The announcement follows the success and positive feedback from this years event and will come as welcome news to the thousands of runners set to #RunLimassol spring 2019.
The pacers will be helping runners to hit their targets in both the AIMS-accredited OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO and Limassol Half Marathon, whilst also providing a fun social experience throughout each race.
Experienced pacer Paul Addicott, who manages his own blog pickupthepacepaul.com and regularly paces at races worldwide, will once again be leading the pacing team in Limassol and pacing the sub 4-hour group himself. Paul is an established pacer at the Virgin Money London Marathon and this year alone he has paced the BMW Berlin Marathon, Bank of America Chicago Marathon, Simplyhealth Great North Run, Royal Parks Half Marathon, Shrewsbury Half Marathon and many more. He has helped hundreds of runners to cross the finish line with a smile on their face, having achieved their expected time and benefited from his experience and race knowledge.
The 2019 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO will be Paul’s third time in Limassol, having earned his first medal at the 2017 event. Rating the event as one of his all-time favourite races, Paul is looking forward to helping runners achieve their own PBs – which is common-place on Limassol’s flat and fast course – whilst making the most of the climate and scenery to enjoy a mini-break away with his family.
