Enter your time goal and distance, then hit the big green button to view a SmartPace band in action, read about our pacing strategies and see how we can help you race smarter.

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!

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 ).

Thanks Molly & Al for the great pacing strategy for the Little Rock Marathon. Your 4:55 pace band helped me get my sub-5 hour marathon finally! :)

"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."

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.

Thank you. Of all the Internet services yours is by far the most friendly and responsive!

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.

Thanks! The strategy on the pacing band was perfect.
