    Great Last Minute Stocking Stuffers


    Christmas is a great time for runners to piece together an outfit that hasn’t been working for them. Below is a good list of last minute “stocking stuffers” that a runner on your shopping list might enjoy. From top to bottom all of these items should be able to fit in a stocking. If you’re like me, while you’re out you’ll get something for yourself!


    Gu’s and Chews $2.00-500 (Every runner could use a few of these.)

    Running Skull Cap $20 (Breathable toque that’s light on most days and comfortable even in the summer.)

    Merino Wool Toque $20-30 (Great for those really cold days, I’ll put it over my Skull Cap.)

    Breathable Sunglasses $50-300 (Helpful to stop your breath from fogging them up on really cold days!)

    Balaclava $10-35 (Covers your kneck and face when it’s freezing out, so you can breathe better and stay warmer.)

    Head Lamp $5-15 (It gets darker faster in the winter, this will light up your route.)

    Base Layer $20-80 (Acts like an extra layer of skin so no cold can get in.)



    Merino wool Layer $50-80 (Lasts a long time, and keeps you extra warm.)

    Flashing Light $2-15 (It’s always better to be seen out there, I’ll like clip on lights. They can clip to most pieces of clothing, even toques!)

    Winter Running Underwear $15-40 (The Wind cover on these makes for a big difference in cold weather, whether you’re male/female)

    Base Pants Layer $40-100 (like long johns, but breathable. These make a massive difference. I’ve noticed my butt stays a lot warmer!)

    Smart Wool Socks! $10-25 (Nothing better than a good warm pair of socks for the winter.)

    Micro Spikes $50-60 (to wear when it’s icy, but not yet snowshoe weather. Great for trail running!)

    These are a few items that should fit in a stocking, and should be staples for any winter runner!


    Here’s to you and a Happy Holiday, enjoy your family!
