Official OC Marathon Pace Teams are provided by Road Runner Sports and BEAST Pacing

 

Beast Pacing provides Half Marathon and Marathon pacers for events across the United States. Our pacers are professional, but have FUN while helping other runners reach their goals. Whether it is a Boston Qualifying Time you are looking for, a P.R., or just someone to run with, we are there to help!

Our pacers are chosen for their ability to successfully lead a group while keeping them motivated all the way to the finish. Pacers are assigned to Marathon times 20 minutes slower than they typically run (Half Marathon times 10 minutes slower) and are required to finish the race within 1 minute of goal time, but never over.

The following Pace groups will be at the 2019 OC Running Festival

Marathon: 3:00, 3:05, 3:20, 3:25, 3:30, 3:35, 3:40, 3:45, 3:50, 3:55, 4:00, 4:05, 4:20, 4:25, 4:35, 4:50, 5:00, 5:05, 5:20, 5:30
Half Marathon: 1:30, 1:35, 1:40, 1:45, 1:50, 1:55, 2:00, 2:05, 2:10, 2:15, 2:20, 2:25, 2:30, 2:40, 2:45, 2:50, 2:55, 3:00

How it Works:

Each Pace Leader will run even splits (every mile will be run in the same amount of time) throughout the race, and by following your Pace Team leader, you’ll cross the finish line within two minutes of your goal time.

Where to Meet on Race Day:

On race morning you’ll see them lined up according to their pace and holding signs with their finish times. Just fall-in with your group.
