Ten Thousand has developed a well-earned reputation for its high-quality, athlete-caliber running apparel. Their items are rigorously tested and are known to hold up against the wear and tear of outdoor training. Given that Ten Thousand lives and operates on the cutting edge, it’s no surprise that they are staying current with the public efforts to make more environmentally friendly products. Not wanting to deviate from the righteous eco-cause or its athletic roots, Ten Thousand has formed a collaboration with the famed ultra-endurance athlete and plant-based advocate, Rich Roll, to create their new, sustainable line of running wear: the FAR Collection.
The FAR Collection is a true collaboration of Ten Thousand’s vanguard approach to athletic wear and Rich Roll’s plant-based, high-performing athletic philosophy. Despite being designed to help carry runners farther than normal athletic wear, the FAR Collection is named after the recycled materials that make up the gear, which Rich dubbed Free Association Run. The FAR Collection consists of run shorts made of sweat-wicking and quick-drying recycled nylon fabrics, short-sleeve and long-sleeve run shirts made from recycled poly fabric, and a running beanie made of EcoVero Viscose. What’s more, the FAR Collection adds another layer of sustainability to their athletic wear by ensuring that the trims, hang tags, zipper tapes, and cords are made from recycled materials. Furthermore, the FAR Collection is GRS and Bluesign certified vegan, lending even more legitimacy to its ethically sourced status.
Of course, every piece in the FAR collection has gone through the rigorous 10,000 cycles of anti-abrasion testing that all Ten Thousand garments go through as well as a Polygiene Biostatic anti-odor treatment to keep your clothes smelling fresh no matter how many runs you go on. This collection is great for athletes and even better for the planet. The FAR Collection running apparel is out now and can be purchased on Ten Thousand’s website starting at $38.
