The 2014 Kansas Half Marathon will feature pace group leaders from the Runners Edge Training Program. Join one of our FREE SmartPace teams to achieve your goal time, or just to have a great time running with a group. 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. Meet the pacers here!
Pacers will be available for the following times: 1:35, 1:40, 1:45, 1:50, 1:55, 2:00, 2:05, 2:10, 2:15, 2:20, 2:25, 2:30, 2:40, 2:50, 2:55, & 3:00
