Who are Pace Setters?

A pace-setter is a runner who is a veteran of many races and knows the art of pace setting. Pacer is a committed runner who is able to set a steady pace throughout the distance and bring in the group of runners following him/her from the start to the finish at the predetermined time.

The group following a pace setter is called a ‘Bus’. The idea is that the pacer must finish just a few minutes under the promised time. So, if you have joined the sub 1:00 hour bus, the pace setter will lead you to through the finish line somewhere between 0:55 and 0:59 minutes, and not by 0:50 minutes or 1:02 hours.

Pacers for TCS World 10K 2017

On race day, you will be able to identify a pace setter with the help of a flag which he/she will be carrying, specifying the time within which he/she expects to cross the finish mat. The finish time will essentially be the net finish time; which means the time taken for an individual to finish his/her race after having hit the start mat at the Start Gate.
