Background: The National Calendar Magazine for Runners launched in 1977 with a simple premise: provide the running community with race results, along with calendars and schedules for upcoming races. Over the years the publication evolved into Running Times, which now goes far beyond its statistical roots to include feature stories, training advice and more. The title was purchased by Rodale in 2007, placing the pub under the same umbrella as chief competitor Runner's World. But it distinguishes itself from other running mags by targeting serious runners as well as covering high school runners, college runners, masters (runners age 40 and older) and trail running. "We're for the dedicated, passionate runner who wants to get faster," says deputy editor Sarah Lorge Butler. "It doesn't mean we're exclusively focused on fast people, but we're focused on helping people who take their running seriously."
