Legend tells of Atalanta, the Ancient Greek huntress who wouldn’t marry any man unless he could beat her in a foot race. Almost every man who raced her lost, and was subsequently killed by Atalanta’s father, King Iasus.
But the most interesting part?
She wore running skirts.
The now-popular running skirt may have gotten its start in Ancient Greece, but the past few decades have seen it popularized by athletes like Kathrine Switzer, who ran the Boston Marathon in a “red nylon dance tunic,” and Ironman Athlete Nicole DeBloom, who won Ironman Wisconsin while wearing a running skirt she designed herself.
It isn’t uncommon to see women wearing running skirts in races from local 5Ks to the Olympic Marathons Trails (Sally Meyerhoff wore one, placing 20th with a time of 2:39:39.) What is uncommon is finding quality skirts that take the toll of tough trails and fast road runs and still come in flattering, colorful designs.
INKnBURN’s Sport Skirts, however, have been designed to do both: made of a light-weight and stretchable woven fabric, our skirts help to wick away moisture and prevent chaffing. Other features include:
two large front pockets (with flaps to ensure that you don’t lose the contents, like keys and cash!)
a wide waistband with beautifully printed art (which is different than the design on the skirt), to be rolled down or kept flat
comfortable shorts as the skirt’s inner lining; an extra panel runs between the crotch and from side to side, ensuring wider coverage and better moisture control where it’s needed most
completely unique designs, from our popular Peacock Skirt (which represent all-seeing knowledge and wisdom) to our head-turning Dark Denim Sport Skirt (which really make it look as though you’re running in a jean skirt!)

If you’re on the fence about whether or not you’ll like running in our INKnBURN Sport Skirts, here are some recent comments about why your customers LOVE theirs!
I prefer skirts over shorts, mainly because if I’m going to get all icky and sweaty, at least I look cute doing it! The other reasons are less flattering-it’s easier to go to the bathroom when you are in the middle of nowhere and you can wipe snot on the inside of the skirt and no one can tell you were totally unladylike–Amanda Hughes
I love to wear them, especially in longer races, because they feel less constricting and allow me to move freely. And, having spent much of the past fifteen years home with kids, I’m jeans and sweats, I like showing up for a race feeling like I look my best. It helps my energy and performance.–Karah Levely
I’ve been running for over 8 years and had always run in shorts, until I found INKnBURN skirts. I was drawn to the beautiful designs and own three…with the intention to add to the collection. Now I run in both shorts & skirts. I like to wear the skirts because they allow me to still look cute & feminine.–Michelle Alaman Corbett
Basically, I look for freedom of movement when I’m on the trail. Skirts give that freedom, and allow your legs to move and to climb easier than shorts would. (imagine climbing steps 2 at a time–this is basically what some of the climbs are like with roots and rocks as your stepping stones) Skirts move with you and don’t create a friction point in between your legs like the extra fabric on shorts would. I also think many women who run trails are drawn to the designs and colors that skirts bring. Trail runners are very individual and like to show their flair and personality. Skirts–and another reason Ink N Burn is the best–often come in different designs and colors and allow women to feel more feminine yet show their personality and flair. I personally like the feel of a “boy short” liner and this is another reason I love Ink N Burn’s design. The boy short moves with you and doesn’t ride up. It covers the inner leg where chaffing can be an issue and thus eliminates the possibility of it occurring. Trail runners are usually covering distances at a slower speed and are thus out there a longer amount of time. This makes chafing more of a possibility and the boy short really helps to stop it. I have run thousands of miles in the Ink N Burn skirts and I’ve never once had chafing on my thighs–Jen Edwards
