Marathon racers are a special breed. They live for the race, to push their bodies further than they ever imagined they could go and to accomplish a great thing such as running 26.2 miles! I would love to share with you some gift ideas for the marathon runner in your life who is special to you!
Gift Ideas for Marathon Racers
PR Race Bib and Medal Holder
Every racer is proud of their racing medals. They worked hard for them! This race bib and medal holder is a great and artistic way for them to display their hard-earned racing momentos!
Rhinestone 26.2 Boston Marathon Baseball Cap
Anyone, whether they’ve run the Boston Marathon or a different marathon altogether, would appreciate this rhinestone cap that displays the distance they’ve run right on the front!
Skullcandy Ink’d Bluetooth Earphones
Most people who exercise, in whatever shape or form, have a need for earphones to listen to music while they workout. When someone is running and using traditional earphones, their arms can get tangled up in the cords. Bluetooth earphones are the perfect solution to that, allowing them to enjoy their music without the inconvenience of cords being in their way!
LED Headlamp for night running
Hardcore runners might take to the streets at night. They need visibility for themselves as well as others, and this LED headlamp is perfectly suited to help with that!
“Muscles and Makeup” Cap
This “Muscles and Makeup” cap may not be specifically for marathon racers, but it fits them just as well. They have built up and trained their muscles, and they also look pretty and may like to wear makeup!
“Running is a mental sport and we’re all insane” Hoodie Sweatshirt
This sweatshirt is so awesome! Everyone needs sweatshirts to keep warm and this one is perfect for racers. Some people do see them as crazy, but it is fun to them!
“Slow runners make fast runners look good, you’re welcome!” tee shirt
I’ve seen this saying all over the place recently, and it’s so funny! This is perfect for the racer that feels they don’t run fast enough and adds humor to it!
Flipbelt running belt
Running belts allow runners to carry what they need while they go for runs or participate in races. They can store their phone, ID and other cards, money, and much more in these belts. The bonus of this Flipbelt here is that it is reflective so it can be the perfect accessory for night running as well.
Hydration Pack for runs
Most runners don’t like to carry water bottles with them if they can help it. A hydration pack to carry on their back and take a drink as needed works for many. That way they can carry their water and keep hydrated as they run!
iPhone armbands for those runners with iPhones is a great gift so they can carry their phones and listen to music as they run.
“To run or not to run?” Coffee Mug
This coffee mug is a great gift for your favorite marathon runner. It says, “To run or not to run? What a stupid question!” That’s how much runners love to run!
Knit Cap with Reflective Strip
For those runners dedicated enough to run in the cold and the dark, a knit cap with a reflective strip is the perfect gift to keep them running and safe at the same time!
Water Tumbler “She believed she could so she did”
Water is so important to anyone who exercises, and this “She believed she could, so she did” tumbler is a cute way for a runner to get their water in!
All-weather Reebok Running Gloves
These gloves are great for protecting your favorite marathon racer’s hands from the wind and water. They also have the added benefit of increased visibility with reflective material.
Fitbit Charge 2
Any racers who love Fitbits would love the new Fitbit Charge 2. It tracks steps, distance, and heart rate among other things. What a huge benefit to a marathon racer, especially one in training!
100-day Countdown to Marathon Tear Off Calendar
Chances are, they are eager for their marathon day to come. This 100-day countdown calendar helps them count down the days to their race!
“She believed she could so she did” Journal
The quote, “She believed she could, so she did” is so perfect for a marathon racer. This journal will allow them to write whatever they want to write, racing related or not!
“It’s not where you start, it’s where you finish” Wall Decal
This wall decal is shaped like a shoeprint and reminds your favorite marathon racer that finishing is what matters, not the beginning or whether or not they are fast enough. If they finish, or do their best, then they have won!
“Run your own race” Wall Art
This piece of wall art is also a good reminder, that they are running their own race and shouldn’t compare their progress to anyone else’s. It matters more how much they have accomplished and where they are going.
KT Tape Pro
KT Tape is a great tool for those who need extra support on a joint or part of their body that needs the help. It can help with a bad knee, muscles or tendons, and other joints as well. Runners deal with pain and injuries sometimes that aren’t bad enough to keep them from running but are enough that they need some extra support, and this tape is a big help with that!
The marathon racer in your life will appreciate any one of these gifts. They always love running tools and gifts that encourage them or help them be a better runner!
