We realize that completing “The Marathon” is a huge life-event. In its wake, many allow themselves to get caught up in the moment, firing out at the gun with reckless abandon, only to quickly fizzle out: undermining their training, their strategy, and their big day as a whole.
With that in mind, we want to do all we can to help make those 26 miles and the .2 that follow as positive as possible.
To help in this, we are requesting experienced runners to register to act as official pacesetters for other runners on race day. Every runner wants to finish fast, but to do so we sometimes need to mentally slow down. And that, my friends, is what pacing is all about. So if you wish to help the cause of others, please sign up now for your chance to pace at this inaugural event!
When you sign up to pace at the event, you can take the lead and help your fellow runners stay prudent on race day. We are looking for a variety of pace leaders all the way to the 5 hr mark. Join in on this historic event and enjoy all that this marathon has to offer by setting pace for your many, new friends and ‘followers’ at the Inaugural Asheville Marathon at Biltmore Estate.
