Runnerbox - a Father's Day Gift (and mini-review)

I just needed to share a great Father's Day gift I received. My wife and daughter surprised me with a Runnerbox.

What is a Runnerbox? It's a small box full of healthy awesomeness. For a more well-rounded description, let's look at theirs direct from their site:
RunnerBox is a subscription based box full of products and discounts which have been hand-picked to enhance your active lifestyle. Runnerbox has everything from gels, chews, protein shakes/supplements, nutrition bars, energy boosters, healthy snacks, personal care, and other running accessories! Many products will be brand new to the market while others will be tried and true favorites. With so many new products claiming to be the next best thing – leave the trials and testing to us – we’ll search out the finest and send them right to your doorstep!

The small little box I got was packed full of awesome products. There was a variety of healthy snacks, energy items and helpful little products. Care to see for yourself?
Runnerbox: the Goods

First, there are the snacks. I have dried cherries, a nut, seed & dried fruit mix, key lime granola, honey almond protein cookie bites, a fruit & no-nut bar and a 'Lip Smackingly Good' Smooch pouch. Second were the more energy / running items, including Honey Stinger organic energy chews, a Sport Beans quick energy as well as Sport Beans protein recovery crisps, Fluid Performance sports drinks mix and a new sample of nuun flavor to try. Lastly, there were too other helpful little products, first are blister shield powder and and fun multifunctional 'seemless wear', that looks like a nice sweat wicking material that can be worn all sorts of ways: headband, scarf, wristband...

Overall, I can simply review Runnerbox as amazing. There's so much packed in there. So much to try. I can't wait to try some of the snacks. I really need more healthy alternatives, so this will be a great way to check them out. Having the other energy options to check out will be nice too. What I have works for me, but always good to branch out. One I definitely want to try are Sport Beans. One of my runner friends uses them, so I'm interested to see how they are.

They offer a variety of options in how to get them, ranging from a one time gift box, race survival kit, a bimonthly year long subscription or even a perpetual subscription. They also have a gluten free option. You get whatever the monthly mix is, with different things to try each time. Check out their shop for all the choices.

All in all, Runnerbox was a fantastic gift. Get one for any runner in your life. They even have a Cyclebox and Tribox.


  1. This is a great option for a gift. Your wife and daughter did good. I may use this idea next year for my mom or dad!
    Glad to see that your Bondi band arrived safely! I hope you like it.

    1. Yeah. It was a nice unexpected item.

      I was so happy to get it. I just haven't gotten out to run with it yet. Excited to because it feels like it will likely be just what I was looking for to keep the sweat off my face without making my head hotter.
