    Good plan😊 Thank you 🙏

    Another PR

    This is my second plan from Ben in a year. First I got my 10k PR done, now it was time to get under 1u25 in the Half Marathon. It's insane how good this plan works. I finished in 1u21 and did 6(!) minutes from my previous PR which a ran just 6 months ago. Wearing a Ben Parkes hat, of course helped me as well. ;-) Next up: Marathon sub 3 plan! #gettingitdone

    L5 half marathon training plan

    I've just finished week 1 of the program and I'm very pleased. A great guide and easy to follow. My race is off-road and I mix it up with club runs so I can't follow it too the letter but thats fine. Anyone who asks about training programs I also recommend Ben Parkes.

    L5 half m plan

    Hi, I am in the third weekend of the program and I am very satisfied, I recover quickly between runs and feel improvement ... We will wait for the official measurement day of the half marathon, believe that if I can stick to the program I will be satisfied and of course a good result. I bought the shoes and you have a part in my decision through the social networks you responded to my question, thank you so much so far. Enjoy following you on the networks

    L5 half marathon plan

    This plan came at the perfect time for me having run 1:26 in November 2020. It's my goal to run sub 1:20 and I'm using this plan for a race in the Spring. What I like most about Ben's plans is that they are very clear and the workouts aren't overly complex. They also allow a high degree of flexibility and are good value for money. I've every confidence I will be a much fitter runner by the end of the plan.

    Half Marathon Training Plan (Level 5 Advanced Plus)

    Brought this plan to help reduce my half marathon PB time and i am a month into the plan. It is simple to follow and allows accountability (it is sat on my fridge! Follows sound training principles of easy running to build up mileage combined with hard interval or threshold sessions which are always varied and interesting. I have already seen significant benefits to my flat speed and endurance. A fantastic plan and great value - Thanks Ben!

    L5 1/2 Marathon Training Plan

    I've been using a home made training plan for 1/2's for the last 20 years, but as you get older I need to be a bit wiser so ordered the L5 plan.
    It's easy to follow and I'm one week in and after a year of lockdown may be a bit ambitious for the fastest goal, but I'm 'getting it done'.
    It gives three time goals for the 1/2 but all the same training so you can guage you're current fitness and adjust accordingly.
    Hoping for sub 80, but age, family and work are things to contend with these days.
    Like I said as you get older you don't want to give up your fitness and although PBs may be a thing of the past, with this plan I can still give the youngsters a run for their money.
    Fingers crossed Brighton Half is going to run this year and we all stay safe whatever race you run.
    This is the first plan I've purchased and won't be the last.

    L5 half marathon plan

    I’m in the second week of the L5 half marathon plan. It’s well structured and very easy to follow. All workouts are clearly explained and it follows basic running principles. Look forward to see the results! Thanks Ben

    The Perfect Half Marathon Plan

    For years I’ve been saying “I’ll start training again to beat my HM time of 74mins” but just not had the motivation or get up and go! Just been stuck doing the same boring 10-30miles a week. But that’s when I could be bothered!
    Then I stumbled across Bens YouTube channel back in December. Since then I’ve seen every single video! Absolutely hooked now. After doing RED January I decided to buy Bens L5 half marathon plan!
    I’m now on week 2 and loving every moment, #GETTINGITDONE
    It’s a really easy plan to follow and think the progression is perfect.
    When I started the plan I was probably around the 90mins HM time, so looking forward to see how much I’ve progressed by the End
    Thanks Ben

    A hat for all occasions!

    Excellent lightweight design and I'm not normally a hat person. Great for both running and casual wear.

    Super Hat

    Light and comfy. Adjustable band is snag proof - no daft Velcro. The wee messages on the cards are just awesome.

    Excellent kit

    I usually did not run with a cap until I tried this beauty! It helps to keep the rain drops of my glasses as well as protect from the sunshine, excellent for any kind of weather. I truly recommend it, light, comfortable, you forget you are wearing it!

    Top product

    Light, practical and compfy hat for runners and daily use.

    Great Running Hat!

    I have been wearing my Ben Parkes hat for the milder spring weather we get here in New York State. It’s really great for cool morning runs. I also wear it for rainy “hat forward” conditions.
    The overall design and colors are really great. I will absolutely get another hat from Ben Parkes.
