If enough pre-orders are received by February 16, 2017, her skirt will be available for sale! The cost is $76.50 and the orders will be fulfilled if they get enough orders ... so share this with your other running friends! Click here to pre-order your Long Haul Skirt!
Deb Brown, a runner from the Portland area, submitted an idea for a running skirt to gear company "Skirt Sports," and they loved it. The submission was for a promotion on the Skirt Sports website, where runners have shared their ideas for the perfect running gear.
Brown's idea is to combine a running belt with a running skirt for those runs where you need more than just a key pocket and somewhere for your phone. Read on for her description, and then click here to support a local runner with your vote! (Tip: once you're on the page, do a Ctrl+F to search for Haul and skip to her submission.)
Are you looking for an alternative to your waist pack or handheld? Do you dream of a running skirt with ample pockets to carry nutrition, essentials or even a small water bottle? Me too! So I designed The LONG HAUL SKIRT, and submitted the idea to Skirt Sports. The Long Haul has 2 gusseted (aka expandable) back pockets for small bottles, gloves, or a small shell; a center back zipper pocket for secure storage (phone, electrolyte tabs), plus 2 side pockets on the 6″ (no chafe!) compression shorts. And of course, an internal continuous drawcord to secure your load.
You can vote once a day on as many styles as you like. Share with friends and family who would like to see this design come to life. Voting ends January 8, 2017. Only designs with enough votes make it to the next round for funding.
