Pacers

We have pacers at Maribyrnong parkrun on the first Saturday of every month.

Each pacer aims to run at an even pace and finish as closely as possible to a target time (ideally a few seconds under the target time).

In odd-numbered months - January, March, May, July, September and November - the target times are 21 mins, 23 mins, 25 mins, 27 mins, 29 mins, 31 mins, 33 mins and 35 mins.

In even-numbered months - February, April, June, August, October and December - the target times are 20 mins, 22 mins, 24 mins, 26 mins, 28 mins, 30 mins, 32 mins and 34 mins.

To be a pacer:

  • You should select a target time that's comfortably within your ability
  • Unless you're an experienced pacer, you should use a GPS watch (Garmin, TomTom, Nike, Suunto, etc.) or a smartphone with a running app (Strava, Runkeeper, etc.) - something that can accurately tell you your pace while you're running (ideally you want average pace / lap pace, not just current pace)

If you're able to help out and be a pacer, please email maribyrnonghelpers@parkrun.com.
