WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFNS) -- Air Force officials here will unveil new lightweight running shorts this month in time for the Air Force Marathon Sept. 19 here.

The shorts feature a durable, quick-drying nylon shell with polyester brief for moisture management, a 4.5 inch inseam, drawstring waist, and oversized inside back key pocket. 

They are the same shade of blue as the previous physical training uniform shorts, without the Air Force emblem or reflective material. Sizes offered will be XS to XXL and they are authorized for wear interchangeably with the current PTU shorts.

The Air Force responded to feedback from the field to develop shorts made just for running, and teamed up with New Balance to develop a garment that meets the needs of Airmen. Currently, the first batch of 4,000 of these running shorts is being shipped to the Army and Air Force Exchange Service Military Clothing Sales Store at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base where they will be unveiled for the first time.

Sales of these shorts are open to all Airmen, and available only at AAFES starting Sept. 11. Cost of the new shorts are $16.95 each, and proceeds from sales goes to help Morale, Welfare and Recreation. 

"You can't miss our display when you enter the store," said Jim Tagg, an AAFES Military Clothing Sales Store manager. "We are excited to be chosen by the Air Force to premier this great new item."

Although the shorts are premiering at Wright-Patterson AFB, it will be available Air Force-wide by mid-September.
