gift guide for runners

Runners are a rare breed. They feed on the high that comes from pain and suffering, whether that’s under the lights on the track or rising with the sun for a marathon. No matter the goal, there is always something that keeps them going to that next PR. The beauty of running is that not much is needed to get started, but once things get more serious, there are a ton of gear options to get an edge, whether it is a humble running cap, a recovery tool or a new pair of shoes.

That's where you come in. You're here because you know someone who loves to pound the pavement or hit the trail day in and day out. The best gifts for runners are the ones that help them push just beyond what they think their body and mind can handle. These gifts below are sure to help your runner go longer, faster and harder whether they’re training for a mile or 26.2.
