The Mitja Marató de Barcelona will put again a group of 15 runners who will do the functions of pacemakers at the disposal of all the participants who wish it. With seven different paces (1h15, 1h20, 1h25, 1h30, 1h40, 1h50 and 2h00), they will help those runners who want to reach a concrete record. After last year's success, the organization will repeat this service, usual in the marathons. The presence of pacemakers in the Mitja of Barcelona is a differential factor in comparison with the rest of races, as usually there are no pacemakers in the half marathons or only for a few certain paces.
The pacemakers will be inside the start boxes and will carry an identifying globe of 40 cm of diameter that will be marked with the pace in order that you can see and follow them. Do not doubt it. If you want to break your own record, you have pacemakers at your disposal to do it.
