2nd Annual Dogwood Pass Run Pace Teams

Pace Teams

Dogwood Pass Run Pace Teams 2018

A pace team is a group of runners led by an experienced leader who run together during the race. The pace leader runs a steady pace and keeps track of that pace so that the group can achieve their goal of finishing the race at a particular time. 

There are wonderful benefits of running with a pace group. You'll be supported by a cheerful leader and will be side by side with other runners sharing the same goal as you.

The Pace Team promises to provide fun and excitement for both first time, and experienced longer distance runners looking to reach their running goals - whether it’s a personal best, or just getting across the finish line. Below are the answers to a few common questions about the Pace Team.   

Where do the Pacers come from and how can I learn more about them?  All of our Pacers were chosen because of their years of running many marathons around the country but most importantly their extensive marathon pacing experience. Our Pacers are dynamic and personable, and know from past experience exactly what it takes to help you have a great marathon experience.

Pace Team FAQ

What does it cost to run with the Pace Team?   The Pace Team is free to registered runners and doesn't cost you anything!

How do I sign up to run with the Pace Team?  The Pacers will be at the packet pickup area at the expo on Saturday.

How will the Pacers be running the race?   Every pace leader will be holding a steady pace throughout the marathon. These "even splits" are the best way to achieve your peak performance in the race.

Will the Pacers start out on pace exactly? How do they do that!?   The guys and gals serving as Pace Leaders are very experienced and know their pace well. Sometimes at the start it's crowded and may take a couple of miles to settle into a steady pace. Most importantly, they won't take you out too fast and burn up all your energy early on.   

Where will my Pace Leader be on race morning?
  About 30 minutes before the start we'll be assembling in the starting area. About 15 minutes before the start the Pacer will give you some last minute instructions about running with the group. They will talk about the course, their strategy for “Bootlegger Hill,” what to do if you need a break, and how to make it through the water stops. 

Now is the time to ask any last minute questions you may have.  

What will the Pace Leader do at the water stations?
  The Pacer will usually slow down or walk through the water stops. Listen for this information during the last minute instructions.
