Want to give yourself an extra boost toward meeting your time goal on race day or just add some fun and entertainment to your race? Join a pace team!
A pace team is a group of runners led by an experienced leader who run 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 of 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. And the best part — running with a pace team is free to registered runners and doesn’t cost you anything!
