I am a racewalker from Ailsa Craig. I was looking for a race open to walkers and I found one organized by London Pacers. When I showed up I was totally taken by how welcome I was. Everybody was so kind, helpful, friendly and supportive, great atmosphere. The race was organized very well. Despite challenging weather, I had a very good time. My wife and I decided to join the club.
I joined the Pacers when I first moved to London as a way to meet new people who share my love of being active and outdoors. I’m proud to be a part of a club that boasts competitiveness and adventure, while still being inclusive and social. The mix of accomplished runners and enthusiastic newcomers, like myself, fosters a mentoring atmosphere, which has helped me to run farther and faster than I ever have before. They’ve also challenged me to try new things, such as trail running and relay races. Thanks to the Pacers, I’ve not only develop what I expect will be a lifelong love of running, but lasting friendships as well.
