2. 33Shake Race Weekend Bundle

£30.00. We’re big fans of 33Shake. They’re all about natural, clean, tasty nutrition and they produce some of the best endurance fuel on the market. Their race weekend bundle makes a great gift.

3. inov-8 running arm sleeve

£18.00. Arm warmers don’t get enough credit, but we swear by them. We all start a run a bit nippy and our arms are susceptible to the cold. As we warm up, the ability to shed our sleeves is incredibly handy.

£23.99. A foam roller, two massage balls and a resistance band. One tidy package to keep his body functioning through all those run miles.

£11.75. Ultra runners’ feet and Injinji socks are a match made in heaven. They allow your toes to splay and reduce blisters between the toes.
