Gift Ideas: Buying for the Runner in Your Life

What makes for a well thought out, “perfect” gift? There are many things that contribute to giving a gift that is appreciated by the recipient. If you are thinking of giving a runner in your life a gift, here is a little direction from Running on the Wall as to what might be well received, and particularly held dear to a runner’s heart.


When someone participates in a race, they are ‘pinned’ with a race bib to wear during the race. The number on the bib indicates the details about their person, (name, age, gender, height, etc.) specific only to their assigned number. These bibs are ‘keepers’, and are often of sentimental significance that remind people of the challenges they overcame to run in that race. Sadly, some store away their bibs, and they end up in a state of decay. A great idea for a runner that has participated in a race however, is a race bibs rack that can proudly display these types of bibs – so runners can see them each day, keep them in great good condition, and celebrate their successes!

Medals are also quite often distributed to all participants in a race. Giving a running medal holder as a gift is also a way to show that you want them to be able to show off their accomplishments, and be motivated to keep participating in the sport they love!
