Five Father's Day Gifts

My wife and I just recently had our second child, and so Father’s Day seems both more relevant, yet also harder to remember, what with all the craziness that comes with having a newborn.

With that in mind, Finishers Club took the time to gather a list of five great gifts for Dads who run that you can most likely have delivered – or pick up – before Father’s Day this Sunday, June 18th. And all for under $30. Enjoy!

Finishers Club may collect a referral commission on the purchase of some items here. We need to buy granola bars, too!
  1. What I Talk About When I Talk about Running

What I talk About When I Talk About Running

Murakami’s classic centers on his training for the 2010 New York City Marathon, but he focuses his considerable talents on musing about the art, science, and rhythm of running.

2. REI Co-Op Running Tee – $19.50, REI

REI Tee Shirt

This comfy, moisture-wicking running shirt is almost definitely in stock at your local REI. It has a solid 4/5 stars, and is backed by REI’s legendary 100% Satisfaction guarantee. Dad will love it. Plus, who doesn’t love the color name “blueberry heather?”

3. CLIF Bar Peanut Butter Banana with Dark Chocolate – $5.99, Target

Peanut Butter Banana CLIF Bar

Say it with chocolate. Dark chocolate. Dark chocolate banana peanut butter CLIF Bars. These bold bars are the newest release from CLIF, and are bound to give dad the boost he needs on those weekend runs.

4. CamelBak Quick Grip Chill Handheld Water Bottle – $28, REI

Camelbak Water Bottle Review

It’s a hot one out there. But you don’t always need a full hydration pack to get you through a five or ten mile run. That’s where this 28-oz Camelbak shines — light enough for longish runs, but substantial enough to keep you fueled. And a pocket that’s ideal for keys, credit cards, or smaller phones.

5. Tifosi Jet FC – $28, REI

Tifosi Jet Review

Tifosi is a well-respected optics brand, and the Jet FCs are on a hefty discount – down to a few bucks under $30. C’mon, you want Dad to look cool while he’s out there, right? 

Splurge Option – Thule Urban Glide

We couldn’t resist putting in one splurge item here. Behold the Thule Urban Glide, a fantastic, versatile jogging stroller that’ll help Dad stay fit and fatherly by taking the little one – or little ones – along with him on his runs.
