Running Room Magazine is a free bi-monthly publication distributed at all Running Room retail locations across Canada. Print copies are mailed to all Running Room Rewards Program members (click “Subscribe” at left to register). An electronic version of each issue is also available under the “Get Active” tab.

In addition to training tips, product reviews, and informative articles by running experts, our magazine contains inspirational and motivational stories about real people in the running community.

Article Submission Guidelines

Running Room Magazine is always open to receiving submissions by writers and running enthusiasts who are interested in sharing their stories with our readers.

Authors will be given full credit for their submissions. Running Room does not pay for submission or photographs provided by writers.

Submissions can be e-mailed to as a text document or Microsoft Word file. A half-page story should be 350 to 400 words and full-page articles are 750 to 800 words. Running Room retains the right to edit all submissions prior to publication.

Due to the number of submissions received and the limited amount of space available, we cannot guarantee writers that their article will be published. Some articles may be selected for the e-magazine only (not the print version).


Running Room Magazine welcomes photos that are intended to accompany articles or taken at Running Room-sponsored events. We will not publish photographs with competitors’ products or logos and we reserve the right to edit or omit images that are submitted with articles.

Digital images can be supplied, however they must be high resolution to be suitable for magazine production. Images should be at least 300 dpi.

All images require a photo release form to be signed and completed by the photographer of the images. The completed release form can be scanned and e-mailed to or faxed to (780) 433-6433, Attention: Danielle or Magazine. Please indicate the author’s name on the release form so the photo can be matched to the submitted article.
