It is that time of year again when you need to get your Santa hat on and start stocking up with special treats for your nearest and dearest. Champagne? Lingerie? Chocolates? Hmm… not so much. What you REALLY need to be thinking about is running socks, cosy hats and maybe even a great head torch. Here are some of our top tips for her!

1. Lightweight jackets

The next three months are likely to be pretty chilly for most of us and the usual layers may just not be enough. A lightweight jacket will really help with the early morning and post-work cold.  Like these

2. A Race Entry

If you want to get creative, paid entry to one of those ultras that looks amazing but is a bit out of the ordinary price range could be just the thing. There are lots to choose from! 

3. Runderwear

Lace is nice but think of the chafing after mile 20! Runderwear do fantastic-looking, comfortable underwear. 

4. A box of energy bars

The runner’s version of a selection box! Try these.  

5. Woolly hat

But not just any woolly hat - a pink one with a furry pom pom … and it is a great stocking filler price

6. Head torch

This is a really vital piece of kit and can make a real difference to running throughout the winter darkness. Choose from these

7. Socks

Who doesn’t like pulling on a brand new pair of socks for a run? Pick a sock.

8. Hydration pack

Even though it’s winter, hydration is vital on those long runs and a pack gives you somewhere to store those extra layers too. Try this one

9. Running tights

It’s cold and wet and grim outside so a pair of decent running tights are always going to be welcome. Like these.  

10. Poles

Invaluable for slogging up the slopes and maintaining stability in snowy, icy conditions. A Christmas winner! Here's a good choice

Happy shopping and Happy Christmas!
