There are so many gifts that runners might love but Alyssa Lombardi, a certified running coach, has one main shopping tip: usefulness. “If you’re buying a gift for a runner, think about what they may use or need.” She suggests clothes, shoes, gadgets, or recovery and cross-training equipment. Whether the runner in your life is a marathoner, casual jogger, speed-walking enthusiast, or treadmill purist, they’ll be extra thankful for these thoughtful and functional running gifts.
Not to mention, these gifts may even help them prevent injury, stay happy and healthy, and cut a few seconds off their PR time! Read on to see 50 of the best holiday gifts runners will *actually* use and love in 2022.
