becoming a pacer

Pacer Applications are managed by the Tasmanian Road Runners (TRR).

Pace Group Leaders will be expected to run at an even pace for the entire distance of their event and to offer encouragement and information along the way. Keeping to your allocated pace and communication between yourself and the athletes within your Pace Group is extremely important if everyone is to continue as a group.  

Pace Groups will be announced closer to the event.  Contact TRR  for more information.
