish line on 7th May 2018!
