Whether you’re running you’re first ½ marathon, first full marathon or you’re a race day expert, pacing plays a key part in every runner’s journey along the course. That’s why today’s tip is join a pace team!
Our friends at CLIF Bar have an elite team of pace leaders to help every runner, from the novice to the hardcore.
The CLIF Bar Pace Team is a group of experienced runners who help set the pace for runners at marathons and ½ marathons. Part coach, part friend, and part mentor (at least for several hours!), this is an experienced long distance runner who sets a steady pace while offering encouragement and advice. The Pace Team Leader is capable of finishing the event anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes faster, so they can devote their extra energy to assisting their team. The leaders also have run multiple marathons and can share their expertise with you.
