Pace Teams
Strength in numbers

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!
