Wiggle’s top five gifts for runners
If you want to go big, there's little more invigorating than flash new tech. The Wahoo ELEMNT RIVAL is a powerful timepiece featuring tracking, navigation and safety features that will open up new worlds. Cutting-edge touchless transition functionality means, if you're competing in triathlon or duathlon, the watch automatically detects when you transition between swim, bike and run. It will even exchange information with your Wahoo bike computer so you always have the most accurate data to hand.
Guaranteed to bring some Christmas magic to your loved one's workouts through January and beyond, the HOVR Rise 2 promises a zero-gravity feel with a bouncy energy return that takes all the harshness out of impact. With a light, sock-like upper and a locked-down fit, they'll add a touch of joy to any winter training.
Brighten up those dark January days and make sure they're safe and warm with this brilliant winter running jacket from Asics. The bright yellow is unmissable in daylight, whilst 360-degree reflective decals will get them seen at night.
Whether the runner in your life is a seasoned trail aficionado or is just learning to love the mud, we're sure they'll appreciate the latest iteration of Salomon's premium running shoes. The Speedcross 5 features larger lugs than ever, designed to keep them upright so they can enjoy those unbeaten tracks with a spring in their stride.
Socks and undies are a bit of a Christmas cliché but any woman who runs knows the value of a good sports bra. Shock Absorber has worked with the world-leading experts at the University of Portsmouth to create the ultimate bra for comfort and support for runners.
And if it wasn't already the perfect gift, the seasonal colourway for 2020 is 'Winter blue/Cranberry splash' and you can't get more Christmassy than that.
