Pace the Race

The D-Day is fast approaching. Barely a few months to go for the Airtel Hyderabad Marathon 2019.

For some of us, it will be the first Marathon or the Half Marathon, and for some, the chance to set new personal records. But for some of our more experienced runners, this is also the chance to help our friends to achieve milestone time targets. Helping a bunch of folks cross the line within their goal timing, is pretty close to a Personal Best in itself. This is also an opportunity to give back to the running community – your experience and your wisdom on how to achieve a personal best.

Here are some guidelines that the Organizers will require you to adhere to:

  • Pacing at Hyderabad Marathon 2019 is a completely voluntary exercise to help our fellow runners achieve their timing goals.
  • The last date for consideration towards Pacing in Hyderabad Marathon 2019 is June 10, 2019.
