Running can be a team sport, so I want to help others work together to achieve goals and give good vibes back to the running community that I have received for many years. I love the emotion you see in people when running- the hurt, the smiles, the joy and tears while living their dreams.

Running is my way of relaxing and forgetting about the stresses of everyday life. Many runners put in countless hours of hard work to reach their target time and I believe there’s no better way to share my passion for running than by helping these runners achieve those goals.

As the great man Eliud Kipchoge says, “no human is limited.” It is great to see runners pushing their limits and chasing their goals in different events. As a passionate runner, sportsperson, running coach, father and PE Teacher, I understand the importance of guidance and see great value in helping others achieve their goals.

“100% of an individual is nothing compared to 1% of a team” (Eliud Kipchoge). To be part of a team of pacers and help people push themselves beyond their barriers is excellent. I know the importance of a pacer role (as a competitor in these events) so to have this opportunity is incredible.

It never ceases to amaze me how runners are time focused and have a desire to run a personal best. I’ve paced at the Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon for 15+ years and to know that I have played a role in helping a fellow runner achieve a goal is incredibly rewarding.

Pacing gives me the opportunity to help fellow runners to reach their goal time, teaches some valuable lessons of running and life and makes new friends. Being an athlete, volunteering helps me give back to the sport in a positive way.

I love that running can be whatever you make it – tough, easy, social, competitive, a means to have some peace and quiet or a way to connect with others. I’m so excited to pace in 2020 and I look forward to the course, the smiles, the high-fives and most of all, I look forward to encouraging runners and assisting them to achieve their running goals.

Run with me and I will help you achieve your very best. Get ready as there’s sure to be some pain, sweat and a bit of hard work BUT I can guarantee plenty of laughs, fun, huge smiles and high fives as we cross the finish line knowing you have given it your all. Can’t wait to see you there!

There’s something unique that running brings to my life, the challenge, the community and sense of feeling free every time I run. I’ve been volunteering as a PCRG pacer for many years, it’s my way of giving back to the running community that gave so much to me when I was racing.

Being able to pace for this event allows me to contribute back to the running community. I enjoy running as it allows me to be with nature and around people of the same passion as me. Pacing allows me to help those around me to achieve their running goals.

Over the past 20 years, I’ve run to explore, to train, to race and to escape. Running has been the one constant in my life, wherever I am or whatever the pace. Being a pacer lets me give back to running and the running community and share the love.

I love supporting people achieve their goals, the atmosphere of running in a pack and the hum of hundreds of running shoes pounding the roads in the early hours of the morning. Being a pacer is such a treat- it’s the best feeling cheering and running someone through tough moments.
