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.
For women runners, planning your run also means planning the day pre and post the run. And how many pockets suffice for stocking your run essentials. One? Two?
What good is a running short without a good liner? Including a 5 inch smartphone pocket, 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.
My love for multiple pockets in a running gear has been taken care by Athlos quite well :) I can keep my phone and run effortlessly along with other mini pockets to store hydration stuff.
The material was soft and flexible enough to stretch out those crazy rocks during my trail!!!
Love these shorts both for running and for the gym. I think you need to take a size larger in these, for best fit.
This was my second buy. The shorts to die for. Pockets galore. I carry my world with me when i go for runs. Running has never been so easy for me. I mean i train myself and then if i have to think what to keep where, its so irritating.
The fabric is super comfortable, the inner tights make me spread my legs wherever and however i wish to. Gives me total freedom.
Overall they are nice and super comfortable . But I feel while running they outer pants tend to ride up and I’m not comfortable with that. Maybe if the outer shorts were more loose, they wouldn’t ride up like this.
Doesn’t ride up while running and is weightless
