Pace Runners

If you think you won’t be able to run at a predetermined speed, several pace runners aiming for different goal times and paces can help you realize your goals.
We choose all of our pace runners very carefully, all of them are experienced runners and they are able to surpass their own interests and do everything for the runners who are following them and trust them. They think instead of the runners, check the time regularly and encourage others.
You will be able to recognize them easily as you will see their beach flags (with their goal race pace and goal finish time) attached to their backs from a great distance.

The pace runners’ 10 km planned finish times:
  • 50 minutes finish time (5:00 min/km pace) at an even pace
  • 1 hour finish time (6:00 min/km pace) at an even pace
  • 1 hour 10 minutes finish time (7:00 min/km pace) at an even pace
