    pursuers

    He had a 100 metre start on his pursuers.

    What does 'pursuers' mean here? Does this sentence talk about a race?

    Re: pursuers

    'capturer' means someone who follows you in an effort to capture you

    Does this sentence talk about a race?
    Don't think so, no.

    A pursuer is someone who pursues you - follows you with the probable intention of capturing you. Without full context, it is most likely that "he" is trying to escape from someone.
