There's nothing quite like interrupting an easy summer run to jump in a body of water. But in our experience, the aftermath is a drag (literally). Wet running shorts are a soggy mess, while swimsuits are too stiff to comfortably run in. The Run Cannonball Run is our solution: swim-friendly running shorts, designed to get you to the water’s edge with speed and comfort, while performing like a swimsuit when you hit the water.
Regular running shorts aren’t cut out for a swim (you’ll chafe all the way home). And swim trunks aren’t made for running (you'll chafe the whole time). The Run Cannonball Run is made for both. Made from an Italian swim fabric previously used for Olympic speed suits, its four-way stretch shell is moisture-wicking, quick-drying and cool to the touch. Inside, a breathable lightweight liner keeps you feeling fresh and dry post-dip.
Workouts can wait. When the sun’s shining and the mercury is heading toward triple digits, tear up your training plan and take your legs on an adventure. There are no rules or regulations; the only goal is to find the best body of water for submerging yourself mid-run. Maybe that means executing a perfect cannonball off a rock or ducking into chilly waves. However you do it, this is what summer is all about. Make a splash: run, cannonball, run.
West Coast Wander
The road trip is a summer tradition. For adventurous runners, such a journey provides ample opportunities to squeeze in some training. This season, we packed up a VW Westfalia for a trip across Oregon, filled with easy sessions, a track workout in the forest and of course – the run, cannonball, run.
