SATURDAY TRAINING RUNS - COPPER ROCK

If you are looking for a group to run with, come to the Copper Rock coffee shop on Saturday mornings at 8 am, located at 210 W. College Ave., Appleton. A group of us run from there between October and May, even when it gets cold and/or snowy. It's a great way to motivate yourself to get your miles in during the off season. The routes are in the 4-10 mile range, with several distance options. Some extend it to a half marathon distance. Near mile 4 there is a water stop at the home of one of our generous longtime members, John Ebel. Afterwards, many stop in for a coffee or hot chocolate. Hope to see you there!

WORLD RECORD MARATHON

Last month, the amazing Eliud Kipchogie set a new Marathon record time by completing the 2022 Berlin Marathon in 2:01:09, shattering his own previous best marathon record by a full half minute, which goes to show that one can keep improving upon their own goals.

 

2022 COMMUNITY FIRST FOX CITIES MARATHON WEEKEND RECAP

The Pacesetters once again partnered with the Community First Fox Cities Marathon to bring a wonderful event to life. A significate number of Pacesetters participated in one of the 5 different run options. Pacesetters also volunteered to apply timing tags to all bibs, man the chip check booth at the expo to check chips, promote the club and St joes 5K run/walk. Pacesetters also helped set up the finish line, act as course marshals, assist with clean up and many other things. A hugely successful weekend was the result. Congratulations and thank you to all Pacesetters who participated and volunteered!
