We guarantee warranty support for defects in material or manufacturing at Runners Athletics discretion for one year from the date of purchase.

If you order was delivered over 30 days ago, you are eligible to process a limited warranty. In order for us to process your claim, the following conditions must be met:

  • Product must be purchased directly through the Runners Athletics official website.

How Can I File A Claim?

If you need to file a warranty claim, Runners Athletics has the sole discretion to determine what qualifies as a manufacturer’s defect. At this time, the warranty evaluation process takes 5-7 business days. Click on the Warranty Claim button to submit a request. Alternatively, you may send an email with the photo to speedy@runnersathletics.com or via our Contact Us page.

Once we received a photo of the damaged item, we will assess it and determine if the claim is legitimate or not. If the claim is legitimate, we are happy to replace the entire hat/sunglasses depending on the circumstances. However, as a small business - please be aware there is a $9.95 processing fee which covers handling and fulfilment costs, excluding shipping. Once your item is approved, we will then send you an invoice for the fee.
