Pace Teams

NYRR is proud to provide pacers for each of its half- and full marathons through our Pace Team Program. This is an added benefit for runners, free of cost, to help them reach their time goals.

​Our Pace Team members are veteran runners who know the course and New York City. They have the experience to help you finish your race at your goal pace, whether you’re running your first race or trying to set a new personal record. ​

On race day the pace team can be identified by distinct blue and white striped singlets and each will be carrying a sign that will be elevated above the heads of runners.

Please note that you will not be allowed to move to a faster (lower numbered) corral in order to join a pace team. However, we advise you to start in your assigned corral and if necessary catch up to your pace team on the road.

For more information check out the NYRR Pace Team webpage or visit with the Pace Team at the United Airlines NYC Half Experience Presented by New Balance.
