2.0 out of 5 stars I prefer Runner's World May 28, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
As I write this review, there are only two reviews of Running Times right now and I feel like I need to add my two cents. A big reason I subscribed to Running Times was based on these two positive reviews.
I subscribed to Runner's World before I had ever heard of Running Times. I wanted even more motivation to get out there and run distance, so I subscribed to both. Running Times concentrates too much on athlete runners and "destination spots" to run... like Hawaii or the Rocky Mountains, places that have beautiful pictures but are of no interest to me and my running. Furthermore, Running Times concentrates on individual races and results with more detail than I care for. I really don't need a one-page article on the Chicago marathon. I find the occasional article about eating better or training for a better 5k/10k/marathon in Running Times, but those articles are pretty sparse.
I grab an issue of Runner's World and it's the complete opposite. I get information about training, eating, injury prevention, stretching, etc. It has the same kind of race calendar as Running Times for the 5 and 10k's that I want to run. It's information that I can use as a runner. If you'd rather get information about how to improve YOUR running and not stories about running, stick with Runner's World.

4.0 out of 5 stars Running Times is the runner's best resource August 21, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I am writing because I believe the most recent review of Running Times paints an inaccurate picture of the magazine. From my perspective, Running Times is a much better resource than Runner's World for serious runners, serious athletes, AND the rest of us who are serious ABOUT our running.
My experiences with Runner's World make me think about the thousands of people who "run" road races all across the United States. I put run in quotes because there are plenty of people who run races to finish the race, very noble goal. Runner's World provides quick suggestions for making longer races interesting (i.e. take a camera on a secenic race course and take some pictures). Great idea to get people out for races, but not a good idea for someone who wants to improve their race time. Gallowalking will get you to the finishline, but if you have been training appropriately, it will not drop your race times.
My experiences with Running Times tend to make me think of those people who want to drop a minute from their 5k PR. Whether you are running 21 minute 5k's or running 16 minute 5k's, Running Times will provide runners who are interested in improving their running with the information they need to improve. Pete Pfitzinger in particular brings an incredible wealth of scientific and real-world training and racing knowledge to each issue of the magazine.
I highly recommend Running Times to anyone who is serious ABOUT their running.

4.0 out of 5 stars light years ahead of Runner's World July 17, 2009
By Dr
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
This is a great running magazine, probably the best there is out there. If you're looking to subscribe to Runner's World, please do yourself a favor and don't. I was subscribed to RW for years, and every magazine was practically the same (how to get faster quickly! how to loose the fat! What to eat!... etc. and the thing is it keeps repeating itself forever).
RW is kind of a fashion-running-magazine (what nike was to running shoes until about two years ago when they decided to forego fashion and restart making serious running shoes).
Running Times, on the other hand is a serious a magazine as you can find in the subject (with the occasional -but better researched and written-- article about the fat, and the secret of getting faster).
Subscribe to this, and buy on the newsstand RW a couple of times a year... you'll be set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Some Other Running Magazines December 22, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
I have subscribed to Running Times magazine for about a year. I would say that it is more for someone who is interested in improving your running times, increasing distance, and improving form. There are sections dedicated to what is happening at the high school, college, professional and master levels. There are drills on just about everything related to running, including strength, technique and core routines. The authors are usually renowned coaches at all levels of participation.

If you are interested in a more light, easy reading running magazine, try Runners World. It's not a bad publication, but is much more "main stream" and geared to (dare I say) the more casual runner. Again, not a bad thing, but if you want drills and information to take you to YOUR next level, then I would recommend Times over World.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Junk in this Magazine March 31, 2005
By "Dory"
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I recommend this magazine to really learn techniques to improve your running level. There is not alot of filler in this small magazine. I find that this is the magazine I don't circulate with friends because I like to keep the articles for future reference. I learn something new each time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best magazine for runners March 23, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
After several years as a faithful subscriber to Runners World, I was ready for a change of pace. The other reviews for this magazine helped make this decision a simple one -- and a decision I wish I had made sooner. This magazine has everything that I was looking for: focusing on fine-tuning technique and training to maximize one's running potential. I would say that Runners World is okay for the casual runner/jogger or someone new to the sport. Running Times goes a step farther (or several steps farther) to cater to those that are looking to fuel their competitive fire. The most recent issue focused on minimalist running and included a list of exercises to let you know if you are ready to transition to the minimalist technique - very helpful for me. It also featured a section on common injuries to look out for when "running minimal" and how to avoid and treat those common ailments. Again, I couldn't be happier and the price was well worth it. Do yourself a favor, become a better and more informed runner, and subscribe to Running Times.
