The 2016 Kansas Half Marathon will feature pace group leaders from the Runner’s Edge Training Program. Our seasoned line-up of runners will follow a carefully planned pacing strategy designed to give you the best chance to run a great race.  Instead of running an even pace for each mile, they will use a SmartPace strategy that adjusts the pace based on the hills to help you run ‘even effort’ and start out conservatively to help run more efficiently.  Visit their website to learn more about their pacing strategy or click here to learn more about your pacers and read their bios.

Meet your 2016 pacers!
