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!

success stories

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.

Wonderful, thank you for sharing your expertise with us. This is the first time our club has done marathon pace groups, etc. so its been a learning experience.

Found your race bands to be fantastic. I'll spread the word to everyone I know with marathon plans!
  - G.S., Lenexa, KS

It was an awesome, awesome experience and my pace band was so critical. I honestly don't think I would have been able to conserve the energy necessary to finish so strong without it! I will try to get into Boston 2012 and will certainly wear a pace band again to keep me organized.
  - R.H., Reno, NV

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.
  - J.F., AL

As someone with an engineering background, I find the combination of the pace bands along with my Garmin GPS (310XT model with heart rate monitor and cadence sensor) a good way to "tune" my performance.

"I like to say, and I truly believe, that every run brings new experiences. You just don't know what they might be until you actually do the run. That's one of my major reasons for pushing out the front door as often as I do - the adventure of it all." Amby Burfoot, Editor at Large, Runner's World
