PACERS

Introduction

There will be esteemed runners who will lead as pacers for their pacing buses. These pacers are accomplished and well known runners in the running society who are capable of guiding fellow runners to achieve their goal.

Who are Pace Setters?

A pace-setter is a runner who is a veteran of many races and knows the art of pace setting. Pacer is a committed runner who is able to set a steady pace throughout the distance and bring in the group of runners following him/her from the start to the finish at the predetermined time. The group following a pace setter is called a ‘Bus’. The idea is that the pacer must finish just around 1 minute before the promised time. So, if you have joined the sub 3:45 hour bus, the pace setter will lead you to the finish line somewhere between 3:44 – 3:45 hours, not even 1 second over 3:45 hours.
