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!
I can't say enough about your pace bands - they were FABULOUS!!! It was so nice to 'take it easy' the last two miles.

I've used them in my several marathons and 1/2 marathons and they always help bring me in under my goal time. Best product on the market - hands down.

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.

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.

I have to say the best part of your product was the blurb on 'garmin creep' and also the tip about setting up my Garmin screen w/ those three data points that you recommend. Actually I used lap pace, lap distance and total time (not total distance) and that worked great.

At mile 9 I was feeling a bit draggy and looked at my garmin and my pace band and thought--this is doable. You kept me going all the way to the 50 yard line in the Husker stadium. Thank you for your good work.
