The London Pacers Running Club includes people who run or walk for fitness and participate in races. A membership meeting is typically held on the second Monday of given month (except June, July and August, when there is no meeting) at 7:00pm at the London Grosvenor Lodge, London, Ontario. Please check the calendar for exact dates as there are exceptions. Meetings feature a brief business session where executive members present information about social and charity activities, future race/walk events, membership updates and treasurer reports. Members also have an opportunity to bring their medals and share their experiences from recent races they’ve completed. A guest speaker presentation typically follows the business session and the evening ends with some refreshments and conversation. These meetings are open to all.
