The Race Pace Survey asks participants to provide a time from a race they've participated in during 2016 or 2015. Because not every walker participates in 10K races, the survey allows participants to enter times from 5K,10K, and Half Marathon distances and times. If you've never walked in a race, participants can conduct a time trial on their own. We encourage walkers to use a local track and time themselves at a rigorous pace for at least 3 miles.
Note: When a participant fills out the survey, the time that an individual enters will change slightly. THE CALCULATOR IS WORKING TO ALTER YOUR TIME BASED ON A VARIETY OF FACTORS.
IMPORTANT 2017 RACE PACE DATES:
JUNE 16: 8 Members of a team must have the race pace survey filled out to receive a start time
