3 pillars of Run Little Monkey

Ego Friendly Activewear™

Trouble finding the perfectly-sized exercise shirt that’s fun and fits your body? We’ve got your back, your sides and your front at Run Little Monkey!  Our sizing is generous and over-the-top comfortable. Literally! We know the last thing you want when you’re ready to run or kick-starting a new exercise regime is to feel bad in your shirt. Our sizing fits all life stages, even when it feels like your butt has moved from the back to the front! Check out our sizing guide to find your perfect fit.

Fabulous fabric

Bamboo, what can we say? It’s awesome. Mix that up with some super soft cotton and a little elastane and you’ve got one of the softest shirts you’ll ever want to get sweaty in. You may never want to take them off.

The unique qualities of our 48% cotton • 47% rayon from bamboo • 5% elastane fabric are:

  • Moisture wicking that keeps you dry by drawing sweat away from your skin.
  • Bamboo is naturally anti-microbial and anti-bacterial, which helps keeps your shirt pretty stink free (but you do still need to wash it!)
  • 50+ UPF (ultra-violet protection factor) of the fabric helps protect delicate skin against UV rays.
  • Too cool for school: bamboo fabric stays around 2 degrees cooler in hot weather and also keeps you significantly warmer in the cold.
  • Supremely soft against the skin, light, and durable.

Good, Canadian Fun
If you’re a Canadian, you know that most online shopping is not all about you. Well RLM is totally, all about you. Our monkey is the most Canadian monkey ever, just look at her sneaks! Our designs are all dreamed up here in the Great White North, we ship from Canada, and we charge in Canadian dollars (HST too, sorry).

Best of all, of course, our shirts have that fun Canadian flair designed to flaunt at home, at the gym and on the run!

 Run Little Monkey in the community

At Run Little Monkey, we support and promote women in sports as a way for them to build confidence, build networks, and, of course, stay healthy and fit. 

You’ll often find our owner volunteering at road races and other sporting events and as we grow will continue to grow our community engagement.

From the start, we are supporting Girls Inc. of York Region, which runs an amazing sports-focussed program for girls and young women. A portion of the sale of every Run Little Monkey shirt will go to support their efforts.

Girls Inc. Sporting Chance provides girls with opportunities to have fun; learn basic movement and sport skills; increase their coordination, endurance, and strength; consider the career opportunities connected to sports; and learn about successful athletes and the history of women in sports.  They learn how to be both cooperative and competitive, and how to discipline their bodies and their minds.
