SHOKZ OpenRun Pro - Open-Ear Bluetooth Bone Conduction Sport Headphones - Sweat Resistant Wireless Earphones for Workouts and Running with Premium Deep Base - Built-in Mic, with Hair Band

Shokz OpenRun Pro Headphones

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!

Marathon Map and Display Frame

I love this frame as a gift for a marathon runner that’s finished a big race recently. Customize it with the race’s location, route, and their time. Then add a celebratory photo.

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.

Marathon Race Log Book

Marathon races can use this gift to track all their races, including stats and other information. I like that it also has room for photos and keepsakes making it both a nice way to log records and hold onto memories too.

CamelBak Octane Dart 50oz Hydration Pack, Black/Atomic Blue

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!

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!

Reebok All-Weather Running Gloves - S

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.

GPS Running Watch

Any racers who love fitness trackers or smart watches would love the Forerunner GPS running watch from Garmin. It tracks steps, distance, and heart rate among other things. What a huge benefit to a marathon racer, especially one in training!

She Believed She Could So She Did: Pink Notebook (Composition Book Journal) (8.5 x 11 Large)

“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!

Reasons to Run Print

This piece of wall art is also a good reminder, that they are running their own race and shouldn’t compare their progress or goals to anyone else’s. It matters more how much they have accomplished and where they are going.

KT Tape, Pro Synthetic Kinesiology Athletic Tape, 20 Count, 10” Precut Strips, Jet Black

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!

This is a simple gift for marathon racers that can easily hold so much significance, especially for the right person. These shoe lace tags can be added to any lace up shoes to inspire a runner or celebrate an accomplishment.

It comes personalized with any message so put your unique touch on it for a truly one of a kind running gift.

The marathon racer in your life will appreciate any one of these gift ideas. They always love running tools and gifts that encourage them or help them be a better runner!
