Posted by Filed Under: Magazines, Reviews

runner's worldZinio publishes digital magazines and they do a fantastic job of it. Here’s why:

  1. The quality is excellent—text is sharp and images are exceptionally vivid.
  2. You can zoom in and out on pages.
  3. The required Zinio reader is a free download that works on both Apple and Windows systems. It makes reading magazines fun!
  4. Zinio reader makes the experience of turning pages almost lifelike—like turning the pages of a print magazine.
  5. Looking for something specific within a Zinio magazine? No problem, you can search using key words/phrases (e.g., running tips) and find what you are looking for wherever it appears in the magazine.
  6. Environmentally friendly!
  7. If you’re a pack-rat like I am, digital Zinio is a great alternative for storing your favorite magazines.

Zinio recently added Runner’s World to its offerings. The version available for download is Runner’s World UK—not the North American version. That said, I’ve already downloaded two editions and was very pleased with the content. It is very close to what Runner’s World publishes in North America. Click here to tell Zinio you want Runner’s World North America edition.

And in case you’re just not sure, you can download a few free magazines so you can try before you buy.
Note: Runner’s World appears under Zinio’s Health & Fitness heading. While you’re there, take a look around. Zinio offers other health, fitness, and sports related magazines too!

About Mark Iocchelli

Also known as the "Running Blogfather", I'm a 40-something marathoner who has beaten stress fractures and terrible shin splints. Now I'm running double the mileage with no pain - and I'm getting faster. I love to talk about running form and Arthur Lydiard. I also enjoy taking photographs, have a beautiful (and very patient!) wife, and am the proud father of two crazy kids. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments about the site.

    I’ve been a Zinio user/reader for several months now and am glad to see more running magazines being added. It’s wonderful for time-pressed people who can’t let the boss see them reading “real” magazines — but can sure shoot up a screen soon as he or she walks by!

    Anne, that’s a benefit I hadn’t considered!

    Handy. I’m fighting the clutter-bug and like it that I can store good info without it gathering dust under my bed. The environmental non-impact is very nice, too.

    Thanks for the info!

    It looks like all Runner’s World needs now is to print something worth reading.
