sb10065324k-001The MIDWEST DISTANCE CLASSIC will make every effort to recruit pacesetters for each heat of our individual races. This can be very difficult, however, so we invite coaches to contact us with the names of athletes who will assist their athletes in achieving their time goals as pacesetters.

Pacesetters must be of the same gender of the race, but do not have to be high school runners.

Pacesetters will receive complimentary entry to the meet and a meet T-shirt.

We are looking for pace setters who can hit the following splits in our “A” heats:

Girls Races

  • 800m: 63-65 (400m)
  • 1600m: 2:30 (800m)
  • 3200m: 5:15-5:40 (1600m)
  • 2000m Steeple: 3:40-3:45 (1000m)

Boys Races

  • 800m: 52.5-53.5 (400m)
  • 1600m: 2:00-2:04 (800m)
  • 3200m: 4:25-4:30 (1600m)
  • 2000m Steeple: 3:05-3:10 (1000m)
