The Plano Pacers Running Club was formed in 1978 by the City of Plano Parks and Recreation Department and a group of thirty local runners. The objectives of the Running Club were the promotion and encouragement of healthful jogging and distance running. The objectives were supported by stressing the fun and exhilaration of running and its contribution to physical fitness, weight control and health. The club was directed to stimulate and maintain motivation among runners by increasing communication among runners and prospective runners. The Plano Pacers Running Club has successfully operated as a family-oriented organization for four decades. It currently has over 700 members and is growing! Plano Pacers is for all ages and ability levels. Members include children and seniors. Members include recreational and competitive runners, families and people just wanting to improve their health. To that end it sponsors 12 monthly races and 12 "prediction" runs per year. The monthly races are at 8:00am on the last Saturday of each month, and are held at Bob Woodruff park. Our prediction runs are the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm and are held at Schimelpfenig Library.
