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.
