Half Fanatic Pacers will line up along the start close to the pace per mile signs. Pacers will be holding signs marked with their finish time and will be wearing their red Half Fanatic Pacer t-shirts to help identify themselves. Each Pacer will take water from every aid station to ensure that runners remain well hydrated throughout the race. Runners are welcome to use the Half Fanatics Pacers through whichever portion of the race they think will help them most. You can run ahead or drop back at any time.

All water stops will have Nuun electrolytes and water and at least one honey bucket. Gel will be available at mile 6.7.
