Welcome back to the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Half Marathon Pacing Team Natalie Bowbanks
01 September 2019
Natalie Bowbanks from Tandragee is a member of Craigavon Lakers Running Club and will be pacing a sub 1 hour 45 minutes on Sunday 22nd September.
"My name is Natty and I am from Tandragee County Armagh. I am a member of Craigavon Lakers running club. Our club was formed in 2014 by a few of us who regularly meet up for training runs. It has grown bigger than we ever expected and is the best club in the world!
To date I have ran 37 half marathons, 63 marathons and 5 ultra marathons. I really enjoy pacing and I find it extremely rewarding and fun. I have previously paced the Newry Marathon, Belfast City Marathon twice and the Belfast City Half Marathon last year and along the way I have made some great friends. I’m absolutely delighted to be pacing 1:45 this time.
If you’re hoping to run your first half marathon I would encourage you to follow your training program and really stick to it as best you can. Also if you can train with a friend it does help with motivation and the company is always good for long runs. And most of all keep a positive mental attitude. There’s nothing we can’t do if we set our minds to it!"
Natalie joins our 2019 team of Half Marathon pacers ranging from 1 hour 30 - 2 hours 15. For more detail please click HERE.
