Coupons for Runners
Giving gifts to runners can be a bit tricky, so we've gone ahead and created a bunch of coupons that you can give as gifts to runners in your life!
These things make pretty good birthday/holiday/anniversary/post-race celebration/just because gifts and we want you to be able to use them, so we've made them available for download.
There's a link at the bottom of this page where you can download the high resolution files, then print them off yourself and give them to runners that you know.
If you do print them let us know on instagram @runguides
Now, on to the coupons....
Free Blocking Services
Running in the city can be hard with so many hazards to dodge! Give this to a friend and they'll be obliged to throw out 57 "on your lefts!" while you keep it on cruise control behind them!
One Time Early Morning Run Session
Gift this to your weird friends that like to run at 5am. It will touch their heart to watch you slam 3 litres of coffee then join them for a sunrise session!
One Session of Taper Tantrum Counselling
Have a friend gearing up for a major race in the near future? Present this coupon to them! They will happliy redeem it two days before their race when they are convinced that the weird feeling in their left leg is an indicator that they have lost 70% of their fitness in the last three rest days.
One Time Registration Companion
The only thing better than running a race that you're slighty not ready for is convincing other friends to come do it with you! The next time you're out for drinks with one of your running buddies, present them with this coupon, then pull up next month's race calendar!
One Hour of Captivated Listening
The perfect gift for any runner that has just finished a big race, or massive training week. Heck, they may even want to cash this one in after an especially epic run so that you can Stravsturbate with them for an hour.
Free Online Validation
Don't you hate it when you spend all week crushing runs and NO ONE NOTICES?!?! Redeeming this coupon will make sure that you end up with not only the validation that you need, but the validation that you deserve!
Free Race Photos
The perfect gift to give to anyone sick of paying $90 to remove the watermarks on the epic photo of them looking down/stopping their watch as they step over the finish line.
Full Day of Ultra Babysitting
Want to test drive what it's like to have a child? Give one of your friends this coupon and sign up to pace them at an ultra! You'll have a front row seat into their transformation from fully functioning adult into an overtired 3 year old that keeps almost falling over, and won't eat their damn applesauce.
Free Ego Boost
The coupon that no runner admits that they want, but every runner secretly wishes that they had!
Personal Aid Station
If you ever want to gain the love, respect, admiration of a runner (or simply want them to feel indebted to you forever) meet them in the middle of a long run with a waterbottle and some snacks. Or just give them this coupon and watch them tear up knowing that they won't have to carry anything with them for once.
Gear Check Porter
Starting chutes; the part of the race where runners nervously stand around making weird small talk with strangers, and second guess their race strategy/nutrition plans before wildely hurling any outer extra layers into the spectator void. Gifting this coupon will help your runner keep that $120 technical long sleeve for at least one more weekend.
