Let’s face it, many runners up and down the country will be wishing for some sparkly new running gear on Christmas morning!
Whether it’s essential running items for replacing old, worn-out ones, or something a bit different – we’ve put together a list of our most popular running accessories that would be perfect stocking fillers!
But if you’re looking for something a little bit special; something that any runner would be truly grateful for – we’ve got you covered!
Five festive stocking fillers for runners
The good news is that if you know someone who’s immersed in the sport of running, there are many gifts that will delight them. With items for improving running comfort, for boosting recovery or for feeding running knowledge, why not consider the following:
Sidas technical running socks
firm favourite of Team-GB, these thin, light and technical mid-high socks giving ideal support for the road or trail.
Profeet’s ambassador, ultrarunner Pierre Meslet said:
“I tested the new performance socks by Sidas over the last couple of months and I will race the Valencia marathon with these. They’re absolutely amazing!”
*Sidas Cedar Wood Dryer Bags are also a great stocking filler – for keeping running shoes dry and odour-free!
Therm-ic active gloves
These light and breathable gloves cleverly wick away sweat to keep you dry. Also, with a special thumb and index finger coating, you can securely use your phone. Or, for anyone who suffers from cold hands, consider a pack of Therm-ic pocket warmers.
Spikey massage balls
With stretching and recovery an essential part of any runner’s routine, trigger point massage balls are a convenient way of relieving muscle soreness. Spikey balls can pinpoint pressure for targeted pain relief.

This essential runner’s guide, written by Profeet ambassador and ultra-endurance running legend Robbie Britton, is a perfect addition to any running enthusiast’s bookshelf!
You can’t go wrong with a pair of OOFOS sandals. With revolutionary technology allowing feet to sink in comfort, these stylish sandals can help runners with joint and muscle recovery.
Profeet’s run and footwear technician Tom said:
“At Endure 24 this year, everyone who tried on the OOFOS sandals was so impressed they bought a pair! It has a rockered sole and arch support – perfect for after long runs, or for just putting out the bins!”
The ultimate runner’s Christmas gift…
For something a bit more special, a gift that any runner would truly appreciate is one that can help improve their running performance.
Of course, we have a wide range of approved running footwear, with different widths and styles to suit any runner. But choosing running footwear for someone else, that might not be right for them, can increase their risk of injury.
Instead of taking a chance, why not treat them to a comprehensive running analysis? The runner’s gift that keeps on giving…
Make them feel like a ‘pro’
A sports assessment in our Running Lab isn’t just for ‘elite’ runners – but any runner may come away feeling like it. A comprehensive running assessment with a Profeet run technician can provide essential information for anyone who takes their sport seriously, equipping them with knowledge about their specific running movement and foot function.
In a 3D Run Pro Assessment they can try out different footwear and receive a full running performance report. We can organise custom-moulded insoles that fit perfectly to appropriate footwear for achieving running goals, and we can even offer strength and conditioning advice.
Get in touch to book a running assessment for the runner in your life, and let us help you choose the best plan for them. Or, if you prefer, we have a range of gift vouchers that you can present them with at Christmas time, so they can schedule their own visit.
