Words to run by

"I knew, at some level, that running was both creating my life and saving it. After years of smoking, drinking and eating more than my share, I realized that running was the only path that would lead to a new and better me. And I never want to stray from that path again..." John Bingham, Runner's World

pace bandOur pace teams rely on SmartPace pace bands to meet their goal time and stick to their pacing strategy. Unlike most pace bands, which are "even splits" all the way down, our SmartPace bands are specially designed to incorporate the pacing strategy and any changes for hills. It will show you, mile by mile, what you pace should be for the mile and the elapsed time.

We are proud to partner with Races2Remember.com on these bands. They create custom pace bands using the SmartPace strategy, and can customize bands for the elevation of any course and any pace (and any pacing strategy).

For select races, bands will be available for you to pick up at the Pacer table. Check the pacer info site at your race website to find out. You may also purchase sets of the same SmartPace bands our pacers will use directly from Races2Remember.com. The bands come in sets of 2 and are available for each of the Pace Team goal times. Races2Remember can also make custom bands for any other finish time, and for any other race.

Races2Remember also creates MyNames bibs to show your name during a race (to help get moral support and cheering!), as well as CheeringSigns, BackStories photo back bibs and custom tattoos.

Create a free Chase Chart to help friends and family find you on the course based on your finish time.
after you race, please come back and leave comments about your pacer, and complete a survey to help us improve.

SmartPacing is organized by The Runners's Edge in Kansas City and The Runners's Edge of the Rockies in Denver, with support from Races2Remember.com.
