Who are pacers?
Pacers are seasoned runners who will run the distance in the specified time. Their key role is to help the runners ‘set the pace’ according to their timing goals. The pacers are well aware of the terrain, the weather conditions and importantly, have the adequate experience of running the distance in the time specified.
A group of pacers for a particular time are commonly referred as the ‘pacing bus.’ Join any pacing bus and you will be assured of finishing the race within the time goal. For instance, if you run with the 2:30 bus in the half-marathon category, you are assured of finishing the race in 2 hours 30 minutes or less.
