sustainability

Groundwork Knit is made using a premium grade nylon that has a significantly tighter woven filament than standard synthetics. Tighter filaments mean less microfiber shedding in the wash-cycle, plus greater durability of the garment (longer lifespan, more wearing).

Groundwork Knit fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

Exactly What I Needed

The 5" Pace Short is a much needed and appreciated addition to the lineup! It's the perfect length for shorter folks like myself. Comfortable and functional for running, cycling, and cross training. Size Medium fits perfectly for my hips with adjustable draw cord waist. Measurements: H: 4'10” Waist: 27” Hip: 40”

This short is exactly what I needed. In fact it's exactly what I asked for. My review of the original Pace Short was used in the email announcement for this new length Pace.

Whether this was already in the works or my review is what initiated the 5" Pace, I'm so pleased that Janji is a responsive company that is really invested in their runners. Thanks a million!

Dream shorts

In love with the 5" Pace shorts - they're literally a dream. Perfect length for me, breathable material, grippy silicone that doesn't make your legs feel like sausages, roomy phone/snack pocket. Love, love, love. Please make more colors or restock :)

For sizing reference, I am on the upper end of S per the size chart, but I preferred how the medium fit on my legs (muscular trail thighs, y'all!). Small fit better in my waist but with the drawstring, the medium works well.

Unicorn shorts!

As a person with more athletic thighs, 5in shorts often ride up/create an awkward bulge below the leg band that contributes to chafing but these are perfect! No movement, great fit on the leg, comfortable sticky dots to keep them in place, and just enough compression to be supportive without being overly tight. I also love that the fabric is light enough to not get overly hot when the temps are higher. Plan to buy more!

Finally! Something that doesn’t move!

I love these! Man, they’re buttery soft, have pockets for things or hands (even cooler) and the little no-slide dots really work. I naturally have muscular thighs and a larger rear, and these made me feel confident, not “naked.” I’m glad these are 5” because I’m not a fan of 3” or 7” shorts. I have not adjusted once during runs, and they’re very flattering. I imagine as the season gets warmer, this color (nettle) will certainly show sweat, but I love the color, and don’t care!

I love it!!

Doesn’t roll up or down! The fabric is so smooth and doesn’t make my skin chafe. I can comfortably run a half marathon with no problems. The pockets are also deep and super helpful for holding my iPhone, keys, gels without it feeling weighed down. Totally recommend and I would buy more.

Obsessed

I never leave reviews but I can't get over how much I love these shorts. They are amazing and my new go-to pair. They're super comfy, the pockets are HUGE, and they never ride up. Like I recently wore them on a 20-miler and didn't have to adjust them once. I also really love the 5" length - its the perfect length to help prevent chafing. Will definitely be buying in another color.

Old Faithful Revamped!

I purchased these shorts in part to replace the previous pair that I had used for years & is finally on it’s last legs and also to add a new racing kit for my upcoming marathon. I have to say that I am so loyal to Janji. These shorts will be in the rotation for as long as I am physically capable to run! I’m so excited that a 5” inseam came out in these shorts and the grippy parts were updated! Don’t even get me started on the color way.

Great running shorts

Love the length and how they stay put. The side pockets are a must for my phone. I am going to get another color.
