Make a Splash
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: a swim-friendly running short, designed to get you to the water’s edge with speed and comfort while performing like a swimsuit when you hit the water.
Designed for a Dunk
Regular running shorts aren’t cut out for a swim (you’ll chafe all the way home). And swimsuits aren’t made for running (you'll chafe all the time). These 2.5-inch inseam shorts are made for both. Made from an Italian swim fabric previously used for Olympic Speed suits, its four-way stretch knit shell is moisture-wicking, quick-drying and cool to the touch. Our updated RCR silhouette is designed for summer adventures and features a high mid-rise with a full leg and a curved hemline with tall slits for a full range of motion.
On the Line
The key to a successful mid-run swim is a liner that can dry in a snap, this year’s update features a lighter-weight version of the swim fabric used in the shell, giving the shorts a barely-there feel with light compression to prevent bunching. A hidden key pocket in the liner sits at the front right hip.
The Run Cannonball Run Shorts feature two hand pockets and an invisible zip pocket at the back right hip for secure storage. Just don’t forget to take out your phone before leaping.
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 red rock in Sedona or ducking into chilly waves off Cape Code. However you do it, this is what summer is all about. Make a splash: run, cannonball, run.
