Pace Groups

Galloway Pace Groups

DONNA is proud to offer Official Galloway Pacers for the Marathon and Half Marathon events. Program Directors and Pace Group Leaders from around the country are coming here to pace our runners to Boston Qualifying times, personal bests, or just an official finish. How do you join a pace group? Just look for our Galloway Pacers before the race, stick with them throughout the run, and remember to move to the right of the road during walk breaks. All pacers will be easily identifiable before and during the race and will be using Jeff Galloway’s run/walk/run method for the entire 26.2 or 13.1 miles. For more information on this method, please visit jeffgalloway.com.

Runner Safety

EVENT ALERT SYSTEM

EAS Status for Marathon Sunday is GREEN

A color-coded Event Alert System (EAS) will be used to communicate the status of course conditions to participants leading up to and on race day. The levels range from Low (green) to Moderate (yellow) to High (red) to Extreme (black) based primarily on the weather, as well as other conditions.

The DONNA Medical Director Dr. Sara Filmalter and Meteorologist Tim Deegan along with the rest of the Race Communications team, will determine and execute the specific alert level on race day.

  • E-mail, Facebook, Twitter and website communication during race week will inform participants of the current Event Alert System status and provide preparation tips based on advance weather forecasts.
  • Updates will be made at the DONNA Expo via public address announcements.
  • On race day, the current Event Alert System status will be communicated via public address announcements and color-coded signs/flags at the start and finish areas, and along the course at aid station locations.
  • All participants should familiarize themselves with the Event Alert System prior to the race, remain alert for directions from race officials and announcers and take precautions to prepare properly for varying weather conditions on race day.
