Pacer Team

Cort Basham

3:30 Lead Pacer

Cort has completed 25 marathons and ultras including 12 sub-3:00 efforts. He started running in 2001 after post-college life made his life-long habit of one-to-two hours of full-court basketball per day pretty difficult! He picked up running and fell in love with it. He set his marathon PR in the 2017 Louisiana Marathon in 2:49.33. While running brings him a lot of joy, perhaps the most enjoyable part of running for Cort comes through sharing it with kids. He is the assistant cross country coach at Bowling Green High/Junior High and previously helped develop run clubs at various schools in the city.


Travis Martin

3:45 Lead Pacer

Travis began running in High School and ran his first marathon in 1992 in 3:08 (Rocket City Marathon).  Since then, he has participated in various distance races including, full and half marathons, 5 and 10k events, as well as numerous trail and road relays.   Travis participated in the 2022 Boston Marathon finishing under 3:08.  Travis paces other marathons and events and excited to participate as a pacer during this year’s BG 26.2.

Billy Byrne

4:00 Lead Pacer

Billy has been running for 10 years now and absolutely loves to race! He loves the trails just as much as he loves road racing. He has run over 20 marathons, 2- 50K’s, multiple Bourbon Chases and Ragnars.
Billy ran the 2022 Boston Marathon and just got accepted into the 2024 race!
Billy’s current goal is to run a Sub-3 marathon. He ran 3:01:57 in Erie last month just coming up short and is planning his second attempt at the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon the week before Bowling Green!
Billy is married to his beautiful wife Kathryn and they have four children.  You can often find him and his family hiking on trails or attending weekend long running events with their camper loaded down and their children ready to run a race with Daddy.
