Holiday Gift Guide / Boston Qualifer

Marathoners put in a lot of miles which means they need more than one pair of training shoes. Sneak a peek at their feet and grab an extra pair of what they wear.

Chasing a marathon PR requires fuel, before, during, and after the big race! Options? We’ve got lots. Like, lots and lots.

From muscle massagers and rollers to cushy slides, anything to help speed up recovery is bound to be loved by those marathon finishers already thinking about their next goal.

Good, quality socks are needed to keep feet dry, cool, and blister-free mile after mile. Make a marathoner's feet happy, and they’ll be happy too!

Soft and wicking tees are great for training runs, race days, and even a post-run brunch! You can’t go wrong giving the gift of versatility.
