Impressions: A RunnerBox subscription is like getting a surprise care package every other month, full of fun things to try. My sample box was overflowing (literally – one item came packaged securely in the mailer, but outside the official box) with 14 more-or-less running-related items, ranging from energy bars to a lens cleaner to an energy drink to supplements to skin care products to a sample from an adult coloring book for runners.
I’m still trying things out, but so far I’ve eaten the Honey Stinger waffle bar after the Shamrock Run, gobbled up the Sinfully Thin Ready To Eat Popcorn while watching a movie, enjoyed the nicely textured and well-balanced cranberry/white chocolate Santa Barbara Bar before a training run, and drank the grapefruit/ginger Formula O2 energy drink after the ‘Couve Clover Run. I also tried the Munk Pack squeezable oatmeal (yes, you read that right!), the Evo Hemp bar, and the Vitafive gummy vitamins. A few other interesting items remain to be sampled.
As you can see, each RunnerBox includes a great variety of samples, and the company includes a card with detailed descriptions of each item, so you know what you’re getting into. Most products come with a discount code if you are inspired to order more online. The great thing about RunnerBox is the variety and that there’s only a small amount of each product: If you love something, you can order more at a discount with your code; but if it’s not your thing, you’re not stuck with a crate of something you’re not going to use. With The RunnerBox, you’ll find yourself checking your mail every two months, wondering, like a kid at Christmas, what exciting new surprises are hiding inside that cardboard carton.
