Pace Team 



The Urban Cow Pace Team is sponsored and supported by our good friend Mike Ong of Lyon Realty.


Are you interested in running a specific time or perhaps a personal best in the half marathon? Plan ahead to have our pace team help you reach your goal. We will have pacers for the following Half Marathon finish times: 1:25; 1:30; 1:35; 1:40; 1:45; 1:50; 1:55; 2:00, 2:05, 2:10, 2:15; 2:30; 3:00; and 3:15.


We wish you the best of luck in achieving your finish time goal!
