Is the runner in your life a triathlete? You should definitely give them this thing.

What is it? We don’t know and they won’t know either. But they’ll love it.

Does the runner you love already have everything? We know that finding them something special can seem impossible. But the answer is at hand. Buy them everything! But in yellow!

Want to add a Christmas touch to your runner’s next marathon? Doing so is easy with our special do-it-yourself-at-home solution. All you need is a white singlet, a bucket of sweat, and a late night raid to steal their nipple tape. Because everyone knows: red says Christmas!

Do you really, really love a runner? Prove it, by buying them the big one. The hottest runners’ item this year is the new shoe from Nike, which guarantees that you will run 4% faster and win your personal match race at the Night of Miles. The shoes are not presently available, but don’t let that stop you! Buy your runner the right to make an offer to register a bid to enter an auction to purchase a future edition of the Nike Vaporfly, which they can then swap on EBay, for a fee, for a pair in the correct size!

Cost? How can you place a value on a guaranteed PB? Let’s say $1000.

Where to buy? In person, from Stephen or Simon
