Runner’s World (a glossy magazine published 12 times a year) includes content for a broad range of runners—from track and field athletes and 5K and 10K athletes to multi-sport athletes and long-distance runners. The magazine covers races of every distance, up to the marathon. It appeals to many novice runners or those competing in shorter events. In Runner’s World you’ll also find product and shoe reviews.
Marathon & Beyond offers focused content: every article in the magazine relates to marathons and ultramarathons—training information, nutrition, race strategies, running history, and so on. You won’t find articles like “10 Ways to a Faster 10K” or “5 Ways to Flatter Abs.” M&B appeals to first-time and veteran long-distance runners. The magazine offers in-depth marathon profiles, complete training programs, exotic destination race accounts, rich historical perspectives, and science you can use. Most articles in other magazines are 3 to 4 pages (500 to 1,500 words); Marathon & Beyond articles run as long as they need to (sometimes 15 or 20 pages).
