Welcome to the August / September issue of PACE magazine.
As always, it's full of information on future races for you to enter and some features on past events covered by marathon-photos.com.
Our charity feature this month is RAPID UK and as always, we're looking for a new charity to feature every issue, so if you have one close to your heart, please feel free to send us the details (click here).
We're also always open to any suggestions / handy hints you may have on running, swimming, cycling and anything associated, ie nutrition and training being two of the most popular.
Happy reading and training.
Michel makes everybody smile
When Michel shows up he spreads happiness. For many years the Frenchman has run marathons - but his finish time is not important to him. At every run, in a new, imaginative costume, he motivates other runners to sweat it out. Even if they are exhausted, he makes them smile and inspires them to finish. Michel lives in Germany and charmingly presents roses to the last runners as they finish. Everybody in the marathon scene knows Michel and he has become a sort of mascot for race organisers. Marathon Photos took this picture at the recent Freiburg-Marathon.
