Meet Our Pacers – As an aid to runners, the Pace Team will be there for you. We will be offering pace groups led by experienced pacers for a wide variety of times and we hope you will find this support useful as you strive to achieve your goals.
A pace team is a group of runners led by an experienced leader who runs together in the marathon. The pace leader runs a steady pace and keeps track of that pace so that the group can achieve their goal of finishing the marathon at a particular time. There are wonderful benefits to running with a pace group. You’ll be supported by a cheerful leader and will be side by side with other runners sharing the same goal as you. One of the biggest mistakes that runners make is starting out too fast and then giving up in the later portions of the race. The pace team will run at an almost even pace. If the pace feels too slow at the beginning of the race that’s normal. Just stay with the group and ask the pace leader about an appropriate strategy for the second half. If you find the pace too fast in the early miles, then slow down and drop back from the team so you’ll be able to finish the race.
The Pace Team promises to provide fun and excitement for both first times, and experienced marathoners looking to reach their running goals – whether that’s a personal best, or just getting across the finish line.
