The Wired Runner – Best Running Subscription Boxes in 2021

Shanna Powell

Running subscription boxes are a great idea, either as a gift for the runner in your life (and that includes yourself), or just as a way to send yourself a little running-related love every month or two. Many great subscriptions are available to land a stash of exciting, practical, running-related stuff right on your doorstep.

Any subscription box is fun to unpack, but if you’re passionate about running, then one that’s specific to the sport would be a fun way to stock up on useful stuff and try products you’d never usually buy for yourself.

If you’re looking for a way to treat yourself or a runner in your life, the best we’ve come across is The RunnerBox. It contains a great mix of nutritional items and accessories, gives you the chance to test brand new products on the market, and works out very affordably in the long run.

We’ve chosen 9 more that we feel are the greatest choices out there. Scroll through the rest of our list while you’re waiting for that first installment to arrive!

TheRunnerBox is one of our favorite subscription boxes. When you subscribe, you’re signing up to receive a box packed full of goodies every second month, and for a price you can’t beat.

They take great care to provide a varied list of stuff each month. You’ll get nutritional items, accessories, and even products aimed at recovery.

Some of the brands and products you’ll be familiar with, while others are the latest thing on the market for you to try out.

RunnerBox partners with different companies every few months so they can bring you the best of the best. You won’t get bored with their offerings, as they’re constantly searching for new, useful stuff to share with their subscribers.

Some examples of nutritional products you can expect include energy bars, rehydration packs, energy gels or chews, trail mix, smoothie mixes, protein powder, and other healthy snacks.

Accessories include things like lip balm, belts and waist packs, lubricant, socks, and other useful items.

You can choose to pay per box, for 6 months upfront, or for a year upfront. The only thing that we feel could offer more options is their shipping frequency. You only have one option, which is to receive a box every two months. We’d love the chance to grab one of these on a monthly basis!

As an added bonus, when you become a RunnerBox subscriber, you’ll get exclusive discounts on some of the products they feature if you want to stock up in between boxes.
