Run the Parkway Pace Team Info:

The Run the Parkway Pace Team consists of experienced pacers, many of whom also serve as pacers at the CIM. They will be in place at least 10 minutes before the start and will be wearing matching shirts and holding red signs with their goal marathon finish time.


Run the Parkway Pace Team Times:
At Run the Parkway, each pace group will run the full 20-mile distance at the same pace as they will run the marathon at the CIM. (For example, the 3-hour CIM pace group will run the 20-miler in approximately 2:17:40.)
