The Texas Big Star Half Marathon & 5K believes the best half marathons have the best pacers. With that mindset, the Texas Big Star is paced by the Craig Ranch Run Club. We have pacers every 5 minutes from 1:35-3:00, plus a special group of pacers for those trying to break 2 hours! Our pacers come from all different backgrounds. To learn about your pacer, check out their bios below.
In addition, this year the Texas Big Star Half Marathon & 5K is rolling out BIGSTARSUB2. We know that breaking 2:00 hours is a big milestone for a lot of runners. With that in mind we have added pacers every 2.5 minutes from 1:50 to 2:10. These additional pacers will be there to help encourage you and ensure you stay on your pace to hit that BIGSTARSUB2!
Running for me is all about the journey and the friendships we make along the way. Looking forward to seeing everyone Run Big Star this year!!!
After having kids I got more involved in running to show them the importance of lifelong fitness. In March of 2014 I ran my first half marathon and fell in love with the distance. It was a challenge and a thrill all at once. In 2016 I wanted to give back to the running community and started pacing half-marathons. I love helping people find a love for running and meet their own goals. Say Hi to me along the course, run with me or let’s try a moving selfie.
