RacePacer
 

RacePacer is a wireless, programmable get-the-athlete focused-on-their-pace tool for those who want to be the best.

There's never been a training tool like this for track and XC athletes. Running fast is being aware of what your pace actually is throughout a race. To get control of pace, and to improve times, athletes have to be aware of what they are doing in practice so they can work on what is holding them back in races. The RacePacer™ empowers athletes of all abilities to pinpoint just where they need to maintain their effort during workouts. Using The RacePacer as a training tool will help athletes increase speed and endurance, and ultimately lead to faster times.

How does it help?
RacePacer benefits more than just the athlete; it benefits coaches, as well.

How does it work?

How does it help?

RacePacer benefits more than just the athlete, it benefits coaches, as well.

Benefits for Coaches
  • It lets the coach know where the athlete's speed increases or decreases within a workout, giving them a better understanding of strengths and weaknesses.
  • It motivates groups of athletes to stick together, promoting unity.
  • It can be used indoor or outdoor on any standard or non-standard track. It can even be used off the track for fartlek, hill or steps training.

Benefits for Athletes

  • It allows athletes that train alone to simulate the positive effects of being pulled through the workout with others.
  • It teaches the athlete to know where they are in their workout and in their pace.

How does it work?

The RacePacer is made up of a Racer component and a series of Pacer components. The Racer unit is a programmable computer that allows you to set up the workout you want, from sprinter high speed to multiple mile pace work. The Pacer units receive commands from the Racer unit to keep the athlete focused on pace. Each Pacer unit emits a highly visible yellow warning light as the athletes are within seconds of their programmed target time, followed by a red light when the target time is reached. Athletes focus on the station, knowing that if they aren't past the station before the red light comes on, they have missed their time.

Utilizing the PALM as the wireless computer, The RacePacer uses proprietary software to create and store workouts and workout performances for review and future use. Future software upgrades are free with purchase.

Program the Racer computer (PALM) unit for the workout. You build the workouts. You set up the splits for any distances, at any pace. And the splits are variable speed. You can speed up or slow down any splits during any portion of the workout. You can vary the split times between any two Pacer units during any lap of the workout. Program a two-mile workout using even splits. Or program the pace to change at any distance. You also control the delay between the Yellow "warning" lights and the Red pinpointed pace lights. The Racer Unit sends pace information to Pacer units via wireless transmission.

 

A message from the inventor:

"People are always asking me, 'How do we get our athletes running so fast?'* Running fast is being aware of your pace all the way through the race. To get control of your pace, to improve your times, you have to be aware of what you are doing in practice. During workouts, The RacePacer allows you to pinpoint just where you need to maintain effort and teaches the athlete to do it. With the help of The RacePacer you now can use the same techniques in your workouts that helped many national champions and record breakers reach their goals. I believe using The RacePacer in your workout program will help coaches and athletes increase speed and endurance and ultimately achieve much faster times."
