    For the WDW half in January, what pace will the run leader be keeping for 3:30? Like jog a mile, walk a mile. Will they go by time or distance? I would like to train keeping the pace they will do so the van won't pick me up!

    Hi Anne!  The CLIF BAR pacers are a great way to stay on track!

    Below is the information on pace groups.  I would encourage you to visit the website listed below to sign up for your group, and to inquire about specifics..  As for the van, those pacers will start walking a 16 minute/mile pace once the last person crosses the starting line.  If you get behind them,  you will be carted to the finish area. 

    Here's How It Works:

    • Each Pace Leader will run even splits (every mile will be run in the same amount of time) throughout the race.
    • By following your Pace Team leader, you'll cross the finish line in under two minutes of your goal time.
    • Pace Teams will be provided for the following finish times:
      • Marathon - 3:10, 3:20, 3:30, 3:40, 3:50, 4:00, 4:15, 4:30, 5:00, and 5:30.
      • Half Marathon – 1:40, 1:50, 2:00, 2:15, 2:30, 2:45, and 3:00

    Meet Your Pacer at the Expo

    • Meet your Pace Team leader before the race at the Health & Fitness Expo.
    • Learn about your Pacer's marathon experience; insights on staying hydrated during the race; and assorted tips.
    • Get your free Pace Band from a Pace Leader.

    Where to Meet on Race Day

    • On race morning, pace leaders will be lined up according to their pace and holding signs with their finish times. Join your appropriate pace group.
