With that in mind, and no time to waste, we’ve got a helpful list of gift ideas for you to spoil the runner who has everything:

Garmin Forerunner 35. In my opinion, this is the best base model GPS watch on the market. Now with a built-in heart rate monitor, it has everything the modern runner needs to get the most out of training. Available in a range of colours, and able to be connected to your phone via bluetooth to upload data and receive notifications, this truly is a wonderful gift of a gadget. Click here.
ResQLink Personal Locator Beacon. If the runner you’re thinking of spends most of their time training in the bush, I suggest this is a must. A quality personal locator beacon is an essential investment for the committed trail runner. Buoyant and GPS-enabled, the ResQLink will give someone their best hope for help in a dire situation.

Mountain Safety Pocket Survival Bag. The $7 item that will save a life. This is the one essential item that a trail runner – no matter what level – should always carry. It’s the ideal little stocking filler. Click here.
Marmot PreCip - Seam Sealed Jacket. It moves well, breathes well and keeps the wet out. An essential item for anyone training in the bush. As a bonus, it’ll pass any standard required for events where a seam sealed jacket with a hood is necessary for entry. Click here.
Vivobarefoot Shoes. There’s 168 hours in a week. If you sleep for 58 hours, and exercise for 10 hours, that leaves 100 hours for life. I suggest that what you wear on your feet for the 100 hours of life is pretty important in the development of a strong, healthy body. My suggestion is that you look for a shoe for work and life that is flat, flexible, shaped like a foot, and close to the ground.
