What is your target time for the NN CPC Loop Den Haag? The ‘Nationale-Nederlanden Pacing Team powered by Runner’s World’ is here to support you!
What is the Nationale-Nederlanden Pacing Team powered by Runner's World?
This team helps individual marathon runners accomplish their personal target time. The pacers are experienced marathon runners who are able to adhere to the smoothest possible running schedule. No matter what your target time is, they are here to support you.
Disclaimer: it is possible that pacers have to cancel at the very last minute due to, for example, an acute injury or a positive covid test. If this is the case, we do everything we can to find replacements (which is sometimes no longer possible in the short term).
More information on the specific start times will be announced in the advance of the event.

Pacers are pace setters, who because of their extensive race experience, have a perfect feel for the distance, conditions and pace. Because of this, they are able to walk very evenly to the finish. To help you through the difficult moments, they will fall back into the group every now and then to encourage you and provide you with invaluable tips and advice.
The groups of participants are divided under planned target times. Per group, two or three pacers run with the NN CPC Run The Hague. They are clearly recognisable by their white uniform and by their placard with the target time with the logos of Nationale-Nederlanden and Runner's World on it.
Participation in the Nationale-Nederlanden Pacing Team powered by Runner's World team involves - apart from the usual entry fees for the event itself - no additional costs.
It is not necessary to sign up. The pacers are divided into the different starting waves. There is no central gathering point, you can meet the pacers directly in the starting areas.
You can easily recognise the pacers by the white shirts and running jackets with the Nationale-Nederlanden and Runner's World logos on them. During the run of the NN CPC Loop Den Haag, they will wear a backpack with a flag, on which the target time is clearly visible (see photo). This will allow you to see/follow the pacers along the way. The pacers will set the pace, but will also be there to answer any questions you may have or to help you through any difficult moments.
At Nationale-Nederlanden we think it is important to help people achieve their personal goals. Everyone runs for the achievement of a personal goal. During the NN CPC Loop Den Haag, you do not have to do this alone. The Nationale-Nederlanden Pacing Team powered by Runner's World will be happy to help you run at the right pace, whatever your target time is. Your goal, your pace.
Supporter of all runners.
