Half Marathon Pace Chart

Races March 14, 2014 admin 0

We’ve all been there before: in the midst of a race, with everything going on around you, it’s hard to pace yourself and make sure you’re running at the right speed. This is critically important for long races like the half marathon, where going out too quickly or too slowly can have devastating consequences on your results. You’ve trained hard for your race, and the last thing you want is to come up short of your goals because you weren’t running at the half marathon pace you planned on.

With that in mind, we’ve put together this comprehensive half marathon pace chart to help you plan on what your time should be at each mile marker based on your desired overall pace and time for the race. Keep in mind that many factors will throw you off-pace during the early stages of the race: crowds, adrenaline, water stops, and more. Sometimes it seems like all the elements of the race are conspiring to throw you off your desired pace.

How to use the chart: find your desired per-mile pace in minutes and seconds. Scroll down the appropriate column to find the total time you should have at each mile marker. Remember that displays at various mile markers usually show the “gun time” or the official start. You individual “chip” time may have started later based on when you crossed the start line.
