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.

We also have new 2XL pace bands with larger print!
Once again, your terrain specific bands kept me on/above pace the whole way.

You guys rock! I wore my 1:40 pace band in Omaha over the weekend, and blasted through it, taking 9 minutes off of my PR, and ran a 1:35! Thank you!

Whatever you guys do in terms of matching the splits with the course terrain really, really works...Thanks for helping me to perform better than ever--another PR at age 54!

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 ).

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.

Had the best race yet and LOVED that I didn't spend my time doing the math in my head. The pace band certainly helped.
