Pace Teams
Strength in numbers

Byline Bank Pace Team provided by Chicago Endurance Sports

Want to give yourself an extra boost toward meeting your time goal on race day or just add some fun and entertainment to your race? Join a Byline Bank pace team!

A pace team is a group of runners led by an experienced leader who all run together to boost everyone to the finish line. The pace leader, provided by Chicago Endurance Sports,  runs a steady pace but more importantly, keeps track of this pace so that the group can achieve their goal of finishing at their respective finish times. There are many wonderful benefits to running with a pace group including the support of a cheerful leader as well as running with others sharing the same goal as you. The best part? Running with a pace team is free to registered runners!
