20 Best Christmas Gifts for Trail & Ultra Runners (2018)


Yes! It’s that time of year again where I dress as an elf and recommend my top 20 Christmas presents for trail and ultra runners.

Whether it’s the latest high tech GPS watch, a comfy winter running top, a fun 2019 calendar or a pair of lightweight poles, there will be something in here to put on your list to Santa. (Links below)

Which one of these will you put on your Christmas list? Send this film to all your relatives so they get you a great gift this year!

Transparency: I’m not paid by any of these brands to mention these products, they are all what I think are truly awesome Christmas presents. The affiliate links below are how I make a tiny amount of money to support this channel. Clicking on these gives me a very small percentage of the sale at no cost to you, so please click on these first before you buy anything on Amazon (it works even if you’re not buying this running gear! Cool isn’t it!) Thank you, Claire
