Need some extra support in your goal to finish your race at Airtel Hyderabad Marathon 2017 ? Are you looking to run a personal best ? Airtel Hyderabad Marathon Pacers will help you meet your performance goals.
Airtel Hyderabad Marathon Pacers will be on-facebook to talk about pace strategy, how to locate your group at the start line and to answer general questions about the program.
Why should I run with Pacer ?
Running with a Pacer is a fun way to run with a group and target a specific time goal. Pacers are experienced runners who will encourage you throughout the race and help you achieve your performance goal.
What are the finish times available for the Pacers ?
10K - 0:55, 1:00, 1:10, 1:20, 1:30
HM - 1:45, 1:50, 2:00, 2:15, 2:30, 2:45, 3:00
FM - 4:00, 4:15, 4:30, 4:45, 5:00, 5:30, 6:00
Which Pacer should I run with ?
You should choose a pace that reflects your training and ability level and allows you to run at a comfortable pace throughout the race. If you can't decide between two paces (for example 4:00 and 4:15), it is recommended that you start with the slower pace as you can always pick it up later in the race.

I believe in "Finish strong". No one is watching you for 42K, but everyone will at the finish line. All this grind, so that you can put up smiling face for that finish line.
Life is no different from marathon. you have to run your 42k. If you run too hard in the beginning, you might fell short, or even worse... crawl to the finish line

Today I have a PB of 1:56:23 for Half Marathon at SPBM 2016 and best Full Marathon timing of 4:19:53 at SCMM 2017.

Name : Manish Dhiman
Profile : I am Manish Dhiman from New Delhi. I am working with Tata Consultancy Services.I have been an avid sports person since my school days. The running bug caught up on me in the year 2015 when a casual 10k run turned out to be an obsession for me. No looking back after that. I have run several Half Marathons (PB-01:40:12), Full Marathons (PB-03:53:00) and Few Ultra Marathons including 12 hour Stadium Run (88KM).
I believe in making others achieve their targets as it is more satisfying than a PB for me. The joy when people say, "It's because of you that I got my PB" is beyond words.
This thought led me into pacing wherein I have paced many individuals personally and officially. I have paced some events in Delhi including IDBI Federal New Delhi Marathon in Feb 2017. It was a pleasure being the pacer of 4.45 bus at NDM.
My Strategy will be very simple and would ensure all the passengers of my bus reach their destination on/before time. Loads of fun guaranteed....

Profile : I am a person who lives whim to whim. Nobody would ever imagine a night owl like me would be able to wake up for run at 3 am for a long run. Little did I realize that a run is the most liberating thing that i could ever do in my life. How did I start? I started off by following a walking regime around two years back.I initially saw a lot of runners doing marathons and half marathons. I never thought that o could do it myself. Slowly I built up the stamina and started with a half marathon at the AHM 2015. Since then i did not look back and have subsequently completed five full marathons and two ultra marathons. Truly running has made me the person i am today. I made a lots of running friends and now getting up at 3 am pushing myself to the edge of fitness limits has become a norm. I would say that running defines me and i would like share the passion and become a part of the AHM 2017 as a pacer. So please join me and we will have a wonderful journey together with lots of fun on the way to your historic journey in becoming a full marathoner. Let the journey be full of song and dance..
