Your race... your pace!
We have another fantastic team of pacers this year. Some are old friends who have paced at previous events, but we're also delighted to welcome a few new pacers this year.

Why should I run with an official pacer?
The Mash Direct Belfast City Half Marathon Pacing Team are experienced marathon runners who will encourage you throughout the 13.1 miles and help you meet your finisher time goal. It is also a great opportunity to run with a like-minded group and make your run more enjoyable.
Which pacer should I run with?
You should choose a pace that best reflects your training and ability level, allowing you to run at a comfortable pace throughout the marathon. If you can't decide between two paces (for example 2:00 and 2:15), it is recommended that you start with the slower pace as you can always pick it up later in the race.
How do I find my pacer at the Start Line?
There will be designated start areas for specific finish times and you can follow the signage to these positions.
