If you’re wondering how to predict your marathon finish time, and how to set your race pace for an upcoming marathon, Neil Scholes might have the answers
Marathon pacing is a skill to practice and if you do you can have a more ‘comfortable’ race and achieve those goal times. If it’s good enough for Mo it’s probably good enough for the rest of us, so sit down with your coach and plan those marathon pace times.
At the start of the race, a great number of runners will go away from you, you can rest assured that like the tide a great number will have gone off too quickly and you’ll see them again! It is mentally more rewarding to be passing runners rather than being passed in the last phase of the race.
