Northland Waste Kerikeri Half Marathon Pace Runners

Sometimes we all just need help and that's ok. We have an awesome bunch of people who have offered their services to enable you to make it to the finish line. Our paces will keep a constant steady pace throughout the event all the while encouraging you. 

Our pacers will have helium balloons attached to them that will hover roughly half a meter of their head. On the balloon marked in vivid will be the expected time eg. 1.30hr, 2.00hr etc. These guys/gals are here to help you so don't be shy go on and introduce yourselves and get ready!

Hi, I'm Ironmike Stowers will running as the Super 2h10m Pacer!


I have finished 47 marathons and 16 Ironman races, I am a passionate role model for health and fitness, especially for the Maori and Pasifika communities. I love visiting the Bay of Islands, and the relatives in Kaikohe and Whangarei, the highlight is the beautiful run to Kerikeri each year, and this is my 3rd time as a Pacer and 6th overall, so stick with me if your target is a sub 2h10m

I am a Runstreaker and have been running every day since 1 April 2014, so on race day, it will be 2,427 days of consecutive running. - My motto is Finishing is winning!
