I am a 43 year old primary school teacher with 4 children and a passion for running. I run for Shepshed running club, and have completed races from 1 mile to 69 miles!
I have completed several marathons in under 3 hours, and numerous 10k's with a PB of 36:24. I particularly enjoy pacing others to achieve their goals, and enjoy helping people to see the benefits of running at a consistent pace.
I hope to help many runners hit their personal targets on the day of the race.

I only took up running in 2012 when overweight and struggling to chase my 2 year old around, a throw away comment to the Mother in Law 'I could do that' whilst watching her do the York 10km was grasped upon by my wife and the gauntlet was set. I struggled to find motivation to run without a football to chase but stumbled across the quite wonderful parkrun scene and never looked back. I've now done things I swore I would never do, joined a running club, ran numerous races over very varied terrain and distance, parkrun toured all over the country and more importantly now actually enjoy running. I won't win a race anytime soon but I have my own targets to hit and in the meantime if I can help someone hit their's, happy days!
Martin Styles - 55 mins
My name is Martin Styles from Nottingham and I have been running for over 20 years. I initially starting running due to advice from my doctor and running soon became part of my daily life. My main achievements include running the Great North Run, Triathlon and the London Marathon, and raising over £2,000 for Diabetes UK in the memory of my late father. I paced for the Nottingham 10km last year (sub 60 mins) for the first time and loved every minute of it. My current goals this year are to inspire more people into running and help people smash their PBs on event day. Good Luck everyone. 'DREAM, BELIEVE, ACHEIVE!'....

Hi I’m Shaun. I'm a member of St. Theresa's athletics club in Leeds. I have dipped in and out of running for most of my adult life and have run most distances including a couple of marathons. I discovered a love for Parkrun and in particular pacing these last few years. If you fancy aiming for a pb and leaving the pressure of pacing to me see you.

Hello, my name is Shirley, and I am your 70 minute pacer. I am a member of Lincoln & District running club. I run purely for fun, to keep up with my running friends and to keep fit. I have run for many years, and think that the recent interest in running is fantastic. It is good to see all sorts of people out on the streets in groups or unaccompanied and enjoying what is, once you have bought a pair of shoes, a virtually free sport that can take you either to your local Parkrun, or all over the world taking place in races. I enjoy everything from Parkruns to half marathons. I paced last year at the Lincoln 10K and Lincoln half marathon, where I was delighted to finish within 20 seconds of allocated time!

Hi I'm Jake, your sub 1:15 pacer. I started running about 3 years ago and have covered most distances from 5k to marathon. I'm training for a 53 mile ultra-marathon but still have time to enjoy the short stuff. I run for my local club, Witham Runners. I'm looking forward to seeing you all on the start line at Lincoln, my home race.
