As a benefit to the marathon runners we will be offering pace teams led by experienced pacers for a wide variety of times including many of the Boston qualifying standards. We hope you will find this support useful as you strive to achieve your marathon goals. Half marathoners can run with the Pacers until the course split. You can review the pace times offered and the pacer bios on the Pace Team page. Please stop at the Pace Team booth at the Expo to sign up.
