A pacer’s job is to run an even pace and finish the race in a predetermined time to help others reach a time goal. In 2019 we will have 10K pacers for 40, 50 and 60 minutes and for the half marathon the pacers will run 1:25, 1:30, 1:40, 1:50 and 2:00. There are currently no plans to have pacers in the full marathon in 2019.

Just find your pacer at the start line and stick with them to the finish to get your time. The pacers will be wearing pacer bibs and will have signs indicating their pace times. They will also be wearing race bibs on their front and back with their pace times. Look out for:

Look out for these pacer signs...
