    I ran with the pacers for 2017 Princess HM. They did remind many to keep off to the right when walking but as you said many people in the group disregarded this. Luckily, many of these folks dropped back around Magic Kingdom. Most in the group I was with did try to be mindful but I also saw many others not with the pacing group walk right down the middle of the path even stopping without notice. So, I agree with you that many people did not know the rules of etiquette, however, I don't think it was limited to the run/walk/run group. JMO

    I would love to know what pace they planned on using ahead of time, great idea. They haFor this year's PHM I was training at 2m/1m and on race day I think they were something like :30/1m. The posted training program has suggestions based on the desired pace time but it didn't seem like they matched the pacers on race day.

    I did see multiple 16m/mi pace groups throughout the later corrals. I don't know about the other pace times though.

    So, does this mean that there are no pace teams for somebody that wants to run a 3:30 or a 3:35 in the full marathon?

    Sorry I didn’t see this earlier. But you were correct; we did not have a pace group faster than 3:45 on Sunday. I hope you were able to reach your goals!

    Any word on pacers for SWDSH ? Also, has anybody run with the 2hr pace group? I train with a 4 min/1 min so the 2 min/30 sec seems short but manageable? I've never run with a pace group so I'd like to know your experience with the pace ! :)

    Thank you for posting these. I am thinking about signing up for the half in January with the goal of finishing and not being swept. I think a pace group might be a good option for me as I'll be running alone. Can you please explain the ratio to me?

    If you're following a Galloway plan to train, you're likely using run/walk intervals. The first number in the ratio is the time of the run portion of the interval, while the second number after the slash is the walk portion.

    You can read more about Jeff Galloway's Training Program - and get an idea of specifically training for the Half Marathon in January here.

    I'm beginning to think this should be a newbie requirement.
