    Finished strong my first marathon

    Trained for my first marathon (Athens Marathon the Authentic) with this plan. I am very satisfied, i finished strong in 4h 42m. I modified the plan a bit to include more Hill Repeats as the course is hilly. Looking forward to trying L2. Cheers 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.
