I've got the book and found it as a excellent door-stopper. Even better use for killing flies.

Is there anyone left subscribing then?

I think i might be next to cancel. Have been thinking about it for the last few months, mind was made up after there was no review on the 2nd biggest marathon in Britain - Edinburgh. This was my first marathon and i was looking forward to reading about it. Running Fitness seems a better read these day. Anyone agree?

My mum's the one who has the subscription - I just read  the interesting bits afterwards (I also nicked her RW account, hence the subscriber tag ).

There was one feature a few mags ago about ultra running which was interesting, aside from that it's pretty much the same every edition - Sprint has it bang on.

The training sections are rubbish, focusing on the one "magic workout" that will help you to lose 10 stone, knock 18 hours off your marathon time AND help resolve all world conflicts. Oh, and it takes less than 15 seconds to perform.

I'd rather get my training help from those on the forums who KNOW what they're talking about. Also the banter is good here

I given up on RW after 17 years buying the mag. It gone so downmarket. It copy the format
of Men's Health and applying it to RW. Its not a proper running mag anymore. Just a fitness
lifestyle mag.

I think there's too much emphasis on people new to running. I know we all started somewhere and you absolutely cannot neglect the beginners (and I would never want to) but I'm not a beginner, nor am I an elite runner. I'm not even a good runner! I'm an improver who doesn't get enough help with improving.

Does that make any sense or is it too soon after my first cup of tea to be coherent?

Just Run - Rw towers do not read any part of the forum other than 'website bugs'. It might be worth you starting a thread there to get their attention, I have seen similar instances where that has got someone to look into the situation.

Interestingly, I`ve just got hold of the American version, September issue of Runner`s World (pdf issue) and it`s far better than the UK version, obviously the dates/venues are of no use but with regards to the layout, content and structure, it`s far superior!
