Strength training for running

Strength training is a supplement to a runner’s roadwork because it strengthens muscles and joints, which can improve race times and decrease injury risk. This session will introduce strength training exercises that you can do anywhere (no gym equipment required!) to boost your running performance. Our coaches will spend time individually with you to demonstrate the correct technique for the exercises and then watch as you give it a shot. A full arsenal of exercises (along with frequency and repetitions for key muscle groups) will be shared so you can incorporate them into your regular training.

Pacers

We’re here to pace you towards your goal time!

The Run by the Bay pacers assist participants to achieve their time goals in the 21.1km and 12.8km runs. Pacers are experienced runners who aim to maintain an even pace throughout the race with the goal to have you finishing slightly faster (30 seconds or so) than your goal time.

For easy visibility, the pace runners will be holding a coloured balloon and a goal time sign high above the starting runners. Each pace runner will also wear a singlet with the goal time marked on the back. Pacer’s will start in the appropriate start zone for their allocated finish time. You will be assigned a start zone depending on your predicted finish time as indicated at your time of registration. On race day you should start the race near your pace runner.
