Running skirts are the new fashion statement in the endurance sport world. Almost every sports gear company offers a version of them now, but there is only one company that can call itself the original: RunningSkirts.com
In 2008 Cindy Lynch entered her twin sister Christy into a lottery for the 2008 ING New York City Marathon. At the time Christy had no illusions or desire to run a marathon, she was a fashion designer for her own children’s clothing line, but that all changed when she made the cut and was entered for the marathon. Christy, determined not to wear the “regular” gym shorts that everyone else wore set out to design something “cute” to wear for the race. She came up with the running skirt and five years later Running Skirts is an internationally recognized company that sells skirts that cater to the runner, triathlete, ultra-runner, and other athletes in this fashion savvy world of athletics.
The RunningSkirts.com company offers a variety of different skirt styles, including the lightweight Triathlon skirt, SubZero skirts with long running tights underneath, capri skirts, maternity skirts knee-length Spirit Skirts, running shorts, and sporty dresses.
The skirts styles include a pair of built-in compression shorts made from the same material as the skirt which lends to comfort, a lack of chafing, and a “no ride-up” factor. Each skirt also has two pockets with built in velcro closures that are large enough to hold an i-pod or keys.
Not only does RunningSkirts provide comfort and function they also provide a fashionable edge to your every-day workout and race. In just about every trend and tradition you can find a skirt to match your taste; from the camouflage pattern at the Marine Corps Marathon, to the red polka dot at the Disney Marathon and everything in between.
