To help with the start, Jim Crist and his team will once again be our pacers for the Half Marathon & 30K. To view more info about JASR pace teams check out their website page for the race http://marathonpacing.com/short-run.php
To help make the race start smoother, please line up with the signs which they will be holding at both of the start areas to help keep the runners organized by pace per mile. Faster to the front, slower to the back. Lining up correctly with your pace will help smooth out the start.
If you are a new or inexperienced distance racer, pacing teams will help you finish much stronger as many new runners go out too fast and crash. The pacers are human metronomes and will help you achieve your goals.
