Pacemakers – people who lead runners for a limited time from start to finish. The task of pacemakers is to help all willing competitors to reach the finish line at the intended time.
Our pacemakers will lead the following times: 3:00 / 3:15 / 3:30 / 3:45 / 4:00 / 4:15 / 4:30 / 4:45 / 5:00.
In addition, special pacemakers will run with the following methods: negative split for 4:00 and positive split for 4:15.
4:00 Negative Split
The average pace is 5: 40 / km. The difference between the first and second half should not be more than about 100 seconds. Pacemakers will start at a pace of around 5:45 / km, after having covered 1/3 of the distance gently to a pace of 5: 40 / km, after covering 2/3 of the distance the pace will be 5: 35 / km, thanks to which the first half will be slightly slower than the average recommended pace and the forces saved will be used for the second part of the distance.
4:15 Positive Split
The average pace is 6: 00-6: 05 / km. The difference between the first and second half should not be more than about 100 seconds. Pacemakers start at a pace of around 5: 55-6: 00 / km, and after covering 1/3 of the distance go gently to a pace of 6: 00-6: 05 / km, after covering 2/3 of the distance the pace will be 6: 05-6: 10 / km. The first half will be slightly faster than the average recommended pace, while later in the distance pacemakers will slow down slightly, which should be beneficial for people who have less strength along with the next kilometers covered. Mentally, participants should feel comfortable that despite slowing down they still keep the pace that allows them to complete the 4:15 time in the marathon.
How do you recognize a pacemaker?
Each of the pacemakers will be dressed in a characteristic T-shirt and a high flag of the green hussars type with a white inscription indicating the planned net time. The flags for the negative split and positive split methods will be red and yellow respectively.
