Iron Girl would like to thank FITniche for sponsoring our 2014 pace groups.
What are “Pacers”?
A person or team that helps you achieve your running goal by setting a consistent pace during the event. They help you avoid going out too fast, help you maintain a steady pace, then help motivate you to the finish.
Iron Girl Clearwater will have pacers for the Half Marathon that range every 10 minutes from 1:40 through 2:50. Each pacer will have a sign indicating their estimated finish time. To run with the pace group, simply introduce yourself to the pacer on race morning. Don't be shy, our pacers are friendly and happy to help in anyway they can!
