a lightweight, sweat-wicking, four-way stretch fabric that feels cool and comfortable, keeping us moving in our hottest workouts
woven for strength and no-bulk performance, this four-way stretch fabric moves with us and stays out of our way
why we made this
We made these lightning-fast run shorts for our long-legged runners who want to stay cool without showing too much skin. The same great fit as our classic Speed Short, cut longer in the leg so we can focus on our stride not on keeping our backsides covered.

Flattering and comfortable
I've been buying many shorts to try for running, to see how they perform and which ones I like best. I ordered these in 2 sizes, a 6 and an 8. According to waist size, I'm an 8, and hip size, I'm a 6. The 8s were way too big, and the 6 is perfect. The length on the leg is really nice. Not too short, but not too long. The 4 way stretch fabric is so very light! It drapes beautifully too. I have really skinny legs, and the leg openings weren't huge and gaping on my like some shorts.
I took them for a test drive today on a treadmill, 4 mile run. When they get sweaty, they bunch in the crotch. Not my favourite feeling. A bit of chaffing, but I forgot body glide today, so that's pretty much my fault. As soon as I stopped running, they fell back into place, and dried so quick! Overall, an okay short. I'm still looking for the perfect short that doesn't bunch up... maybe they don't actually exist??

great for running!!!
I bought a pair of these in the sea check plaid (which I believe are 2 way stretch) and they are perfect for running and general workouts. My legs are on the bigger side, these give just the right amount of coverage, and are not tight. Please make more in fun colors like the speed shorts! I love the patterned waistbands but wish it was allover, you only need so many black shorts since no one sees the waistband.

Best Running Shorts!!!!
These shorts are seriously perfect!!!! Perfect feel, fit and fabric! The elastic pull cord can't come out like other running shorts and doesn't have to be tied! They don't slip down or ride up. They stay put and do not make you feel exposed while running. They are also so comfy and are perfect for lounging or running errand. I want 10 pairs of them!

One one hand I really love these because they're so comfortable and light weight. On the other hand, I never want to run in them because they just soak up my sweat and leave a big stain in the back. Mine are in a grey color so maybe black would have been the better choice, but none of my other shorts leave such a noticeable sweat stain like these do. So I really only wear them around the house or for running errands, but not actual running.

The best running shorts
These are the best running shorts. I have only shopped at lululemon recently and didn't know they had shorts in normal length (I has only seen people wearing the ultra-short ones). These are perfect. Material is nice and thin, waist band is so comfortable, and they don't ride up at all. The length is just right. I can tell they will be nice and cool in the summer.

So excited about my new shorts. I hate ordering clothes online when I am not exactly sure how they will fit. They are a great length, not too short, not too long. I wear them at CrossFit and they are just perfect.

I always desperately wanted a pair of speed shorts. When i went to the Lulu Store to try them on, I realized that because of my height (6'0) the speed shorts were WAY too short. They were more or less a booty short on me! When I tried these, they were the perfect compromise. They were the perfect length, whilst still being light and breezy. I wore them all summer with everything, and they held up. They fit TTS, as I am a size 10 in everything lulu, and these were no exception. Working at a summer camp, having an easy short that you can do everything in is important, and these shorts filled that purpose! The seams on the back are flattering, and they cover everything that needs to be covered. Highly recommend.

i usually get a 4 in lulu pants so thats what i got in the shorts. they're a little slim but are quite stretchy. a 6 was too baggy. I'm 5'2" and 117 lbs. my legs aren't sticks, but they're not that wide either.
these shorts aren't too long, nor short. they're just a little above my fingertips.
i can't wait to get to spring/summer so i can really start wearing these.
i only wish that there had been more color options at the store i go to! hopefully there will be more in my future.

Perfect conservative length shorts
Although my usual motto for shorts is "the shorter the better", I needed a pair of black shorts for work and thought wearing my Run: Speed shorts would be too risque. I am really happy with the length of these shorts as well as how they fit on my generously sized thighs. I bought a size 6 as I usually do for LL bottoms and they fit TTS. My only complaint is how the built in panty makes my butt look sometimes. I'm not sure how to explain it, but I sometimes feel like I'm wearing a diaper. I expected the back of these shorts to be identical to the speed short which I find very flattering on my rear. Overall, great product!
