Last updated: 15-Nov-18

By James Eacott

Is your partner / husband / boyfriend / lunatic neighbour nuts about trail and ultra running? Show your love or mild appreciation for him and his exploits with a gift this Christmas. Below we’ve detailed 10 Perfect Christmas Gifts for a trail or ultra runner:

1. Running Beyond

By Ian Corless. An inspiring coffee-table-book with incredible visuals, immersive race commentary and events details penned by perhaps the most influential figure in Ultra and Trail Running. It’s a bargain. Read our review and you can purchase it from Amazon.

2. Stryd Power Meter

For the data driven gadget lover who has everything and just loves crunching numbers. Find it here.

3. A Hyperice Vyper Vibrating Foam Roller

Yep, the classic torture device just got even more painful. German engineered, adding vibration to foam rolling “takes the whole experience to a new level”! 

4. Socks!

We know, it’s not the most exciting gift, but someone will be buying you socks this Christmas, so make sure they get you a decent pair for trail running. And let’s be honest, it’s about time you replaced those holey numbers. We recommend these.

5. Sony Headphones

A bargain at just £15, these headphones clip around the ear, provide good sound quality and are sweat and shower-resistant. 

6. Customised OS Map

Create a map of your local area. We love these because we find it’s all too easy to hit the same trails repeatedly, and yet there’s often so much more to explore right on your doorstep. Find them here.

7. A proper winter running jacket

It is December, after all. Treat your beloved with something you know he’ll stay warm, dry and comfortable in while he hits the trails this winter (the crazy fool). Here's what we think.

8. Epsom Bath Salts

This is great stuff, we can vouch for it. If you’re sick and tired of your significant other being a stuff, waste of space as he hobbles around the house for days after his weekly long run, chuck a load of this in a bath he’ll recover much quicker while he soaks. 

9. Gore X-Run Ultra Shirt LS

Ultra lightweight, cool and breathable. This is a great base layer to keep your man warm as he indulges in his favourite hobby. Find it here.


10. Headtorch
