Running Shorts Frequently Asked Questions

Running shorts are short so they don’t get in your way or chafe your thighs while you jog, sprint or train for your next 26.2. If you prefer more coverage, choose short tights, either alone or layered beneath running shorts. You can also pick a two-in-one style of shorts, which have the tights built in. There are also options for longer running shorts that hit around mid-thigh.
The shorts that are best for running don’t chafe your skin or bunch up and prevent you from moving easily. Running shorts should allow for a full range of motion. They should fit close to your body and be made of fabric that doesn’t sag or flap around. You’ll also want a comfortable waistband that stays put. Breathable, sweat-wicking fabrics help move moisture away from your skin. Some running shorts include a built-in liner to reduce chafing and increase breathability. Look for shorts that have pockets if you want to keep your phone or keys close.
What’s different about running shorts is length — they’re typically shorter than shorts made for basketball or training. Not all running shorts are very short, however. Short tights, also known as half tights, provide more coverage without blocking range of motion. Wear them on their own, or layer them under shorts. Running shorts may have split side hems, which is another way to make movement easy. And many have built-in liners. These can help reduce chafing, add to breathability and even replace underwear.
