JOIN A RACE GROUP FOR THE BMW OSLO MARATHON VIRTUAL EDITION!
The BMW Oslo Marathon is known for having pacers in the course who help runners reach the goal for their finish time.
A pacer is there to help, push and motivate the runners, give them a gear they may not know they had and work to ensure that they reach the finish line within the goal they have set for themselves.
When you run in a race, you often run with several others, and there is no doubt that the runner besides you in the course sometimes motivate you to push yourself. Many might not have managed to push themselves to reach their goal without their sidekick in the course.
Every year we get feedback from both pacers and runners who have participated in the BMW Oslo Marathon that their pacer group worked together, and they motivated each other through the course. The fellowship in the group made a better running experience and boosted their motivation.
We want to recreate this in our Virtual Edition, and we hope you will help us create race groups all over Norway – and maybe the whole world!
In order to make this happen we have created a solution where you can find runners in your area who want to run the same distances with similar goal times, and who want to run together with other runners.
Our goal is to create motivation and dedication. We also want to create an alternative to the fellowship and joy of running you get from running with others at a real event.
