The 1st QCIM last year was very memorable for me. I was chosen to be one of the pacers for the 21K with the target time of 2:45 and it was my first time to do the job.
This year QCIM, I was asked to be in the league of pacers again but this time for the Full Marathon.
Pacer duty is very a tough job. A pacer job is to run in a steady kilometers. We have to make sure that the runners whose running in our wings meet the target time.

4:15:00 Eric Socrates / Michelle Estuar F

6:00:00 Dwane David / Robert Rosario/ JJ Layug/ Allen Gasper
2:00:00 Jixee Lagunda/Brando Losaria/Nick Geaga

2:30:00 Running Diva/Roelle Punzalan/Raymund Canta
2:45:00 Neil Barrios/Marvin Opulencia
3:00:00 Erick Alabastro/RJ Bumanglag
Each pacer will be holding a short 2 feet handled flag instead of balloons which is color-coded and the finish times indicated on each banner which corresponds to their target times. Each target time will have two (2) or more pacers. The "Lead Pacer" will be setting the pace and the "Sweeper" will be on watching and offer support and encouragement to runners who may be dropping off the pace.
The gun start for 42Km will be at 4:30am. So, for those running the Full Marathon they are advice to be at corral before the gun fired off and to seek for their pace marker. And for the 21K, you will be sent off after 30 mins later at 5:00am.
Goodluck!!! and See you on the Road!!!

Adination of Runners phase 1 done! For those who are unaware of what aNR is? adiNation of Runners started in May 2009 in
What we have accomplished in Phase 1?
Here are the testimonies of aNR-BHS.
"aNR helped me have a "scientific" approach to my runs. Before I just run without any other knowledge about it but ever since joining aNR I learned different techniques on how to improve my running. The Team Leaders being an Ultramarathoners or Triathletes also gave me so inspiration that I can achieve those things in the future." - Mark Leonard Manalo
"When I joined the aNR training. This is where I found out about training from not only a single type of training that there was a couple of different training in running (from circuit to speed to name a few). It made me more prepared to run my first Marathon this year, to learn what to expect in a run and best of all less injury when I found out about your stretching techniques. Now I approach running differently it has more purpose and prepares me to set new goals every time we train and run." - James Rosca
"Running on the treadmill became unbearable and utterly boring, so I sought out for running buddies. I found adiNation of Runners BHS. But I got more than just company. I found expert coaches, dedicated runners, and cheerful friends. - Francis Fermin
"Before joining ANR I didn't have any formal training or joined any running clinic. My goal every run is just to cross the finish line; I was also not familiar with some running terms; I only get to understand some when I started joining the running clinic of Adidas. At ANR I was able to get myself familiarized with different terms and how I will apply them during training. I could also remember my time with Natures Valley RunRio Leg2 was 2hrs 39mins 21secs. I run another 21km at Rexona and all the hard work paid off and I had good PR there of 2hrs 16mins 37secs." - John Tigno
