Here was the pacing requirements in last years race: All athletes entering the Marathon and the Half Marathon must be able to maintain a 16-minute per mile pace throughout the race. Anyone who is not able to maintain a 16-minute per mile pace will be picked up and transported to the Family Reunion area at Epcot. You can be picked up at any point along the course for not maintaining a 16-minute per mile pace. Pace Cyclists will be on the course indicating when runners are behind pace by placing orange flags at mile markers according to the official pace time. If you reach a mile marker with an orange flag, please note you are behind the required 16-minute per mile pace and can be picked up at any time.
