Welcome back to the Pacing Team Neil Mercer

Welcome back to the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Half Marathon Pacing team...Neil Mercer!

Neil from Albertville Harriers will be pacing a sub 1 hour 30 minutes finish on Sunday 22nd September.

“Hi everyone, my name is Neil Mercer and I have lived in Belfast all my life.  I run with local club Albertville Harriers and this will be my 6th year running the Belfast City Half Marathon (3rd time pacing) so it's fair to say I know the route really well. 

I have also paced the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon for the last 3 years and have ran a total of 22 marathons.  Belfast City Half Marathon is a very flat and fast course so if you are looking a personal best this should be your first choice to get it.

For me if you are looking for a good time the key for any training plan should be consistency.  It's so easy to skip a training session, especially your long run but if you remain consistent with your training plan, this will give you your best opportunity to perform well on the day.

Hope to see you all on the day and good luck with your training.”

Neil joins our 2019 team of Half Marathon pacers ranging from 1 hour 30 - 2 hours 15.  For more detail please visit www.belfastcitymarathon.com/get-training/Pacer-Scheme
