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

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!

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.

I wanted to thank you for your assistance, you were a huge help and I did receive positive feedback on the pace bands. I hope we can do business again next year and if anyone asks me where to get the bands, I will recommend you guys.

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.

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!
