Runur Athletics

At Runur Athletics we are aiming to make a pair of running shorts to outlast your longest run. Nothing about running is easy. The training hours are lonely. The weather changes quickly. Your body rebels against taking the road less traveled. Yet, in those moments, you unlock a side of yourself you didn't even know existed. There is no ego, no doubt, no self-judgement. It's just you and the road ahead.  As I started my running journey I had no idea where to find the apparel that I needed to ensure my journey was comfortable and efficient. So I started out seeking to solve the problem of chafing for myself.  After running over 2,000 miles in my design (100 of those miles done within the same 24 hours), I am confident these shorts will withstand whatever obstacle you throw at them. It’s time to feel the power of your own strength. At Runur, we celebrate the real you. Our running shorts won’t back down. They're tough and bold. Just like you. No matter how you run ur run, run it well.
