Humidity from hell, and each new lap hotter than the last. Welcome to long distance running in the subcontinent. We wanted a running short that's light, and swift drying over hours while having the right pocket design for stocking needs of distance running. Cue the Athlos Distance Running Shorts, our most technical shorts yet.

Distance running shorts have been a design challenge over the years. A great pair of running shorts dries swiftly on the go, offers freedom of long strides, and tops it with max comfort. That's the shorts we wanted to build. The Econyl fabric feels fast owing to its swift drying fiber and the silky soft texture. The lightweight knit feels agile, and the 4-way stretch ensures you feel unrestricted even on your longest stride.


Runners have certain stocking needs for race days and long endurance runs. Gels, cash, keys, and the occasional cellphone. Relax, we have it covered. 2 unique side- pockets to store gels. One zippered back-pocket for keys and the 4th one on the liner - built to support your 5 inch smartphones holding them tight against your body. And all of this comes minus any bounce or bulk.

What good is a running short without a good liner? The Distance shorts comes paired with a liner that provides support at right places while getting out of your way. Its next to nothing hand-feel and firm support makes you forget you are wearing anything, in a good way.


We're pretty confident you'll love the distance shorts. If for some reason it falls short of your standards after you receive them, we will arrange a free pickup and issue a full refund. We'll also arrange a pickup if you want to exchange it for a different size.

The best way to test a running shorts is to put it through a hard run - if there are any issues they will surface. So before the release we did a pre-sale among our existing users. Here is some of the feedback we have received.
