Christmas Gifts for your runner

December 5, 2012

Have you got a runner on your Christmas list?

We’ve got lots of great gift ideas.

How about some winter running gear to keep them warm and dry – tights, thermal tops, windproof jackets. Or … hats, gloves, socks and a thermal tube to keep your neck warm. For the techie runner we’ve got heart rate monitors, running watches and Yurbuds to listen to your music. And lots more.

Our staff would be happy to help you find something special – we’re all runners and can give you ideas based on our experience.

Stop in and have a look around.
