Pacing Requirements

A participant must maintain a 17 minute per mile pace throughout the course. This is a running clock that begins when the last participant crosses the start line.

We recommend that you train at a pace of 15 minutes per mile to account for entertainment locations and photos and to ensure that you can finish the route in time.

You will be notified by race officials if you are falling behind pace so that you can catch up to the minimum pace requirements.

Runners unable to maintain the pace may be picked up at any point along the course.
