A full marathon and half marathon pace chart in km is a useful tool especially if you are training for a certain goal time.
They help to show you the average pace you will need to sustain over the course of the half marathon if you want to desired half marathon time.
Another equally helpful tool is to use a running pace calculator!
You're in luck because I have both a half marathon pace chart in kilometers and a running pace calculator ready to help you achieve your finishing time goal!
If you are looking for the running pace calculator head over to this page to pop in your kilometer pace and see what your goal finish time would be.
If you're here for the full marathon and half marathon pace chart then read on...
Let me quickly explain how this half marathon pace chart works:
In the first column on the left you will see half marathon race paces ranging in 15 second intervals starting with a 5 minutes per kilometer pace all the way up to 16 minutes per kilometer pace.
In the very last column on the right hand side of the chart you will see what the half marathon finish time is for the corresponding pace per kilometer.
The middle columns shows you at what your target time stamps should be for each kilometer that you run if you want to hit that specific finish time for the half marathon shown in the left hand side of the column.
Note: This pace chart isn't just for half marathons and marathons, it can be used for all different distances such as the 10K, 5K, 20 miler and to utilize for your long runs!
You will need to scroll to the bottom of this embedded spreadsheet in order to scroll to the right and see the pace breakdown for all the kilometers up to 21km. 👉

If you aren't sure what your kilometer pace should be read up on this page to help you figure out what a realistic marathon pace goal would be for you based off of your previous marathon training, shorter races and race times, such as a 10k, your 1 mile pace or your current fitness level.
It is worth remembering that once you know what pace per kilometer you want to run at you will then be able to find a training plan, know what pace group to run with during a marathon, and see faster race results because you have a PLAN!
Practice your target pace on long runs (doing goal race pace long runs) so that you will be execute that pace during your race since you have put in the appropriate training!
I always like to recommend to first time marathon runners to set the goal to finish the marathon.
That is an incredible achievement in and of itself!
It also takes that mental pressure off of you to hit your goal marathon pace during the marathon when you mentally might need to just coach yourself through the miles instead of worrying about your average speed and goal race time.
Once you have run one marathon, you might then choose to break a goal marathon time such as a sub 5 hour or even 4 hour marathon time by including speed workouts such as tempo runs (you can find a full guide on how to run tempo runs right here) and interval running workout (guide on how to run interval workouts here!)
