What is a pacer? A pacer runs a steady pace and keeps track of that pace while offering encouragement and advice so that individual runners can achieve their goal of finishing the marathon or half marathon at a particular time.

We know that completing a marathon or half marathon is a challenge. Maybe you’re trying to qualify for Boston, set a personal record, just trying to finish or even just trying to beat the course cut off time, we will be offering pacers to help you reach your goal.

You do not need to do anything in advance to follow a pace leader, just look for the pacer holding your desired finish time sign at the start line. Pacers will be available to answer questions and discuss your goals at the Expo/Packet Pick Up.
