Pacemakers have been at the side of runners in marathons and half marathons for years. Around 40 selected and experienced runners start at the SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne in various starting blocks and will guide the participants at a regular pace along the course.
Our pacemakers are equipped with backpack flags and cannot be overseen.
In order to distinguish the pacemakers of the two distances, red flags are used for the marathon and blue flags for the half marathon.
The target times of our Pacemakers are the following
1.30h / 1.35h / 1.40h / 1.45h / 1.50h / 1.55h / 2.00h / 2.10h
3.00h / 3.15h / 3.40h / 3.50h / 4.00h / 4.15h / 4.30h / 4.45h
