(Free) Pace Calculator + Miles Split Chart

A pace calculator, and keeping a firm reign on your race pace can make all the difference in being able to meet a time goal or missing it by a margin. Keeping your stamina throughout the race is important if you are to keep strong to the finish and not lose precious minutes towards the end of your race. 

Elite marathoners/racers usually run with people called "pacers" who set a pace that the runner should keep in order to meet their time goal. Some marathons have pace groups that help to get groups of people wanting to finish in a certain time obtain their goal. (For example, the Kansas City Marathon has wonderful, accurate pacer groups to help those wanting to finish the marathon in 6 hours all the way down to 3 hours.)

First up is the pace calculator but there is also a half marathon and marathon mile pace chart following, to tell you what time you should be at what mile for the goal pace that you have chosen. 

Pace Calculator 

Here is your nifty pace calculator. All you need to do is double click the "Enter Your Goal Race Pace" boxes and then enter in the minutes and seconds of your goal race pace. Your marathon and half marathon finishing times will then pop up automatically! 

And...if you are not sure of what a good goal race pace is for you to enter in the pace calculator, the Runner's Pace Kit will help you figure that out!



If you want to have personalized answers to these questions: 

  1. What is your fitness level/Vo2max?
  2. What is your maximum sustainable running speed?
  3. What is a realistic goal pace for you to run at your current fitness level?
  4. What is a realistic goal time you should set to finish the race?
  5. How can you implement this information into your training plan with the 4 types of training workouts and what your EXACT pace needs to be for each training run?

I suggest making a dirt cheap (limited time) $5 investment and buying the Runner's Pace Kit that includes a 22-page Training Ebook and 5 calculators that will personalize your training plan.

How to Use the Following Pace Chart for Race Mile Split Times

This is pretty self-explanatory so if you want, just skip down to the bottom where you can find the calculator. 

The chart is divided into Half Marathon and Marathon. The Marathon chart  starts off where the Half-Marathon pace calculator leaves off (mile 14).

Some racers like to print off their time goals and the time they should have at each mile and staple it around their wrists during a race. This is helpful especially since you then don't have to remember what time you should be at for each mile that your goal predicts.

In any case it is always handy to have a pace calculator around for easy reference. A quick pace calculation can give you a good idea of where you are at, how you've improved and what potential you have!

Let this chart be your guide to setting realistic time goals and you will be on the road to racing success! It's all mapped out for you with the pace calculator!
