Running Pants

What are Running Pants?

Running pants are pants specifically designed to provide support for runners. They are usually made of lightweight material.

Cotton pants/sweats are not ideal for running. They are not ideal for running because cotton soaks up sweat as you run. Cotton will retain moisture which makes it heavy and wet during exercise. Also, cotton pants/sweats usually have rough, uneven stitching, which can cause chafing. If you choose to wear cotton pants/sweats while running, make sure it is made out of lightweight cotton.
