You realize that you're becoming a legitimate racer, not just a runner-

You've done the work and you're in great shape-

You've just selected your hottest new spikes or racing flats-

Now you're ready for the Williams Pace calculator.

Why? Because accurate pace is the essence of intelligent, productive training and racing. The Williams Pace Calculator shows you all the time and distance information you need to set and check your pace immediately, for workouts or any race distance, simply by manipulating the slide scale.


"Before each race, I make sure my runners
understand proper pace judgment. The
Williams Pace Calculator pinpoints each
interval. It helps them compete intelligently."

Tom Manning, coach,
Jesuit High School, Portland OR
