Announcing the Complete Running Network!

Posted by Filed Under: Web Site Announcements, Women's Running

We’re ‘Go For Launch’!
Today is a landmark day for Complete Running. Why? Because we’re excited to announce our re-launch as the Complete Running Network (CRN)!

A Bit of History
For the last few years, Complete Running has been famous for helping grow a fabulous community of runners who blog on the subject of running. Today, the Running Blog Family (RBF) has close to 900 members. The RBF is a wonderful “family” of runners who teach, learn from, support and inspire one another, and it’s that kind of positive energy that’s been the driving force behind its growth.

The Journey Continues
Today’s Web is all about community. It’s about readers and writers interacting in a free-flow of information and discussion. The era of the blog is at hand, and the latest trend is the formation of specialized networks–groups of people just like you coming together to freely share information in a way previously never experienced on the web.

In That Spirit
It’s time to unleash the talents and passion contained within the RBF. To that end, CRN is gathering some of the Web’s best writing talent together to create the freshest, most informative, inspiring and original running articles on the web.

We’ve assembled a team of runners (mostly RBF alumni) with a passion for writing who are committed to supporting your growth as a runner.

Be a Part of the Excitement!
Interact with us! Leave us lots of comments. Tell us how we’re doing. Link to us and tell your friends about us. Submit photos and links to your favorite websites and pitch us with your own writing ideas. We want to hear from you!

One Last Thing
Join our launch contest and win some great free stuff!

    You are all truly on the verge of starting a whole new race! I’m so excited to see what passions you uncover through this new course. Good luck to you all, hydrate well, remember that gadgets never beat guts, and if you hit a rough spot: dig in and push!

    Is there a button or menu item somewhere on the home page that will take me to the Running Blog Family?

    I can’t seem to find it.
