The perfect parkunner gift guide


There aren’t many parkruns left until Christmas Day!


We’ve put together the perfect parkrunner gift guide to help you get stuck into your Christmas shopping.


Best of all, profit from all items below comes back to parkrun, helping to keep it free, for everyone, forever.




1. The perfect accessories


The FTG beanie or Uditore socks from our friends at CONTRA make a great stocking idea for a fellow parkrunner, or for something extra special, check out their new winter collection, from tights to base layers and more cold weather essentials.


All CONTRA products are ethically produced and available in 10 sizes for men and women. 


You can find a range of cold weather clothing and accessories from our friends at CONTRA here.




2. No more forgotten barcodes

Treat that someone special to a parkrun flatband – perfect for displaying their love of parkrun whilst storing their parkrun barcode – so they can never forget it again!


Don’t know their parkrun details? Don’t worry – you can shop one of our barcode gift cards today.

3. Represent Apricot


The parkrun apricot is our very own retail range and it has been extended just in time for Christmas!
