Somewhere in my 12 month, 11 issue subscription, Runner's World switched to a 6 issue per year model, which isn't what I subscribed to. I'm not blaming Amazon for not knowing what was going to happen because I don't think it's their fault, but I'm also not renewing my subscription because I wish that Runner's World had been more upfront with their sales strategy, and I have to admit, I feel a little swindled. I was wondering why it seemed slow to show up in the mailbox each month, and then I got my "renewal" email saying it is 6 issues per year.
Overall, I think this magazine is "sort of" informative for runners. It will frequently focus on elite athletes or someone who has overcome an obstacle (addiction, obesity, disease) to do fantastic things. Sometimes there are fun tips, exercises, stretches, and recipes. I like all of that. But, I feel like the main focus has become more advertising and "shoe guides". I am only going to buy so many pairs of running shoes a year (in 2018, I believe I bought 4-5 pairs (I ran 1660 miles, so 4 pairs sounds about right), 3 of them being Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 33 because I like to run in them), and when every issue focuses on new shoes, that's not that helpful to me.
I like running, I like reading about other people running, but this magazine is not that inspirational or motivational for me. I've found a lot more inspiration by reading running books, looking at running blogs, and mostly listening to podcasts on running (while running!), and none of those things are trying to sell me any running shoes or gear. And maybe after running for so long, I don't need anyone to tell me what gear/clothes/shoes to buy for running, and maybe I am not the target audience for this magazine.
Anyway, overall I would have rated this magazine a 3, because there are some nice parts that I enjoyed, but my feelings soured after realizing that they reduced the number of issues in the middle of my subscription with no notification until renewal time. Maybe they had a notice in the magazine itself, but if they did I totally missed it.
The magazine didn't help with inspiration/motivation, but my 2018 marathon plans were derailed by multiple thyroid surgeries, so not the magazine's fault. Anyway, I'm on the lookout for another running/fitness magazine because this one was a huge disappointment to me.

The magazine seems to have gone downhill as well. Every article that was in the last edition seemed to be an advertisement for some sort of new product that was on the market. Also got tired of seeing so and so who lost a leg could now run races in "yada yada version 56 shoes that made him feel no pain and he could now run faster than ever". Magazine is a joke. Should have known it was going downhill when they moved their forums to a facebook chat. Save your money.
The good articles and training tips they used to have in the magazine are now on their website and print purchasers have to pay to see the website material even though they are subscribed to the magazine.
What a disappointment. I just cancelled my subscription as I don’t even trust the reviews of the products (which are 90% of the magazine) because I don’t feel confident in the integrity of the magazine anymore.
Too bad. Another one bites the dust.
