IMPORTANT NOTICE!! No Shipping through OCTOBER 6
R2R is going to Greece to crew for a friend running the 156 mile Spartathlon. We don't want to offer less than great service while we are gone, so we will be CLOSED and won't be able to print or ship orders until we return. ****If your race is the weekend of 10/7-10/8, we can email a PDF of your pace bands, but not your actual pace bands. We are not going to risk your not getting it if we try to overnight them. We apologize if we can't help with your race before we get back.

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 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 couldn't have done it without them!!! I told everyone I ran with about them. I ran with the 3:55 and it was the best thing I could have done. I got slightly ahead in the first half and stuck with my band times exactly in the second. It let me relax and enjoy the race despite my anxiousness on my first Marathon. Thank you thank you thank you!!! I'm never running without them!

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