Our unique SmartPace pace bands combine a pacing strategy and adjustments specific to your course to provide a minute-by-minute game plan for race day. You don't run an even pace, so why should your generic pace band stay the same mile after mile? Is your first mile really the same speed as your last? What about a brutal 200ft climb?
We think you should pace with a plan for the race. Start slow, build a cushion, hit the wall. If it takes an extra 30 seconds to get up Heartbreak Hill at Mile 21, you need to plan to run 10 seconds faster for 3 miles before you get to Newton.
Choose from one of our proven "SmartPace" strategies (read more) or customize your own, and then choose your race. Your bands will have pace adjustments to fit the terrain of your particular course, whether it is Boston or a small race in Kansas.
Each order comes with 3 different goal times that you choose and some words of inspiration. These self-adhesive wristbands are printed on waterproof and tearproof paper that will last longer than you. We've helped thousands of runners keep on pace.
Visit our SmartPace info page for details on our pacing strategies, tips for using a pace band, GPS pointers and our SmartPace calculator.
We also have new 2XL pace bands with larger print!
Thanks, these came in handy as usual, and I managed a 1/2 PR of 1:44:42 (previous PR last year 1:46:46). Thanks again for this great product!

The bands arrived and look great. You guys are awesome! I really appreciate the excellent service and when I PR I'll give you the credit ( ok, some of the credit ).

I wanted to thank you for your assistance, you were a huge help and I did receive positive feedback on the pace bands. I hope we can do business again next year and if anyone asks me where to get the bands, I will recommend you guys.

"I thought your Pace Bands were key…both in providing me the right “Warm Up” strategy but also helping me not have to compute total times at specific mileages towards the end of the race…when my head started to get foggier."

Thanks so much! I have had a lot of success with your pace bands! :) Hopefully I'll use the 3:50 band to PR this May! Thanks again!

I have to say I have now run 3 races with your pace bands and I will never run without one. Each time I came in under my goal time, and each time I know I could not have made my goal without it!...I have told a lot of people in my running group about Races2Remember and I know it's catching on here in Dallas. I'll continue to do so! Thanks for helping me with "our" PR.

Races2Remember pace bands made all the difference in the world. I tell everyone that they must use your products. Your course-specific pace bands are incredible gauges when to conserve energy on slower miles with hills, and when to press the pace on faster miles during the race. There is no way that I would have beaten my goal times unless I had your pace bands as a guide. I am definitely a customer for life, huge fan of your products, and wish you all the best with your company.
