For fitness, health, competitive spirit or the pure joy of the outdoors, running is both a pastime and a sport that can be enjoyed by virtually anyone of any age.

Since inception, Canaan Valley Half Marathon has dedicated its business to inspiring and supporting runners from all walks of life. Founded by Robby McClung of Elkins, WV, the business has been a passion project and a pillar of the local community.

Always looking for new and innovative ways to give back, Canaan Valley Half Marathon has recently launched a new and resourceful running blog, as well as a free running pace calculator.

Free Running Pace Calculator

The team at Canaan Valley Half Marathon recently launched an incredible resource for runners: a free running pace calculator.

Whether training for a new personal record, or for an upcoming race, pacing is an incredibly important aspect of the sport, and when done right, can optimize outcomes while reducing the risk of injury or overexertion at certain stages of the race.

The Importance of Running Pace


A runners’ pace is used to calculate the time it takes to run a single mile. Proper pacing can aid a runner in energy preservation, energy optimization, endurance, and improving run times. Monitoring and measuring pace can provide a runner with key information that can be used to adjust their training and recovery regimen to achieve the best results over time.
