The Marathon Speed Shorts are designed for those who favour a half tight over the longer distance. We revisited our best-selling lightweight racing half tights and allied them with our proven gel storage system to provide supreme functionality, without compromising speed or adding bounce.

To begin, we utilised our in-house-developed, ultra-lightweight French woven fabric, tailored skin-tight fit and laser cut hems, giving the shorts their barely-there feel, so you'll hardly notice you’re wearing them until your energy level dips. Next, we targeted storage and stability at speed: The large rear pocket swallows up to four gels, whilst loops on the waistband store two more, giving you the ultimate on-run carry over this iconic distance.


Minimises the weight of the garment, improves comfort and prevents the fraying of hems.
