Portland Marathon Pacer Program

Want to be a Portland Marathon Pacer? Please read the following instructions and apply here if you think you are right for the job.

In order to ensure you can complete the race at the required pace, we look for marathon pacers to be about 30 minutes slower and half marathons pacers to be around 15 minutes slower than your racing pace. When applying, please select your desired time slot. We will contact you as necessary to offer you other time slots if the slot you request does not work out for any reason.

If accepted, you will be provided a pacing band to run at an even effort.

If you are accepted as a Portland Marathon Pacer, you will be given a code for a free entry.
