The Open Corral is the self-seeded placement of participants by expected minute-per-mile pace (8:00 min/mile, 9:00 min/mile, up to 13:00 min/mile). Participants who have not run a marathon under 5:00:59 between January 1, 2013 and January 15, 2015 will automatically be placed in the Open Corral.


Running a marathon is hard. It's hard the first time and it's had the tenth time. The CLIF Bar Marathon Pace Team supports all sorts of runners, from beginner to hardcore. Hook up with experienced pace leaders, get out there and achieve your goal.

Here's How It Works
Each Pace Leader will run even splits (every mile will be run in the same amount of time) throughout the marathon, and by following your Pace Team leader, you'll cross the line under two minutes of your goal finishing time.

The following pace groups will be offered and will start in the corresponding corral listed.

Corral B: 3:05, 3:15, 3:25, 3:35, 3:45
Corral C: 4:00
Corral D: 4:15, 4:30
Corral E: 4:45
Open Corral: 4:30, 4:45, 5:00, 5:30

Meet Your Pacer at the Expo
You can met your Pace Team leader before the race at the Expo. Ask them about their marathoning backgrounds, how they fuel themselves during the race, and any other helpful tips. Pace Leaders will also be handing out free Pace Bands.

Race Day
On race morning, you'll see them lined up according to their pace and holding signs with their finish times. Just fall-in with your group.
