Date Ideas For Runners

6 Date Ideas Runners Will Love

Are you dating a runner? Make their heart beat a little faster this Valentine's Day with these supersimple but incredibly thoughtful date ideas.

Go For a Run Together

Okay, so this one is pretty obvious, but going on a run together will mean a lot to your valentine, especially if you're not a runner yourself. Showing interest in their favorite activity and seeing what it's like firsthand will create a special bond between you and your date. Are you both runners? Try a new trail or drive out to a track you've never been to for an adventurous take on your usual routine.

Go For a Walk Together

Is Valentine's Day your rest day? Make it an active rest day with a low-intensity walk. Go for a clichéd long walk on the beach or through the park, maybe with a juice or cup of coffee in hand, and spend some time talking.

Find an Italian Restaurant and Carb Load

Especially if they're in training for a race, your runner will appreciate the carb loading and the romantic, traditional atmosphere of a nice Italian restaurant. Plus, it might give them that rare opportunity to swap the shorts and sneakers for something a little dressier. If a cozy night in is more your style, try these healthy versions of classic Italian fare.

Heat Up the Hot Tub

Heat things up on your Valentine's Day date while soaking sore, tired muscles in a jacuzzi, champagne optional. Everyone wins.

Get Couples Massages

A romantic and thoughtful couples massage is a perfect date for a runner who needs some muscular TLC and maybe a little physical therapy. Help your valentine feel their best for their next run or race by setting an appointment at a spa, or giving them a massage at home.

Take a Yoga Class

It's always a good idea for a runner to cross-train to break up the typical schedule, and the stretching will be good for stiff IT bands and hamstrings. You'll both leave class feeling relaxed and refreshed.
