    Manchester Marathon 2019 (03:48:14) - my first marathon

    On Sunday 7th April 2019, I completed my first marathon in Manchester, in a time of 03:48:14.

    The best thing I did was invest in a decent training plan. I opted for a Ben's Improver training plan, as it’s well structured & easy to understand. I value his knowledge & experience.

    The training plan was challenging but built up sensibly so confidence & fitness grew steadily and at no point did I feel the training was beyond me.

    The plan includes a great pacing chart, so every session has a recommended pace it should be run at for your finish time. I would recommend the training plan without hesitation and have since used Ben's Half Marathon Level 4 plan to achieve an 8 min PB.

    Whilst I was delighted to achieve a sub4 marathon time at the first attempt, it was never about time. I found greater meaning.

    I have taken the family marathon baton from my Dad. Hopefully, I can pass it onto my Daughter in the future.

    Most importantly, I got to share and experience, not only race day, but the full marathon training journey with my family.

    You only ever get your first marathon once.

    I wouldn’t change it in any way.


    I ran the London Marathon. It was my first marathon and completed it in 4hrs 39secs. Well structured plan and easy to understand.


    I found the plan extremely helpful in prepping for my first marathon, 2019 London marathon. After discussing with Ben which plan would suit my sub4 aim, I went for the L2 plan. It worked a treat and I came away with a 3.56. The plan is easy to follow and combined with Ben's YouTube videos and Strava posts, you can even more out of it. Can't thank you enough Ben. Stepping up to L3 for the prep for Berlin in September.

    Easy and simple.. thank you!

    Thank you Darren, well done on your first marathon!

    Top t-shirt!

    Another amazing tee!

    Another amazing product from Ben's growing merchandise! For me, it really is the best you can get. It supports a small business for one, supports Ben + (Sarah too) they are two great people and the merchandise is always top quality. Fit well, look good, feel good! Thanks again, Ben.


    Verry happy with the Cap. Used to run with other brands but this one is really nich
    Good looking, very light, easy to adjust and no sweat dripping in the eyes. For now on this is my race cap.
    I am just looking for a easy way to adjust the remaining strap, but it's fine tuning.
    Thanks for the good stuff and the personal greeting! All the best, Jan

    Great North Run Tally Hat

    We were running the Great North Run so decided to treat myself to a new running hat and chose the Tally.

    Great choice and the perfect running hat.

    Thank you Ben

    The Cap that Gets It Done

    This is a great, lightweight running cap that does a great job of keeping the sweat from running down my massive cranium!! First time ordering Ben Parkes merch - it won’t be the last either!!
