12 Types of Runners You See In the Spring

April 16, 2015 2 min read

The sub-zero temps of winter are finally behind us, and runners know this means one thing: You can ditch the treadmill and get outdoors again (!!!). And once you lace up, you realize you’re not the only one who had that idea—the streets, trails, and paths are packed with runners again. Seeing so many of us out there reminds us that running really is an “everyman” sport: People of all shapes and ages can be found pounding the pavement. But no matter where you are, you're sure to see these 12 running types.

The Barefoot Runner

types_of_runners_barefootDid Vibrams come out with a blue model, or is that just what frostbite looks like?

The Shirtless Guy

types_of_runners_shirtless You can still see your breath, but this guy is totally over it. Sometimes seen wearing gloves, despite going bare-chested. We don’t really get it, but we’re not complaining, either.

The All-Weather Runners

types_of_runners_all_weatherOften heard grumbling about how many people are out today, they’ve been hitting the paths all winter, while the rest of us retreated to the treadmill. And now that they have to compete for trail space again, they’re not happy.

The Neon Warrior

types_of_runners_neonThis woman clearly plays by the “the brighter the clothes, the faster the pace” rule: neon jacket, neon capris, neon socks, neon shoes—even her hair tie is neon. Hey, at least cars will be able to see her.

The Running Group

types_of_runners_groupSeen mostly from behind, these packs always seem to be cranking out effortless four-minute miles—while chatting and laughing to boot.

The Marathon Trainers

types_of_runners_marathonersOnly five weeks to go until Boston, everyone! Whether they’re consulting their training plan, pushing their way through a grueling long run, or hitting the track for some speed work, you’ll be able to pick out the runners who are training for a marathon pretty easily—because they’ll tell you all about it.

The First Timers

types_of_runners_beginnersWhether they’re trying out C25K or just seeing how far their old gym shoes can take them, we’re always happy to see new runners! But learn from our mistakes: ditch the cotton clothes and get supportive shoes.

The Tech Heads

types_of_runners_techIf they’re not staring at their Garmin, they’re fiddling with their heart rate monitor or scrolling through their iPod. Hey guys, look up! It’s a really nice day out here.

The Ultra Runners

types_of_runners_ultramarathonOkay, the marathon trainers may be intense, but they have nothing on these guys. Usually carrying backpacks (to store their bandages, water, spare socks, and food—yes, food, since Gus won’t quite cut it on a 50-plus mile run), they have a certain weary, glycogen-depleted, all-knowing look you can’t miss.

The Doggy Joggers

types_of_runners_dogSO. JEALOUS. If we had a puppy bounding away by our side, we’d never skip a run again.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
