Time Team

Posted by speedygeoff on Saturday, February 27, 2010 with 2 comments
I will be be inviting experienced marathon runners to apply to join the "Time Team", the official pacing group for the National Capital Marathon in Canberra on 2 May. Men and women can apply; we will have both Time Ladies and Time Lords. Afterwards we can share Time Team Tim Tams.

There will be a Time Team pacer for 3:00, 3:15, 3:30, 3:45, 4:00, and 4:30. Each Time Team pacer will be supplied with a modern Mizuno racing singlet and carry a balloon with the target time written on it. Time Team will be running their target times at a steady pace so as to achieve even splits. An application form will be available shortly, successful applicants will get free marathon entry, and be in charge of a pace group running 15 to 30 minutes slower than their Time Team pacer would achieve flat out.

My splits were approximately 3:52, 4:04, 3:57 to run a season's best by 13 seconds and there is no way I could have held off the fast finishing Morrisons had they caught me.

  1. I love the 'Time Lords' title. Keep the same for the ladies too, surely ladies can be Time Lords as well, or is my Doctor Who knowledge a bit shaky?

  2. Time Lords are Masters of their... something. I could have used that Caramello Koala half way through this morning's handicap!
