Pace Teams

Want to have fun with a group and yet keep your desired pace? Run with a Pace Team leader!

HOW TO FIND THEM ON RACE DAY

Pace team leaders will be holding signs indicating their pace on race day in the start corrals and throughout most of the marathon run. They will also have their pace time labeled on their back. The pace team will have a booth at the Prevea Health & Fitness Expo and will be available to answer questions on Friday and Saturday. On race day, you can meet them in the Start Corrals 30 minutes prior to the start of the race.

JOINING THE GROUP

There is no cost or need to pre-register for the pace team. Nor is there any obligation to stay with the group you choose. You may surge ahead or drop back at will. Running together gives the group a collective energy and enthusiasm that supports and enhances everybody’s marathon experience.

WHO THEY ARE

Below is a list of each pace team leader and the pace/wave they will be in.

For more information about the Pace Team contactCarrie Miller at carrielmiller99@gmail.com

Scoring & Timing

Your Cellcom race bib will utilize MyLaps© BIBTAG technology.  This system does not use a conventional timing “chip”, but rather an electronic reader strip mounted to the back side of the participant’s bib.  You will notice a metallic strip, surrounded by a foam pad.  The foam pad acts as a necessary insulator between the runner and the electronic reader.  The BIBTAG system cannot be altered in any way prior to or during the event. Please DO NOT try to remove it!

Please make sure wear your bib on the front of your body and on the outside of your clothing at all times during our events (doing anything different will reduce the readability of your results).

The bib is your “proof of purchase” to our race staff and allows participant access to course support and access into the Lambeau Field player tunnel.

No bib means no access into Lambeau!

Our security staff will be instructed to escort runners without visible bibs (“bandit” runners) from the stadium.

MyLaps BIBTAG© instructions:

  • Keep the bib that was assigned to you at packet pickup. Bibs are non-transferable.
  • Do not alter the BIBTAG area on your bib.
  • Wear your bib on the front outside of your clothing at all times during the race.  Do not take it off until after you cross the finish line.
  • You do not need to return or remove the BIBTAG portion of your bib…the bib is yours to keep!

Gear Check

Let us keep track of your belongings while you race!

The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon offers a Gear Check program for the individual marathon and half marathon participants on Sunday of event weekend.  Gear Check (for distance runners only) will be available Sunday morning beginning at 6:00 am in the northeast corner of the Lambeau Field parking lot.  Yellow school busses will be parked on the perimeter of the lot along Lombardi Avenue and Oneida Street. Gear bags will be supplied with your packets. Runners should hand off their gear bag with their corresponding bib number on it to the volunteers stationed in front of the bus corresponding to their bib number.  There will be areas at the Prevea Health and Fitness Expo where you can mark your gear check bag.

Please note: Race organizers are not responsible for items placed in gear bags becoming lost, stolen or damaged.  Do not place easily lost (e.g. wedding rings) or easily damaged (e.g. smartphones or digital cameras) items in the bags.

After the race, participants who dropped off gear bags in the morning will need to return to the same buses where they dropped them off in order to retrieve their belongings.  Gear check pickup will be available throughout the morning until the course closes.  PARTICIPANTS (OR THEIR FAMILY/FRIENDS) MUST PRESENT THEIR MATCHING BIB AT THE GEAR CHECK TABLES IN ORDER TO RETRIEVE THEIR GEAR CHECK BAGS.


After 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, any unclaimed bags will be relocated to the marathon office. These bags will be available for pickup by scheduling an appointment with the marathon staff. Call the office at (920) 432-6272 or email infocgbm@netnet.net to coordinate pickup.

Gear Check will not be available for the Cellcom Marathon Relay, the Cellcom 5K or WPS Kids’ Power Run events.
