gifts for runnersWith November in full swing – and festive tunes already starting to infiltrate the airwaves – there is no ignoring the growing need to start Christmas shopping.

At Run4It, we have a wide collection of gifts to suit every runner, whatever their age, level or approach to the sport; be it fast or slow, for fun or for fitness. I’m here to guide you through our carefully curated gift categories to kick start your festive shopping, and help you find the ideal gift for the runner in your life!

1) Gifts for Her & Gifts for Him

No matter who you’re buying for, you’ll find something to suit them here. This category has a wide range of options guaranteed to improve every run, from classic choices like reflective winter jackets, GPS running watches and technical socks, to the more unusual gifts such as compression calf guards and foam rollers.

2) Inspire Me

For that one person who’s particularly difficult to buy for, our Inspire Me category houses products that are a little more unique.

Night Owls

If your loved one trains relentlessly throughout the cold, dark winter months then the Night Owls category is worth a look. Light them up like a Christmas tree and keep them safe, cosy and comfortable with our collection of reflective clothing, safety lights and cold-weather accessories. Here’s a few products to give you a taste of what’s on offer:

Ronhill Momentum Sirius Jacket (£70). Not only is this jacket wind resistant and water repellent, the 360 degree reflective print detailing makes this both a safe and stylish option!

Ronhill Run Beanie (£17) & Run Glove (£17). The ideal companions for any cold weather run!

Nathan StrobeLight Visibility (£7.99). Lightweight, slim and waterproof, this powerful strobelight is the ideal safety accessory for those dark winter days, and the perfect addition to any runner’s collection.

Gadget Junkies

Got someone tech-crazy on your hands? Then check out Gadget Junkies, stocked with everything from GPS running watches to head torches, headphones and LED safety lights.

Make sure you take a look at our latest addition, the Aftershokz Trekz Titanium Headphones (£109.95). These bone conductor headphones are worn next to the ear, not in it, so you can enjoy your music whilst still being fully aware of your surroundings. Wireless, comfortable and safer than regular earphones, this is the ultimate gift for any music-loving outdoor runner!

Gear of the Year

Fenix 5/5S (£499.99). The flagship GPS watches from Garmin, the Fenix 5 and the more petite 5S would surely be the highlight of any keen runner’s Christmas morning! Made for adventures, these top-of-the-range devices are packed with features, from advanced multi-sport performance analysis, to everyday activity tracking, navigational function and Bluetooth smart notifications. A training partner, smart watch and fitness tracker all in one, sleek package!

Hoka low-profile and max-cushion shoes (from £90). These maximal cushioned but super lightweight shoes have taken the running world by storm. Combining a rocker design with a blown EVA midsole, Hoka delivers a responsive, stable ride for runners of all abilities. Available in road, trail and all-terrain styles, there’s a model to suit everyone.

3) Stocking Fillers

It includes the SiS Gel Variety Pack (the event addict’s equivalent to a Cadbury selection box), Petzl Tikkina head torch (£20) and Fitness Mad massage ball (£4.99) used to target trouble spots and sore muscles.

4) Magical Christmas Offers

As always, we have some fantastic Christmas offers for you to take advantage of! Find a perfect pairing in Ronhill with 20% off when you spend over £50 on two or more items – the ideal opportunity to create a head to toe outfit, including accessories, for less!

If you’re in need of inspiration, how about matching the Stride Windspeed Jacket (£60) with the Stride Stretch Tight (£40) and Light Armband (£18) to get a complete and practical winter running look for £94.40 down from £118!

Christmas Offers

Our other offers include up to £30 off selected trail shoes (perfect for more technical winter terrain), up to £100 off Garmin Forerunners and 3 for 2 on performance running socks!

5) Gift Cards

If you are really not sure what to get, our gift cards and vouchers are always a hit!

6) Shoes

At Run4It, we have hundreds of pairs of shoes from 10 brands for the road, trails, treadmill and track. So shoes warrant a category of their own! Find everything from trail and road shoes to casual lifestyle shoes to keep your loved one bang on trend.

As running shoes are notoriously difficult to buy for someone else, given everyone’s feet and running style is different, we’ve created our Run4It +runlab Gift Box – designed to make buying running shoes as a gift easy! Simply buy a Gift Card worth £100 or more, and we’ll put it in a box for you alongside information on our 8 step +runlab shoe fitting process and a free pair of Feetures running socks. This gives them the full shoe fit experience, expert advice and the perfect pair of shoes!
