PACE CHARTS

Captains must submit for each member of their team an accurate and current 10 (RUN or WALK teams), or MARATHON (ULTRA teams), race pace per mile as part of the registration process. Each Captain will also have to fill out and submit to Relay Around Columbus this electronic TEAM ESTIMATE PACE CHART so that their team can be properly seeded for their start. These projections are critical for race management because they allow RAC to determine proper START times for each team and spacing for vehicles along the course, particularly in the EXCHANGE ZONES. The electronic TEAM ESTIMATE PACE CHART will provide each team with a good ballpark idea of the time they will spend on the course if they can maintain their 10K pace (RUN or WALK teams), or MARATHON pace (ULTRA teams).

Captains will be sent the Excel Sheet to be filled out and resubmitted to EVENT OFFICIALS, or they can link on line from this part of the website, and download and submit to RAC. Captains should fill this out and return to info@relayaroundcolumbus.com as soon as possible after they enter their team. Captains should adjust this PACE CHART and resubmit if there is a substitution on their team, or if there is a dramatic time pace difference for an individual on the team. Teams will not be able to adjust their overall team time entered into the system after June 13, 2014. Captains will be notified of their team starting time on June 6, 2014.

Please download the file of the Pace Chart as it should be compatible with either Microsoft Excel or Apple's Numbers application.

Please note that all teams (running or walking) must be able to finish the event in 21 hours, or by 12pm on Sunday. The Running Division teams may have a mix of runners and walkers on their teams, again, as long as they will finish the event in 21 hours or by 12pm on Sunday. The WALKING DIVISION is for WALKERS ONLY. Teams, in either division, that are not on pace to finish by 12pm on Sunday, June 29, run the risk of being moved forward on the course, or being disqualified.

Teams that are going too fast, and did not provide accurate times, will be held at points during the events but not lose the time spent being held on the course in their overall time at the end of the event. Holding teams is to make certain the teams do not move ahead of the event staff schedule of setting the course up in a particular time and location.
