Runner’s World to Acquire Running Times Magazine

Posted by Filed Under: News and Opinion

Via Scott Dunlap’s A Trail Runner’s Blog comes word that Rodale, Inc. is acquiring Running Times magazine.

From Scott’s blog:

Today, Rodale, Inc., publisher of Runner’s World magazine, announced the acquisition of Running Times Magazine for an undisclosed price. Both magazines have been doing well in the last few years (Runner’s World has a base rate of 630,000 subscribers, while Running Times has 105,000 but is growing faster; both are increasing ad revenues). Apparently the plan is to continue to let them run independently, short of combining their run race calendars. Man, let’s hope so. I’ve always found Running Times to be a quality, unique read written by competitive runners.

Scott goes on to make a plea to Rodale, Inc. – one I heartily agree with. Give Scott a visit for the rest of his thoughts on the matter.
