Looking for a Boston Marathon qualifying time? Trying to achieve a PR? Our CIM Pace Team leaders can help you achieve your finish time goal. Here is a list of the most common questions about our elite team of pacers:

Where do I meet my pace group on race day?
While CIM does not have corrals you will be seeded and staged based on your Boston qualifying time. For more information please click here for staging information.

What are the pace group goal times available at CIM?
CIM pace group times are aligned with the Boston Marathon Qualifying times.

Will CIM have any pace groups not associated with a Boston standard?
Yes, CIM will also have the following non-BQ pace groups: 3:15, 3:45, 4:00, 4:30 and 6:00.

What is a pace team leader?
A Pace Team Leader is an experienced distance runner whose objective is to evenly pace runners to their time goal. They achieve this by setting an even pace (min/mile) from start to finish (with slight variations for terrain). Our leaders have run CIM multiple times, and are very familiar with the course and terrain.

Do I need to sign up for a pace team?
No. Seed yourself by your expected finish time. You can meet your pacer in advance at the expo, or just look for your pace team leader on race morning. 20 minutes before CIM start each pace leader will be at the start waving a red sign with their finish time goal. Arrive early!

Need more information?
Contact Scott Vosburg, Pace Team Coordinator, at paceteam@runsra.org. Please be patient this email will be reviewed approximately every two weeks. If you require a prompt response race week please direct your question to a pace team member at the CIM expo.
