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!



1:50 (8:23/Mile) Goal Finish Time

Grant Carboni

My first marathon was CIM 1997 and over the past 15 years I have completed more than 25 marathons (PR 3:12) and more than 60 ultra marathons (50 mile PR 7:58 and 100 mile PR 22:11). 


I have coached Track & Field and Cross Country at McClatchy HS in Sacramento since 1999.  I have been very lucky to be part of the running community and lifestyle starting in college where I was a walk on.  Now I enjoy helping others reach their running goals. 


I have paced for four Urban Cow Half Marathons, 6 times at WS100, 7 years for the CIM.  Heck, I even met my wife while training on the Western States Trail.
