Sponsored by Arla our team of pacers on the day will be pacing at 5 minute intervals between 40 minutes and 1 hour 15 minutes. They will be wearing backpack with flags displaying the finish time they are pacing, and will assemble in the correct area according to predicted times. Use them to hit your personal targets and be sure to say thanks once you’ve crossed the line!
Tom Thomas 40min - I've been running and racing since I was a kid and I love sharing miles and my passion with other runners. There's nothing more wonderful than achieving your aim; whether that is to finish, PB or just get out and enjoy it. I'm really looking forward to helping some people hopefully smash their goals. Remember, the key is working hard but making sure to smile at least once every mile!
Shane Grace 40min - Pacing is my way of giving something back to the running community but in truth I get just as much out of it as you, if not more. My advice to you would be do the training, arrive prepared, resist the urge to sprint off at the start, and allow me to see you through to a new PB. Enjoy the ride!
Andrew Ellis 45min - I'm Andrew from St Theresa's Athletic Club. I started running 5 years ago and I've now completed more than 180 parkruns and progressed to 10ks, 10 milers and most recently a half marathon. I really enjoy pacing and I've done plenty of it at parkruns and other races around Yorkshire - recently Dewsbury 10k and Bradford 10k. I'm really looking forward to helping as many people as possible to meet their target at the Lincoln 10k. See you on race day.
Glen Johnson 45min - Hi I’m Glen, I run with and for St Theresas based in Leeds doing all kinds of distances. I am very much looking forward to Lincoln and I’m very much hoping to get you around in a sub 45 time (just). See you soon.
Dan Ayres 50min - Hi I’m Dan and I’ve been a runner for 6 years now and joined St Theresa’s running club 2 years ago. The club and its members have inspired me to help others achieve and it’s my second time pacing this race, so you’re in good hands. If you want a PB come and find me - good luck!
Nick Wealleans 50min - I’ve been running properly - i.e. without a football - for 7 years now and I’m still not sure I like it. What I do like, however, is the buzz when you finish, even better if you PB. I’ve done a lot of pacing over the years and I’m very much look forward to Lincoln and helping some people to hopefully achieve their goals. Come find me, I’ll have jelly babies. See you on race day.
Jo Loftus 55min - Hi there! I'm looking forward to being your 55 minute pacer. I Hope your training has gone well and you are fired up for a great day. Please come say hello before the start. Together we can do this! Believe in yourself!
Anna Milburn 55min - I've been running for about 5 years with two Leeds running clubs and have raced a variety of distances. I also love parkrun and being part of the running community and pacing is my way of giving back. I enjoy encouraging people on route and seeing people achieve their goals. Come and have a chat before the race to ease any pre-run nerves.
Denise McGeachy 60min - The thing I love most about running is that no matter who you are, no matter what your age or ability, every time you put your trainers on you have the opportunity to achieve something, a faster run or a longer distance and the more you do it, the more you can achieve. Being asked to be a pacer is a real honour. I’m delighted that on race day I can do my bit to help competitors achieve their goals – If you see me please say hi.
Cat McGuire 60min - I’m Cat, I’ve been running for about 15 years. I started running while at university and someone once told me I’d never be a runner - challenge accepted! I’ve completed every distance, including 3 marathons and a lot of triathlons too and most memorably a half iron man. I love pacing because it combines 2 things that I enjoy - running and chatting!
Anna Sharrot 1hr 5min - I have been running for about 6 years and am a member of St Theresa’s Athletic Club. I have paced many large 10k events as well as pacing at my local parkrun. I have raced all distances from 5k up to marathon, so I know exactly what it’s like to work towards a goal and that sense of achievement when you finally smash it! I am really excited to be part of the pacing team again for 2019 and look forward to helping others achieve their goals.
Shaun Loftus 1hr 5min - Hi my name is Shaun I am a member of St Theresas AC running club in Leeds. Pacing is my passion! From parkrun to marathon- I love being a part of helping runners to achieve their individual goals whatever they may be. Looking forward to meeting you, running with you and hopefully enjoying the race
Violet Gill 1hr 10min - I started running about 6 years ago after stopping smoking when I found out I was going to be a Grandma. My first race was the York 10k, I love all the people I have met through running. Have a great day!
Paula Watson 1hr 10min - Hi I'm Paula and I run for St Theresa's AC in Leeds. I started to feel the run buzz in 2016 after a few failed attempts but now I never look back only forwards. It's helped me overcome so many obstacles & given me a new lease of life - now I want to help other people achieve their goals too!
I can’t wait to meet you all & support you at my favourite race! Bring that zing & see you at the start line!
Bekki Wheatley 1hr 15min - Hi I’m Bekki, don’t judge me on my leggings. I have been known to talk a lot so use that as motivation to pull away from me to a pb! Looking forward to helping you round Lincoln!
Stacey Goodyear 1hr 15min - Hi, I'm Stacey. I started running a long time ago to keep fit and lose a bit of weight. Then in 2013 I did my first parkrun. This led me on to joining a running club and making lots of new friends, as well as entering races up to half marathon distance. One day I hope to run a full marathon!
