Calling all runners! We love to geek out on running gear and find products that help us move with greater ease. Read below to learn more about our favorite running-related gifts this holiday season.

Shoes

Brooks
Ghost 14

The Brooks Ghost line is much beloved for a reason. The new 14s are extra soft with 100% DNA LOFT cushioning. Our go-to sneakers for a smooth, pain-free run. Plus, the Ghost 14s are a carbon neutral shoe!

Watch

Garmin
Forerunner

The Garmin Forerunner is easy to use, simple to set up, and takes all the guesswork out of training. The GPS smartwatch helps you keep track of your distance, speed, pace, and even heart rate on walks and runs. We love the new Forerunner 55, but all Forerunner models are fantastic.

Nutrition

Clif
Bloks

Clif Bloks are portable bursts of energy to keep your body feeling great during a long run or workout. Only 33 calories, and super portable, we always carry a few of these on a run. Perfect stocking stuffer for the marathoner in your life!

Recovery Tool

TriggerPoint
Grid Foam Roller

Hurts so good! A foam roller is an essential part of any recovery routine. Post-workout, we pop a CBD gummy and roll out sore muscles. The TriggerPoint Grid Foam Roller is extremely durable and has a smaller size option for those looking to bring it on the go. Your body will thank you for committing to foam rolling post-workout, we promise.

T-Shirt

Oiselle
Long Sleeve

Lightweight, soft, and comfortable clothing is key to a happy workout. We love to support Oiselle--a brand by and for women athletes. Their long-sleeve T shirts are a great baselayer for winter runs, and come in a slew of fun colors.

Run Cap

Ciele
Hat

Looks cool, works even better. Ciele hats are super lightweight & fast-drying. They come with a million miles guarantee, and even have UPF+40 protection on the brim, front panel, and back panel. A great gift for the fashion-forward runner in your life.

Nutrition

Trail Butter

These Nut Butters are an easy & portable way to refuel your body quickly post workout. Made of real nuts, Jacobsen salt, and fruits, they come in a variety of flavors (we love Dark Chocolate & Coffee). A great stocking stuffer for runners and backpackers.

Magazine

Hi Hey Hello
Magazine

Long live the print magazine! Hi Hey Hello is a print magazine celebrating women’s outdoor culture. It features coverage of gear, food, social issues, experiences, and everything in between for the modern adventurer. It’s a great coffee table centerpiece to flip through and dream up your next adventure.

Headphones

Bose
Sport Earbuds

These wireless, bluetooth earbuds are sweat resistant, actually stay in your ear, and have fool-proof controls. You can take calls on the go, and listen to your favorite running playlist with crystal clear sound. Plus, they have a 5-hour battery life, perfect for long bike rides!

Jacket

Patagonia
Houdini Jacket

Here in the PNW, winter running necessitates having a solid packable layer for a variety of wet, cold or unseasonably warm weather conditions. We love Patagonia’s Houdini windbreaker for its minimal bulk and ultra lightweight feel. It’s made with 100% recycled nylon and is Fair Trade Certified™ sewn, plus as always, 1% of all Patagonia’s sales go to preservation and restoration of the natural environment!).

Hydration

MiiR x Mendi
Water Bottle

Our water bottle collaboration with MiiR is a 32oz. wide mouth bottle built for immediate rehydration. It is BPA free, Hardshell, and comes in 3 colors (blue, white, yellow). PLUS, 15% of each purchase goes back to Ecotrust.

CBD Recovery

Mendi
FS Gummies

Our most popular product for a reason. Our Full Spectrum Gummies are a great way to start recovering after a tough workout, and a tasty treat to look forward to. We tend to pop one or two right after a workout, and love to share with friends as well. A sure-fire gift for the runner in your life.
