Athleta’s “Crush of Adrenaline” Fashion Show Features Headsweats

Athleta’s “Crush of Adrenaline” Fashion Show Features Headsweats

Who knew that Headsweats would be featured in New York Fashion Week?! Well, that’s exactly what happened last Wednesday at Athleta’s first ever fashion show. Athleta came to us asking to custom sublimate Race Hats for their new Fall line. The item in question? This beauty:

Athleta FloralWe were able to get our PR Firm, Darby Communications, an invitation to the show in NYC so they could check it out and take some photos. The show itself was a bolt of energy. The models – or rather, athletes – were not just walking a runway, they were jumping, leaping, running, yoga-ing, and dancing all over the stage. It was more of an acrobatic arts show than a fashion runway. The audience loved every minute of it! Cheers were heard after solo dance numbers, hoots and hollers sounded after a breakdancing bit, with a big round of applause at the close of the show. Here are captured moments from #CrushOfAdrenaline:

Headsweats Introduces the Honor Boston Collection: Fifty Percent of Sales Will Go To The One Fund of Boston

Headsweats Introduces the Honor Boston Collection: Fifty Percent of Sales Will Go To The One Fund of Boston

 

In remembrance of those affected by the 2013 Boston Marathon attacks, Headsweats has designed a limited edition Honor Boston headwear collection. Fifty percent of all sales from the Honor Boston Collection will be donated to The One Fund of Boston, which will use the funds to offer assistance to the bombing victims and the greater Boston community.

“As avid supporters of the running community, we wanted to find a way to honor those HeadsweatsBostonLinewho were affected by the terrible events that happened at the Boston Marathon last year,” states Mike McQueeney, President of Headsweats. “The Honor Boston Collection provides a way for us to give back while providing support for those who were affected by this tragedy.”

For over 15 years, Headsweats has proudly supported the athletic community with quality, innovative athletic headwear they can depend on when training and competing. Headsweats is proud to support The One Fund of Boston, which has successfully distributed over $60 million dollars to victims and their families and will continue to support the ongoing needs of those most affected by the attacks at the 2013 Boston Marathon. The Honor Boston Collection includes 3 unique logos on the new Eventure Grid Race Hat and Supervisor.

Awesome Cycling Events For the Die-Hard in All of Us

Awesome Cycling Events For the Die-Hard in All of Us

We thought it was only fair, after posting blogs on different types of 5k events and then mud and obstacle races throughout the country, that we should focus on this year’s lineup of cycling events across the United States. We know an awful lot of you that would rather spend your time on wheels rather than pounding the pavement, plus there are those of you who like to do both, God help ya. So here it is: a breakdown of what we think are truly awesome cycling events for the remainder of 2014. Remember to always wear safety gear and cycling caps from Headsweats. Complete race information can be found at individual race websites.

5. Maine Lighthouse Ride – With four distances available at 25, 42, 65 and 100 miles, this ride, along the coast of Maine allows riders to take in views of several different lighthouses along the way. Register soon though as this ride is limited to the first 1000 riders.

4. Tour De Frost – For those empathetic and charitable riders looking to make a difference for the less fortunate among us, this race in Rockford, Illinois is a 25 mile bone-chilling jaunt.

3. Solvang Century – Winding through the hills of Santa Barbara County in California, the Solvang Century is considered one of the finest century rides in the nation with its 5 star route. Plan for a BBQ and party afterwards with a massage therapist on hand.

2. 3 State 3 Mountain – Beginning and ending in host city Chattanooga, Tennessee, the century ride traverses three mountains through 3 states. Or choose lesser distance rides of 85, 62, or 31 miles.

1. Colorado Death Ride – 16,500 vertical feet, 232 miles and 5 mountain passes over a 3 day ride. This ride, though brutal takes cyclists through some of the most beautiful country this nation has to offer.

5 Mud Runs You Just Gotta Try

5 Mud Runs You Just Gotta Try

Almost all of us had done it as children at one point or another to the dismay of mothers all over the country. And we would be hard-pressed to find anybody who regretted doing it. In fact, it almost seems that it was basically a rite-of-passage for most of us. In fact, playing the mud is often a treasured childhood memory.

Which explains the recent booming popularity of the mud run and obstacle course races that have spread, well…. like a muddy hand print, all over the nation. All spring and summer long, every state in the nation will be hosting dozens of chances for grown adults to play in the mud in ways they haven’t since they were 12. We’re just rating a few of these that hold events in multiple cities over several dates. Find out more about each race at their respective websites. Oh, and don’t forget your Headsweats running hats and visors.

5. The Rugged Maniac

As brutal as it sounds, the maniac trips up mud runners with 20 obstacles including a 100 foot “suicide slide”. Afterward try your hand at mud tug-of-war and further your child-like delight with an adult bounce house and even a mechanical bull. Afterparty includes showers, food and beer. In 20 cities across the US.

4. Run For Your Lives

This obstacle race includes the stuff of nightmares. As part of the obstacles along the race route, zombies (yes, zombies) lurk to attack mud-covered human flesh. If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead you may want to check if yours is one of the 23 cities chosen to host the not-all-that-gruesome race. By the way, you can register as either a runner or a zombie.

3. Dirty Girl Mud Run

For all you, uh, “ladies” out there. The dirty girl mud run is exclusively for you and your team of gal pals to bring out your rambunctious inner child. With more than 40 Dirty Girl events across the country, this untimed obstacle course lets you decide which obstacles you’re up to completing.

2. The Spartan Race

Now, we’re getting serious. Though it is still a mud run, the Spartan truly tests obstacle runners at three different levels – go easy on yourself (kinda) on the 3+ mile, 15+ obstacle course; push to see what you’re made of on the 8 mile course that puts you through more than 20 obstacles or go for the most challenging course “The Spartan Beast” -with 25 obstacles spread out over more than 12 miles.

1.  Tough Mudder

If you’ve been paying attention to these races at all over the last few years, you’ve probably been familiar with this one. The Mudder at about 10 to 12 miles long, featuring 25 military-style obstacles, is now international with events across 5 continents. Parties for participants (of which only about 78 percent finish) include tattoo artists who will imprint the Tough Mudder logo as a lifelong memento of the event.

Keeping your fitness routine is made, well, less routine with events like mud runs and we look forward to seeing you out there – in your Headsweats running hats and visors of course. We’d say try to keep it clean but, yeah….that’s not gonna happen. cropped-tt2013woods1.jpg

Headsweats 15 Days of Giveaways

To celebrate 15 years as a leader in performance headwear, we are partnering with other outdoor and fitness industry brands for a 15 day promotion. Beginning November 15th, we will host our “15 Days of Giveaways” celebration!

“For our 15th anniversary celebration, we wanted to give back to our fans who have been so loyal to us throughout the years,” states Mike McQueeney, President of Headsweats. “And what better way than to partner up with brands who we have worked with us over the past 15 years and do an exciting multi-day giveaway on our Facebook page.”

Headsweats Perspiration Technology Headwear® was founded in the winter of 1998 by shoe industry veteran and obsessed cyclist, Alan Romick. Frustrated by the perils of heavy sweat blindness, migrating sunscreen, and odd sunburn patterns on his head from his helmet, Romick set out to develop headgear that worked. Starting with one product — The Cotton Classic – Headsweats quietly became elite athletes’ secret weapon around the world. Worn by Tour de France riders, Ironman racers and winners, and countless marathoners and cyclists around the world, Headsweats has more triathlon finishers and podiums than any other headwear company. In 2013, Headsweats partnered with Top of the World caps to bring performance headwear to the world of college fans, offering multiple styles with 350 college and university logos.
