Chase the Pace returns to Vancouver on August 11th! Far too often, track meets are exclusive to the fastest runners; we created Chase the Pace to rewrite that narrative. Chase the Pace gives everyone a spot on the start line. An event where everyone is treated like an elite, with pacers in all races and fellow athletes cheering trackside. Join in some fun with your local running community!
The adult races are all 5000M (12.5 laps of the track). This is a distance that we think is a good mix of speed and endurance.
We’ll have heats (that’s track meet talk for different waves or races) for 35-minute runners, 15-minute runners, and everything in between. You’ll be placed in a heat with runners of similar ability. We will also have expert pacers to help you get the most out of your 12.5 laps of the track. We do the pacing, you do the chasing.
This event is open to all runners of all abilities.
Want to bring your active and speedy kids along? Awesome! We are also running a 400m kid’s race.
