What we do
The PaceMakers is a running group of spirited long distance (from 10K to Marathon) runners of all abilities – ranging from novice to experienced, who coach under the leadership and guidance of Coach Pani – an ex-IAF athlete with many meritorious achievements to his credit in competitive races across various distances.
In 2012 a group of runners from Bangalore embarked on the journey of running 12 Marathons in 12 Months (12M12M). Towards the end of their goal, something didn’t feel right. As fatigue and at times injuries, stood between them and their fantastic achievement, they felt they needed something more. Support, awe and encouragement had already connected them to many other runners and some of their conversations with fellow runners ended up in a coffee shop with a certain ‘Coach Pani’. While only a few of the 12M12M runners came on board, the PaceMakers was born.
How we train
At PaceMakers, we believe there is a right way to train for a long distance racing event. It starts with having a clear goal, finding the right partner(s) to train with, following a structured training plan and exercises and above all enjoying camaraderie that makes us great runners.
