Gifts For Runners

Buying Christmas gifts for runners isn't as tricky as you'd think. Yes, we can be a particular bunch sometimes. But we're also out so often, working up a sweat and getting covered head to toe in mud, that we always need a bit more kit - if only to save us from sticking a wash on every other day! Maybe we need a head torch to keep us running through the dark winter nights, or some ultralight camping kit for a mountain marathon in the new year. We've picked out some of our favourite gifts for runners, just don't forget to catch the last Alpkitmas post!
