I’m Mike Coates and I wanted to introduce myself and the PACE RUNS race company.
PACE Runs is a racing company owned and operated by Mike Coates in partnership with Joseph Shayne, who is the founder of the running company We Run Kings. Our mission is to inspire, elevate, and empower the next generation of diverse runners.
As a racing company, PACE Runs strives to change the distance racing environment by planning and hosting races that provide a space for people of color** to come run and build a community around healthy living. Our vision for the next 10 years is to become the largest minority founded and focused race company.
We want your run crew to be a part of the PACE Runs experience! We need your help to transform the distance running scene. Be on the lookout for a follow-up email this coming week with details about participating in and/or volunteering at one of our events.
Our next race, the PACE Runs: NYC PACE 5K/10K, is Sunday, August 26,
2018. Mark your calendars!
