15 Best Running Websites Every Runner Should Read In 2020
When Nick and I started the We Run This podcast, we agreed that the content would cover the running lifestyle but have fun in the process.
Neither of us is an expert but we both have a passion for the sport of running.
While we do offer tips and suggestions on the podcast, we like to leave the real, researched information to the experts.
For this reason, we’ve collected our favorite running websites and some of the best running blogs on the internet.
Here are our suggestions for running websites and blogs for runners of all ages and experience levels.
This amazing running website is the online home of Runner’s World magazine. Running news, training advice, inspiring stories, running shoe reviews, gear tips, and more.
Runner’s World is, hands down, the world’s leading running magazine, motivating runners of all ages and abilities.

On Wednesday, Philadelphia runners kneeled silently for nine minutes in the middle of an intersection as a powerful demonstration for the Black Lives Matter movement. Nine minutes is 14 seconds longer than the time that now-former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kept his knee on George Floyd’s neck; the sustained pressure to the neck and back caused asphyxiation, killing the 46-year-old on Monday, May 25. Kneeling for one day or running for Ahmaud Arbery is a good start, says @richardissa, leader of @issaRUNcrew but it doesn’t stop there. “I don’t want to see the hashtag and then nothing after,” he said. “With zero puns, these things are marathons. If you really want to see change, then you are signing up for this marathon. You just signed up for the longest marathon of your life.” 🔗Link in bio the the full story. 📸:Kiet Vo

You never really appreciate what you have until it’s gone for a bit. This was 2 weeks ago when life seemed a bit more normal. The positive though is that I know these guys and gals are a strong and resilient bunch. What I appreciated most is the growth they showed this year as a team. They came together and supported one another regardless of their situation. I’m sure they are utilizing those skills now to support each other in a different way. No doubt when we all get through this they will come back better than ever.

Coaching is their passion and commitment. Whether you want to hit a marathon best at 2:40 or 4:20, whether your 5k PR is 17:00 or 32:00, the key to improvement is in the training and the ability to stay consistent.
