Hello all you marathoners out there trying to reach a time goal -- we have pacers for you!
The plan is to have pacers for 3:19, 3:29, 3:39, 3:49 and 3:59 finish times. (We assume you would like to BEAT 3:20, 3:30, 3:40, 3:50 and 4:00!)
Pacers will have balloons. Some of our pacers will switch at the halfway point, some will cheerfully take you from start to finish. Many of theserunners are Missoula's very own Team Stampede triathlon team members. Others are from the running club, Run Wild Missoula.
You might notice we use the word PLAN. This is because we aren't paying these people one penny to do this, and if someone wakes up in the morningwith the flu, or the kid is sick, or other unplanned life things happen, we might be down a pace group.
So we'll do our darndest, there will be pace groups out there, and hopefully it will be the pace you want!
Look for the balloons on race day and stay on pace!
