Run like a girly-girl

Running skirts, eh?

TORONTO, Dec. 11 - You heard right! Sporty skirts are finally hitting the road from Victoria to the Maritimes, and they're not just for tennis players and cheerleaders.

Running Skirts, Inc., is offering runners a chance to abandon the frumpy, boyish shorts of their high school gym class and step into something that makes it fun to run like a girl.

The skirts are already a huge hit in the U.S. and have been migrating across the border.

Now, with the new Canadian division, runners won't have to pay duty taxes for the latest in
fitness fashion.

Developed by marathoners and fashionistas tired of forfeiting style for a better pace, the skirts are made of lightweight sweat-wicking fabric.

Unlike shorts, there is no awkward bunching, as the skirts are made without interior seams that cause rubbing and chaffing of your unmentionables (ouch!).

The Running Skirt with attached brief or Athletic Skirt with attached compression shorts, stays put in all the right places.

The skirt doesn't flip up and the briefs and undershorts don't ride up!

Made with two convenient side pockets perfect for storing energy gels and bars, keys & mp3 players.

Sporty and sassy, the skirts come in 14 colors.

Add a little style to your next jog, spin class, yoga, pilates or gym workout. also offers matching tops and performance headbands to complete the look.

Still have doubts?

These skirts have been tested at the Boston, Scotiabank, Toronto and NYC Marathons.
