Runner Crate

May 25, 2016

The subscription box trend is strong these days and I was excited to stumble across a box full of goodies just for runners. The thing that makes subscription boxes great is that it gives you a chance to sample new products that you might not normally try.

Runner Crate delivers a box chock full of fitness supplements, apparel, workout plans, recipes and other gear monthly. You have the option to purchase month-to-month ($35US), 3 months ($34US), 6 months ($32.33US), or 12 months ($30US). I wasn’t sure what to expect from the May box, but was pleasantly surprised with such a small box stuffed with some cool stuff!


  • Running Dream Running Belt  – which is perfect because I lent my belt to a friend to test out and haven’t got it back yet.
  • Go Raw Pumpkin Seed Bar
  • Earnest Eats Detofixfying Hot Cereal
  • Epic Bar Chicken Sriracha – This was likely the strangest protein bar I’ve ever had. It was more like a soft jerky.
  • Wild Friends Chocolate Almond Butter – yum yum YUM!
  • Justin’s Chocolate Hazlenut Butter w/Pretzels – Liam and I have a box of these in the pantry and love them!
  • Protings Zesty Nachos
  • May the 4th light up race bling – the bling is their take on medals. There is a running challenge included with the box to complete to ‘earn’ your bling. It’s a great idea to shake up your runs if you’re feeling in running rut.

There also the chance to win the golden ticket, included in one box a month. Last month’s golden ticket recipient received a pair of running shoes!

The only downfall to Runner Crate is that it’s an American company which means dealing with our crappy exchange and a little higher shipping cost. Regardless, I’m really pleased with the items in this box and would definitely consider gifting a subscription to a friend or loved one who’s into running (and snacks!).

    Now this is my kind of subscription box! I would LOVE to subscribe, but yeah, with the exchange and such, I can’t.

    This would be an awesome gift for someone too!

    Damn american dollar. I’ve never actually tried a subscription box before (I’m too cheap). This one looks good though! If you lived in the states…or wanted a unique gift for a friend! How was that hot cereal – I’ve never tried dragon fruit before.

      I hear you on the cheap factor. I have only bought a subscription box for Liam with his birthday money, the rest of been blog reviews!

      I didn’t actually try the hot cereal yet, but I will let you know when I do. It’s an interesting concept!
