Race pacers a welcome addition to Burnie Ten

For the first time ever, race pacers will feature in the 2015 B&E Burnie Ten.

The race pacers will complete the 10km course in a number of set times including 50 minutes and 60 minutes.

Burnie Ten Race Director Rick Ferguson said, “The decision to include race pacers in this year’s event stems from public feedback and we are hoping that they will be a real benefit to those who want to achieve a specific goal time.”

“The race pacers will be very easy to spot, each of them wearing a helium balloon appropriately labelled with a different time.”

“These runners will provide a visual guide to participants to let them know if they’re on the right pace to achieve their Burnie Ten goals.”

To register for the 2015 B&E Burnie Ten visit www.burnieten.com.au. Standard entry fees are available until midnight Tuesday 13 October.
