The Pat Carroll Online & Onland Pacers assist participants to their time goals in the Gold Coast Marathon, ASICS Half Marathon and Southern Cross University 10km Run. Pacers are experienced runners who aim to maintain an even pace throughout the race with the goal to have you finishing slightly faster (30 seconds or so) than your goal time.
For easy visibility, the pace runners will be carrying a goal time high amongst the starting runners. Each pace runner will also wear a singlet with the goal time marked on the back. It’s important to know the start zone your pace runner will be in and ensure you choose the same start zone when you enter so you can start the race near your pace runner.
2019 pace runner information coming soon.
