Pace Groups

A Snail's Pace Running Club will be providing complimentary Pace Group leaders for both the Half and Full Marathon. Two pacers will be provided for each of the different pace groups.

The Pacers will line up at the start line with a sign indicating their predicted finish time. You will be able to recognize the pace leaders by their Snails Pace Pacer Singlet and hand held pace sign. The pacers will help you reach your goal finishing time by keeping a steady pace. You do not have to stay with your pace group. This service is provided to maximize your chances of achieving your goals.

Pace Leader Waves
