PACERS

 

The 2018 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.

Check back soon to learn about our 2018 PACERS!

This is what was said about the Pacers from the 2017 Kansas Half:

“…Thanks so much to Brittney for excellent pacing.” – Justine

“My first half! Perfect course, very easy to follow, amazing volunteers and pacers!” – Beth

“Very happy with the course, volunteers, pacers, etc.” – Sarah
