Gift cards can be a valuable resource for running a busy race.
And they’re great for those looking to give back.
The ABC understands that gift cards can often be found at stores such as Kmart, which have a wide selection of items.
But some of the best gift cards to look out for are the ones from the two-year-old company known as 2FA Fortnite.
The company has been around for almost a decade and it is a leading brand of digital entertainment.
“We have been using the 2FA fortnites gift cards for many years, but we have always been keen to take it further, and to provide a truly global option to give away,” said 2FA’s head of digital marketing and content, Michael Sullins.2FA Fortnight is a great place to buy gift cards as they can be purchased with cash or in-store.
The best gift card to look for is the $10 gift card.
It has been used by many runners, both on race days and in the off-season.
The $10 is good for 2FA events, such as the Ironman Australia World Championships, and 2FA Australia’s New Zealand Tour.
“The $20 is great for the running community and can be used for a variety of purposes, such like a gift basket, a gift card for your favourite coffee shop or for your friends, family and co-workers,” Mr Sullings said.
“You can also buy a gift voucher for a 2FA training event for a friend or family member, and then get a gift bag for your local running group.”
You can even use your gift voucher to donate to a charity like the Red Cross.2Farther down the road, the $5 gift card is great if you’re looking for something more specific.
It has a $10 price tag and is available at some of 2FA stores in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
“There are also two $10 vouchers that you can get for a free gift, and a $5 one if you want to give a gift,” Mr O’Connor said.2Fa Fortnight can be found online or in stores such a Kmart or Woolworths.
Mr Sullinson said they would never sell a gift that was not part of the gift card agreement.
“It’s a no-brainer,” he said.
For runners looking to do some stocking stuff for the race, the second-hand goods store Aldi has a wide variety of gift cards.”2FA is a big part of our Australian race culture and is an important part of what makes this year’s race a big success,” Aldi’s director of racing, Tom Wilson, said.
If you’re running a marathon or longer, the best place to look is the gift shop.2fa.com.au has gift card options for the marathon and long distance.
But you may not want to spend more than a few bucks on a gift for your running partner.
“A lot of runners would be happier with a gift certificate, so if you are running long distance or marathon and don’t have that, then maybe consider gift certificates that have a price tag,” Mr Wilson said.
While 2FA has its own brand of gift vouchers, you can also look for similar products at other online stores such Amazon and eBay.
