Volunteer Pacer | Last 10 Miles Run

October 22, 2023 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am

NY Flyers Last 10 Miles Supported Long Run

When: Sunday, October 22nd, 2023

Who: Members and Non-members

Organizer: New York Flyers Running Club

Questions: contact

Details: Come out and support our team by volunteering to be a pacer at our Last 10 Miles of the NYC Marathon Training Run. Please note: we would like our pacers to do the full 10 miles.
PACE GROUPS: We need at least one pacer for each group starting at 8:00 minutes/mile through 12:30 minutes/mile at 30 second intervals. If you would like to be a Pacer for a slower Pace (or a faster one), for a Walking Pace or a Run/Walk Pace, please contact us.

If you have never paced, you will be paired with an experienced partner. This is a great opportunity to lead a group of runners and enjoy the camaraderie of group and the gratitude of other runners. Remember that when you pace, you should choose a pace at least 30 seconds slower than your own training pace to ensure that you can keep the pace for the length of the run.

As a pacer, you have group members relying on you to keep to the designated pace, so wanting to go faster because everything feels good during the run is a feeling you will need to ignore - you need to keep the pace at all times (unless hurt or exhausted, of course). Pacing is a wonderful experience - if you've never done it before, you will be hooked, just like many of our longstanding pacers are.   

For details about the run, please see the EVENT PAGE

For VIEWING only, is a spreadsheet showing the available empty slots for PACERS. You can then sign up below and tell us which pace you prefer - based on the empty slots shown on the spreadsheet. Thank you!
