Updates for the Week of August 3, 2020: 

Because we are still not able to meet in person, we wanted to provide a new way to interact with each other. So we created a Facebook Group, OFFICIAL PASADENA PACERS MEMBER GROUP!!! Go ahead and join and connect virtually with out members! Everyone joining the new group must be a registered Pasadena Pacer — if you have not previously registered,(click here to register).

Join us for our Pacer Virtual Toast , Thursday, August 6, 7 pm – 9 pm. 

Congratulations to all graduates of our most recent Walkers, Pre-Co , and 10 Mile Challenge training programs. New programs will be starting again on Saturday, August 15.

We can’t meet in-person, therefore, we will be using more social media and virtual meeting tools to keep Pacers connected.

    • Stay tuned for Facebook Lives, virtual meetups, and more.
    • Please remember to post photos from your runs/walks onto Instagram — this helps motivate others to run. Don’t forget to tag your photos with @Pasadenapacers, #pasadenapacers, and #pacerstogether2020, so Pacers can see easily see them.

It’s only getting hotter outside. Don’t forget to refer to Dr. Smith’s article, “Running in the Heat”, published in 2017   It has great tips and advice.

For When We are Allowed to Meet in Groups Again:

Ready to run? Just register and join us at our next scheduled outing. Come just as you are—out of shape or super fit—you’ll fit right in. Wear your running shoes and bring a water bottle. Make sure to introduce yourself to someone so you can get hooked up with a coach.

No running experience, no money required. Friendly smiles always appreciated.

Invite your family and/or friends to come join us for any weekday or Saturday run once we start meeting again

If you haven’t already, please remember that we need everyone to register before they run:
