Christmas gifts for runners

Where to find the clothes, equipment and accessories that will make the perfect Christmas gift for a runner.

If you’re after a gift for a runner or jogger, the good news is that you have lots of choice, from stylish activewear to high-tech training accessories.

How do I choose a Christmas gift for a runner?

If you’re not sure exactly what you would like to buy, there are a few factors to consider.

Firstly, how serious they are about training will help you to figure out what to look for. For casual runners, think about fashion as well as function. If they’re just starting out, consider an activity tracker to keep them motivated. If they are serious, technical accessories such as compression gear, trail shoes, sunglasses and headgear will really make a difference to their comfort and performance.

Also, think about climate. Here in Australia, we don’t really have the need for sub-zero training gear, but winter-appropriate running apparel could be just what runners in Melbourne need to keep active during the colder months. Similarly, runners in Queensland and Sydney will appreciate lightweight and quick-drying fabrics to stave off waterlog during downpours.
