Pacer Team

Welcome, Athletes! Whether this is your first marathon, half marathon or hundredth, the CCRR Pace Team is here to help you achieve your goal and have fun doing it! We’re looking forward to seeing you at the starting line!

Marathon and Half Marathoner participants may find running with our pacers helpful in reaching a personal goal. Pacers are in costume and each carries a flag with their pace time and a finish time on their back. You don’t need to sign-up for a pace group. You can jump into a Pacer group on race morning.

Pacers are in the start corral early to meet racers. Most groups have pacing partners so one pacer can stay on consistent pace at the front of the group while the other acts as a sweeper in the back.

The most common question:
Do racers need to stay with their pace group the entire race? Absolutely not! Pacers are never upset if a racer is feeling strong and picks up the pace.
