The Fairweather Runner

Got a fairweather outdoor enthusiast on your list? Or maybe someone who has signed up for their first race this coming spring. Here are the essentials to get them started.

A nice windshell will keep your runner protected from most elements, while a nice technical tee will wick away sweat, and keep them warm without overheating. A lightweight pant will do the same! Look for a stable shoe with light support and good cushioning.

The Dedicated Runner

These runners are dedicated to the sport and are going to head out in most types of weather and at any time of day. They need to be both visible and maybe a little stylish. Hey, we want to look good when we go for that post-run latte!

A water repellent jacket with built in reflective elements, means your loved one will stay protected from both weather and vehicles. A slightly more sophisticated technical shirt will keep them that much more comfortable, and also have a bit more of a refined fit. When it comes to pants, think warmth, and for shoes, think lightweight.

The Obsessed Runner

Neither snow nor rain nor freezing temperature nor gloom of night stays these runners from the swift completion of their workouts! They need to be prepared for it all!

Breathable waterproof shells will win the day, as well as warm, insulating base layers. Shoes with grippy outsoles and waterproof uppers are a must to keep these crazy runners in tip top form.
