Pacer Guides

What is a pacer? And do I have to pay to run with a pacer?

The role of a pacer is to support you in reaching your goal finish time by keeping to their assigned pace. Pace Groups are FREE. 


What is a sweeper?

In a race it's the sweeper's job to stay at the back of the pack and make sure everyone running finishes or, if they drop out they get back to the start safely. Obviously, this means running at a pace as slow or slower than the last runner, which can sometimes mean walking part of the course.


How do I know who the pacers are? How do I find the pacers? 

Pacers available for the half and full marathon distances.  Pacers designated by an official pacer shirt, will wear shirts and hold pacer flags indicating race time. You can meet the pacers pre-race at (TBA) 30 minutes prior to the race or look for their signs at the start line.
