Running 500km in 5 days and zero chafing issues!

Running 500km in 5 days and zero chafing issues!


Vol state 500k running Philip Vondra

Path Projects customer Philip Vondra emailed us after completing the Vol State 500km race: 

''I wore the Sykes shorts and Tahoe 5'' base liner the whole time (5 days) and I had zero chafing issues. Super comfortable. The light color was perfect and I never felt overheated. The race was a total epic adventure. Running through the small towns and heat of Tennessee was really good fun. During the days it was well over 100f and humid! I have had big problems with chafing but Path Projects has solved those issues for me.''
