Mark Time. Keep Run Going!!

Is QCIM your first Full Marathon or your first Half Marathon? Do you have your target time?

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.

Now, have you decided what's your target time in the coming QCIM? If not, Meet your Pacers, Your Marker.

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!!!
