Washington Running Report, a bi-monthly publication covering running, fitness, and multi-sport was recently revamped to a glossy magazine and is distributed throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, namely Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia. A new digital edition has been added as well as new columns to reflect the diverse running communities: Military Running Scene, A Woman’s Perspective, and The Senior Runner.
“The running and fitness industry is recession resistant and with more people choosing to lead healthy lifestyles and road race participation growing, we’re providing the best local resource to motivate and educate our readers,” said Kathy Freedman, Publisher and owner of Capital Running Company, a race management company. “Our contributors are local runners and experts who share a passion for their sport and our advertisers know we are the source to reach this market.”
Sue Himes, CDR, U.S. Navy, pens “Military Running Scene,” and has represented the U.S. Armed Forces team in both the marathon and cross country. Coach Kirt West has been the online coach for the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile and, as a senior runner in his early 60s, shares his journey to stay fit. In 2011, six women will contribute to “A Woman’s Perspective” with topics ranging from finding motivation to balancing running with motherhood.
The digital edition has been launched with the March/April 2011 issue and can be found on the Washington Running ReportWeb site: www.runwashington.com.
