Running Shorts for Men

Men’s Running shorts

Our collection of running shorts has something for everyone, whether you’re working your way up to a 5k or training for an ultra-marathon. Shop running shorts for men in a range of lengths, including the popular 3” and 5”. You can also choose from a range of colours and styles, such as the essential grey and black shorts which go with any look, or even fluorescent green or prints for something a little more exciting.

Our collection of shorts for running are created to keep you comfortable, limit distractions and help you to stay focused on achieving that new PB. You can move freely with every stride, thanks to lightweight materials that have a barely there feel.

Breathability and ventilation is an absolute necessity when it comes to your running shorts, as being uncomfortable due to not being dry could be the difference between smashing your run or not enjoying it at all. Our running shorts are designed to be breathable, even when you are struggling for breath. Whilst sweat-wicking materials help to draw sweat away form your skin, keeping you feeling cool and dry.

Our men’s running shorts are designed with performance in mind. Split seams allow for increased movement and flex, keeping you comfortable when you’re clocking up the miles. Whilst features such as drawcord waistbands keep your shorts firmly in place, no slipping down with each step.

Look out for design features that take it step further, such as reflective branding for extra visibility when running at night. Or pockets that allow you to run hands-free as you can easily store your essential items, such as keys, earphones case and phone. This is perfect for keeping your belongings safe on long runs.

What type of shorts are best for running?

You might be wondering, with all the options available, what are the best shorts for running? Well, each style has its own benefits.

Tight running shorts can sit like a second skin, moving with you. This makes them popular as they can help reduce chafing as the material stays fixed in place. On the other hand, loose shorts can offer increased airflow due to the space between your skin and the shorts, and design-wise some prefer the looser fit. If you’re looking for the protection of tight shorts, but want to be slightly more covered, you may find our 2-in-1 running shorts perfect, as they contain an inner fitted pair of shorts too. So you can avoid chafing whilst also having peace of mind that you’re adequately covered.

Some find that short shorts are ideal for running, such as 3 inch shorts, this is because there is less material around your legs, offering more freedom of movement with every stride. The 2-in-1 running shorts come in handy here too, if you’re not quite comfortable wearing short shorts, as the pair of inner shorts provides that extra layer of cover.

How to wear men’s running shorts

On a warm day, you can pair your running shorts with a Running Shirt, creating the ultimate performance running outfit. On chillier days, you might want to layer your running shorts under a pair of men’s leggings, and throw a running jacket or gilet over top, the for a layer of protection against the unpredictable weather.
