How to Write a Winning Pitch for Triathlete

Love following the New York City Marathon? Well, channel that enthusiasm for the sport of running into a byline at Triathlete.

The mag is the oldest and largest to cover triathlons in the U.S., but it’s not only for seasoned triathletes: there’s a special beginner’s issue each year. “We focus on those tips a lot, trying to shepherd people into the sport,” said managing editor Adam Elder.
