I would say the Galloway groups are very different then the Clif groups - and in my mind not as good in the most recent races - but they're working on it I hope. The Clif groups seemed a bit more professional and experienced compared to the Galloway groups. Maybe it was a function of strictly running vs. run/walking - but of the Clif pace groups I've run - they were almost as accurate as my GPS watch with splits and were running WAY below what the pace leader would be capable of running (3:30 pacer would be a 2:45 marathoner or better for example). Everytime I've run with a pace group we've been within 30 seconds of our desired time - even in awful conditions, the Galloway groups were well off of their paces in what was almost an ideal marathon weather - no large temperature swings that day, relatively chilly, not windy, etc. Clif also had floaters out on the course to handle issues that might arise (one year my friend and I ended up taking over the 3:25 group due to the pacer having GI issues - eventually we ran into a floater who ran with us till the end) - I didn't see any of these with the Galloway groups. Also there were no faster groups for the Galloway pacers - I believe they started at 4 hours? They also started long before the race kind of gathering their crews, reassuring the newbies, and had lots of fun and interesting stories and tricks up their sleeves for making the miles go by. I didnt see as much of that with the Galloway crew, but it could have been happening. Part of this might be because the Galloway group is relatively new and is working out the kinks - but given all of the super experienced folks here that run lots of runDisney races (myself included) - they should probably work with runDisney and reach out to us to kind of flesh out the ranks a bit. You'd be surprised what people will do for a free shirt - I would sign up to pace one of those races in a heartbeat. I would like to see them have some faster pacers - maybe some run only (as its harder to do a run/walk at a 3:30 marathon). The other thing that some of my run/walk friends would want to know would be if they could release months before the race that hey if you want to run XX:XX we're going to be doing an X run/ Y walk pattern so they can train for it. Finally the big thing I talked to Galloway about but I didnt see happen in either of hte last 2 races, is duplicating the pace groups across multiple corrals. Again, free shirt and a stick with a time on it doesnt cost much.
