|Subject: ||RE: Serious College Runners, What do you wear to practice?|
I ran for two different schools in my time, with two entirely different levels of commitment to running. On my first college team, a borderline top 10 community college team, I was the only one wearing basketball shorts, everyone else wore regular running shorts. Some even wore tights on cold days. That was my first time ever being around teammates who were very serious about doing well. On my second team, at the time at the bottom half of the KCAC (an NAIA conference for those who don't know), everyone wore basketball shorts. On that team, I was the only one who got in any halfway decent mileage. I ran over 80 miles a week at one point, and no one else ever got over 45 I believe. Many teammates did not even meet the minimum requirements of my coach for the summer, which was very easy compared to a lot of other college programs. So to answer your question, yes a lot of runners on the better college teams are wearing short running shorts and other technical running gear.
