The Garmin Forerunner 305

A run down of the top ten gifts for those who love running – whether for an end of year birthday or for Christmas presents.

  1. Garmin GPS System – check times, distances, elevation and even heart rate using an objective and scientific measure.
  2. Petzl Head Lamps – join in the night-running craze popularised by the Deer Stalker Run by Rat Race and the Stockholm midnight marathon.
  3. Hilly Hat – stylish Winter running accessory for men or women – an ideal stocking filler.
  4. Feet in the Clouds – the ultimate story of fell running by Richard Askwith.
  5. The Ghost Runner: The Tragedy of the Man They Couldn’t Stop – by Bill Jones, tells the story of a mystery athlete who gatecrashed top races and claimed long-distance running world records which were inevitably invalidated by the top sporting bodies because the runner had been paid £17 expenses for boxing as a youngster.
  6. From Last to First: A long-distance runner’s journey from failure to success by Charlie Spedding
  7. Training Diary – keeps tabs on just how far you actually ran and allows you to look back at your comments on favourite races and top times.
  8. Salomon Long Sleeved Top – good for casual wear as well as out on a training run.
  9. Skins – compression technology clothing can double up as a thin base layer during Winter.
  10. Cushioned Socks – padded ultra-soft running socks are available from several brands. So comfortable, you’ll never go back!
