Official Pace Team members will be easily identified at the start of the race as they will be wearing blue Buffalo Marathon tech shirts with “PACER” clearly printed across the back of the shirt. In addition, affixed on the back of the shirt, beneath the “PACER” imprint will be a bib specifying a half marathon finishing time in red and a marathon finishing time in blue. At the start of the race, please look for the pacer that has the marathon or half marathon finishing time that you desire.

Buffalo Marathon Pace Teams sponsored by Runner’s Roost

 

This year our Pace Teams are proudly sponsored by Runner’s Roost, WNY's premier running store!

 

The Buffalo Marathon will have official Pace Teams (two runners taking 1st & 2nd leg half marathon distances each, or one runner taking the full marathon distance) that will assist runners in keeping their desired marathon or half marathon pace times. We are working to finalize the pace teams now and are planning to have pacers to meet marathon goal times of 3:00 - 5:00 (in ten-minute increments) and half marathon times of 1:30 - 2:30 (in five-minute increments.)

 

Official Pace Team members will be easily identified at the start of the race as they will be wearing black Buffalo Marathon singlets with “PACER” clearly printed on the front and back. In addition, each pacer will be holding a pacer sign specifying a half marathon finishing time and a corresponding marathon finishing time. At the start of the race, please look for the pacer that has the marathon or half marathon finishing time that you desire.

 

Come and meet your pacers at the Runners Expo on Saturday, and later that evening at the pasta party!

 

Questions regarding pacing should be directed to pacers@buffalomarathon.com and will be responded to promptly right up until an hour before race time.
