My friend is running the Ironman Austria this July 2012. She was hoping I could pace her during the last 30k or so of the running segment. Does anyone know if this is possible. It would make a big difference to have her friend and occasional training partner there to push her through. I'd obviously clear out in the last kilometer or so to let her cross that finishing line on her own. Thoughts?

No, it's absolutely forbidden. Any outside assistance at all to a competitor will get them disqualified. Running 3/4 of the marathon with her is bound to get you seen by one of the marshals.

Thank's Ultra Ironwolf. I've had friends pace me in marathons and it seems common practice in many long distance running-only races. It's good to know this isn't so with Ironmans! We'll just have to support her on the sidelines
