Pacing Teams

We have another fantastic team of pacers this year. Some are old friends who’ve been with us a long time, but we’re also delighted to welcome a couple of new pacers this year.

A massive thank-you to the River Lee Hotel for accommodating our travelling pacers. We know, as always, that they’ll be treated like royalty!

Come and meet some of the pacing team at the Expo in City Hall on Saturday 1st June. The Meet the Pacers stand is a great chance for you to chat with the team and get some helpful advice for race day.
