Cut for Speed

The Van Cortlandt Shorts strike the ideal balance between race-ready function and common good taste. It starts by defining the proper short short shape: one built for speed, but cut for dignity. Falling in the 2.5" inseam sweet spot and made from a lightweight and antimicrobial fabric, these shorts are a simple, modern take on a running classic.

Race Ready Performance

These shorts are cut for speed with race-day detailing, a 2.5” inseam silhouette, and a lightweight construction. The channeled drawstring waistband finishes the design so that they stay put at any pace.

Liner Notes

The shorts feature a lightweight liner in the same antimicrobial mesh as the body. Two pockets for fuel and a card sit at the back interior of the waistband.

A Mesh with Merit

The 2:09 Mesh came to be, not only for its soft and airy texture, but also for its antimicrobial properties. With the funk-free finish, the shorts are built to battle bacteria while you relish in the race day rush.

Shorts Guide

Our shorts collection is crafted to cover the full breadth of a training cycle from easy shakeouts to race day. We broke this list out by the short’s design intention so that you may find the best pair for your specific needs.


Quality from
Inside Out

A running short is only as good as its liner. So we built these from the inside out, using the same near-weightless, anti-stink 2:09 Mesh as the rest of the short. It's stitched with three separate panels for a more considered, comfortable fit. We finished the liner with two small pockets below the back waistband for stowing keys or credit cards.

Race Day is Sacred

We believe in the competition and meritocracy of racing. Not because winning and losing is particularly important, but because competition sends us on an innately human journey. The profound physical and mental demands of racing lead to a richer and more thrilling life. It makes us better human beings.
