Bibrave Product Review: The Runner Box

Disclaimer: I received A Runner Box to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

First product of the year for bibrave before a string of races!!! I had the opportunity to test Runner Box, an online service that caters to runners, cyclists and triathletes. I’ve tried monthly/quartly box services before for other things and even had an athlete related monthly box sent me as a gift in the past, but this is my first Runner Box.


It arrived on my snowy front door step (thanks Spokane. I’m feeling like i brought some of Cleveland with me) and I couldn’t wait to see what was in it. You get a whole lot of stuff for such a small Box! 


For particular box, I got a set of Louvo gloves, mac and cheese, some protein drink supplements, a super food bar and some other fun goodies. I haven’t had a chance to try everything yet, but here are my thoughts. Love the Louvo gloves. I still get use of my fingers (your fingers are exposed and the hands are covered,). I’m in Vancouver for the weekend and left them at brunch by mistake. I went back to find them for a reason! The REDD super food bar was a good grab and go thing for work. I also tried the Runa energy drink, but it was flat 😕. I think it had been left in the cold too long and had a tiny hole in it which defeated its purpose.

Here’s how Runner Box works:

  1. Pick your Box. It can be for you, a friend, family member, whomever
  2. Make a decision on how many boxes you want sent. Standard, 6 months or a year
  3. Remember that it’s a BIMONTHLY subscription (read it gets delivered every 2 months)
  4. Order and sit back. Runner Box does the rest!

Cost: from $20/Box

What you get: researched products based off what you of Box you ordered

The pros:

  • Good amount of stuff per Box (I’m still working though mine!)
  • Reasonably priced
  • Good subscription options
  • Can do a Tri or Cycling Box!

Here’s where I waver a little bit and something to think about. I get weird when it comes to food/supplements/beverages and running. When boxes include it (I’ve had other boxes that also give gels, etc), I never know what to think because I’m so picky as it is. I also know people with dietary restrictions where they couldn’t have what was sent anyway. I also am picky and set in my ways with what I do for runs. I’d rather have something that was , more stuff than food, etc but that’s just me.

Overall though, a good product that does its research. If you’re looking for a gift for your athlete, this is something to look into. If you need a Valentines Day gift, they’re doing a limited time Valentine’s themed box!
