MIDDLETON, Mass. , Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacebands, LLC who produce and market patent-pending reusable silicone bands that contain race data for the marathon and other distances have announced today that they have signed Ryan Hall, America's top marathoner, to a multi-year endorsement deal and that they have launched a Kickstarter campaign featuring Ryan the details of which can be found at: .  


"We are incredibly proud to have attracted an athlete of Ryan's caliber to our organization," said Gretchen Fishman, Managing Director of Pacebands, LLC.  "Having the fastest American marathoner, someone who has run 2:04:58, interested in what you are doing is incredibly gratifying.  It means that we were onto something when we created Pacebands," said Fishman.  She went on to explain, "Existing solutions are either one-time use temporary tattoos, paper bands, or a good old fashioned magic marker to the arm.  Our bands are a welcome alternative and Ryan's affiliation with our brand says it all.  He is at the very top of the sport and his support speaks volumes."

Ryan Hall offered additional context:  "I like the bands because I can use them during my training sessions and races.  They are great because they are reusable and I don't even notice they are on my wrist.  Meanwhile, I can always look down at my target PR finish time for inspiration when I am out on a run.  I can also use bands with different paces for different workouts."

Pacebands currently has bands in the marathon and half marathon distance which have splits in miles for U.S. athletes as well as a line of metric marathon bands.  They plan to use proceeds from their Kickstarter campaign to produce 5K, 10K, and metric half marathon bands.
