September issue RW p47...what a great idea the PaceTat is !

yeah great idea - pity there's such a limited variety of times.

I've e-mailed them and they say they are looking at expanding the range

I suppose demand will dictate greater variety of times but its a great way of being temporarily tattooed!

What's all this then?  Spill!

I noticed that. Great idea. How about doing it yourself though?
tattoo printer paper

Not sure if that link will work, otherwise here:

I was thinking that CH could print arbitrary times rather than choose from a selection.

thanks for that - looks like a good solution

Or you could write your pace times on paper - waterproof it with clear sellotape and tape that as a DIY wristband for nothing ?

Or get a real tatoo with your target pace.
11/08/2008 at 16:17
or a get a variety of target paces to cover all possible finish times...

For those people looking for a wider variety of times, just go to - this is the American site they have a lot more options available.  Price is only US$2.99 and shipping costs are pretty cheap as well.

I think it's a good idea, especially if my Garmin, (which is currently drying after taking in water during a run in the rain!!), doen't work come GNR day.

Only problem is, I might look like a prat wearing one.

I have just visited the bands ,web site. you can print off  various race distance times to suit your (dream) PB . cut this out , sellotape to waterproof and wear on wrist on the big day!!
