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!
Thanks Molly and Al! My last race (Phoenix 1/2) I had a huge PR using your pace bands. I'm going to use the 3:50 band for this race and see if I can BQ. Thanks for your help along the way!

I took off 33 minutes from my last marathon. I felt great running at the slower pace and I didn't feel pain until mile 24, which by then I knew I made my goal. Thank you so much. I had an awesome race and I know it was a lot of help from following the warm up pacing band.

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.

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!

We both had our pace bands on and knew when the hills were coming! I really think they are the most helpful in the first 3 miles of the race...i look down at it for those first three miles and it seems to be screaming at me to SLOW DOWN and let the less informed people pass me!
