To help our runners achieve their goals we have enlisted the RYR Pacers to pace the half marathon.
At the starting line each pacer will be holding a sign with their pace time on it. The faster the pace the closer to the starting line they will be. Please find your pacer and line up behind them.
This will help all runners be around other runners with similar speeds and keep runners from getting stuck behind slower runners or getting bumped or run over by faster runners.
The 3 hr 15 min pacers will be the last runners on half course. Please maintain their speed to remain on the course.
