Pacers

We have a fantastic pacer team who work extremely hard behind the scenes to ensure that every session is fun whilst also pushing you to your limits to maximise your potential.  They have all acheived some pretty awesome feats aswell!!

Group 1: Ali

Ali has been with Dockside since the very start and is dedicated to bringing on all of the new runners to work through the distances.  Always ready with a smile and some awesome post race baking!

Group 1: Ken

Coach Ken is our resident ‘Mr Disney’ after taking part in multiple races in Disneyland and is currently training for the Chicago marathon in 2018.  Also our warm up leader, Ken is an expert at getting complete novices to fall in love with running

Group 2: Imelda

In 2017 Imelda completed one hundred 10k’s over 100 consecutive days and always with a smile on her face.  In fact no one at Dockside has ever seen her in any mood other than happy, positive and smiling.

Group 2: Dan

Dan has completed multiple marathons and ultra marathons and always does it with an air of cool.  He also loves a squat as Group 2 will attest to!

Group 3: Mel

As well as being a Group 3 pacer, Mel is also the unofficial Dockside social secretary.  Always ready to organise one of the legendary socials.

Group 3: David

Mr 110%, David does everything to the maximum.  He pushes Group 3 to their limit every week but will never ask for more than he is willing to do himself.  At some point he will amaze us all and have a rest, but don’t hold your breath!

Group 4/5: Sophie

Unofficial Dockside leader, Sophie is always ready with encouraging words and positive vibes.  Impressively she also knows the name of every single Docksider (and there are an awful lot of us!)

Group 4/5: Jay

What can be said about Jay?  Docksides Mr Superhuman will complete a triathlon in the morning, an ultramarathon at lunchtime and do 100 miles on the bike before his tea!
