Howdy iRunFar fans!

What an exciting week it’s already been here at iRunFar and it’s about to get more exciting. We’re so pleased to have worked with two of our Western States 100 coverage partners–Drymax and BUFF®–to provide two new amazing pieces of iRunFar gear! What’s more, we’ve now got an (admittedly simple) iRunFar store, where you can finally pick up all your iRunFar gear in one spot.

For many years, I wore the Drymax Hot Weather Sock as my go-to trail running sock. Then, last year, Drymax launched the Hawks sock and made my favorite even better. Above the foot, the sock is thin and high breathable. Below the foot and in the heel is full-length cushioning with friction-reducing PTFE. The sock height is a bit higher around the ankle than the Hot Weather, which is nice for the occasional ankle-biter rock. All in all, the Hawks instantly became my daily run sock and, now, the iRunFar Drymax Sock will be just that. I trust it’ll be yours, too!

We also worked with BUFF® to develop an iRunFar exclusive design of their BUFF® Original Multifunctional Headwear. We love it and think you will, too. Get yours now before they’re gone! As you likely know, BUFF® Original Multifunctional Headwear is simple, effective, and highly adaptable. At its core it’s a moisture-managing microfiber fabric that is wind resistant and able to control odor. BUFF®Original Multifunctional Headwear can be worn more than 12 different ways, from a cap to a balaclava to a hair tie, for a personalized style and perfect fit.

Now, head on over to the iRunFar Store and pick up some great new gear! It’s a great way to support iRunFar’s work!
