About

My Two Passions

Only two things send me into a state of absolute bliss. Creating something from a pile of raw materials and running any distance. For me each is journey into the unknown. I started making adult running tutus shortly after I started running races of 5k and 10k. I saw other runners in sparkle running skirts and super hero running costumes at these events. I didn't now if I was brave enough yet to wear a Wonder Wonder tutu complete with crown and wrist cuffs but I thought a nice fluffy rainbow running tutu would be perfect for me. So I purchased supplies and got to work right away. Come to find out I was pretty good at making tutus and adult running costumes.Race Junkie was born shorty after the race.

I also got a lot better at running and enjoyed my time on the pavement and trails. I kept hearing about the Disneyland Half Marathon and Tinkerbell Half Marathon Weekend so I decided to train for a half marathon and saved up for for entry fee. All I can is WOW! Disney is one amazing race. So many great costumes on the course! Minnie Mouse, Snow White, Maleficent, Cruella, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella.The list goes on and I was just floored by everyone's creativity and care when putting together their individual costumes. You can now find me running all the California Disney races with my favorite charity. I love to dress up in Character themed colors and cruise around taking pictures with cast member. It is an incredible experience and I encourage everyone to do it at least one.

As time went on my skills got a little better in the craft room where I work and my running improved again. I moved from running half marathons to running full marathons and ultra marathons. Here is what happened.....I am over 40 and sometimes I overheat A LOT so I couldn't always wear a tutu on these run so with my new and improved craft skills I picked up some fabric and started sewing sequin sparkle skirts and fabric running skirts. They were perfect!! Light and airy, super cute and matched perfect with all the running tanks I have in my shop. I received so many compliments. Here is the real secrets to running a race. If you are feeling amazing during a race and like you could run forever that is probably going to go away at some point and when it does things are going to get ugly out there. Your 2 secret weapons are 1. Being mentally tough and 2. Looking really cute and here is why looking stinking cute will work...Just when your feeling like a moving piece of poo someone yells out " Hey nice tutu!" or " I Love you sparkle skirt" or a little girl says " You look just like a Princess" Guess what? All the energy floods back and you take off like the wind. All it takes as a tiny word of encouragement to get you going again.

With over 8,000 sales I have talked to 100s of customers who have been worried about wearing an adult racing costume. So 2 years ago elite athlete Kellie Nickerson signed on as Race Junkie ambassador. Kellie won the inaugural Tinkerbell Half Marathon. She is known for running all her races in a tutu. She can tell you and has photos to prove it that Race Junkie tutus and tanks are made to last. They are constructed so that they will not move no matter what. They are just the right kind of fluffy and chafing has not and will not ever become an issue. I only make quality product that I have worn myself , that have been tested in distances from 5k to 50k. If I wouldn't wear it then I won't sell it.

Race Junkie is a brand you can trust that was built from the love running and creating.
With over 1,000 5 star reviews I believe Race Junkie is a name you can trust in being the very best running costumes made today.

Frequently asked questions

What size tutu or skirt should I order?

When ordering any of the running skirts never overthink the size.
They run true to size. So, if you normally wear a size medium running pants and order a size medium skirt it will fit perfectly. Just be aware to not order down a size on skirts. It is always better to have a little wiggle room than no room at all.

When ordering a tutu following the sizing chart provided in the listing and again order by the size of your running pants. Medium pants/Medium tutu. NEVER order up a size on tutus. They will end up being too big and move around while you run. You want your tutu to fit securely on your hips.

What length tutu should I order?

When picking your length keep in mind that your tutu is meant to be worn on your hips. Not on your waist. So, it will sit low and 9 inches is much longer that an actually sounds. It is the ideal length for running.

12 inches will come be mid thigh length on an average height person.

16 inches will come to your knees on 150lb 5'5 female. Length can vary depending on height, weight and body shape.

20 inches is going to be very long. Much more like a skirt.

The longer the tutu the more it will hang like a skirt and poof out less like a tutu.

What are the tutu made of?

Each tutu is made with over 75 yards of American made tulle.
They are hand tied in knotted in a special way that will prevent them from falling apart or becoming loose.

Race Junkie is never skimpy on the tulle or the love and care put into each carefully handcrafted tutu.

Race Junkie tutus have been tested by runners on distances from 5k to 100k.This is a brand you can put 100% faith of being a REAL running tutu not a costume piece like other brands.
