Women's Capri Pants for Running

Perfect Pants for Spring and Fall Running

Running pants in a capri length (hitting below the knee, but above the ankle) are the perfect running attire for that "in-between" weather in early spring and late fall when it's too warm to wear running tights or pants, but also too cold to wear running shorts. Here are some running capris for every style and budget.

These capris are not too tight or not too loose, making them a popular choice among female runners. Stretchy fabric moves moisture away from the skin and dries quickly. Another great feature is the rear drop-in pocket in the waistband, where you can store small items.

These capris have a snug, but very comfortable fit. I didn't find myself tugging at them to get them to stay put. They also have a wide, slimming waistband. Another feature that I really like is the infinity drawstring, which doesn't pull out in the wash. One caveat: These capris do run big, so you'll probably want to go down a size. I typically wear a small in running pants or capris, but the extra-small fits me comfortably.
