The Running Network Fall Shoe Review has been published since 1998 by its member publications. In this day and age, we deliver the print & digital version in September & October, and then provide daily social media updates in October & November and on our websites in October & November. 

The reasoning is this: to provide you, the readers of the twenty-five print and digital publications and thirty website members of the Running Network (all represented by Fortius Media Group, LLC), every chance to see the best and most up to date running product available in North America, North Africa & Northern Europe. 

As always, the Running Network reminds our readers that the way real runners purchase running footwear is to try on the shoes and receive their final advice at their local running store. Read nationally (hopefully, our reviews), and always, always, purchase your running shoes at the local running store.

If you need a daily dose of running product reviews, please go to   Running Product Reviews, the blog published by our RN Footwear Editor, Cregg Weinmann. You can find several hundred reviews there(shortly, we will have an archive of all reviews from 1998 to the present!). 

The Running Network LLC & Fortius Media Group LLC robustly supports the local running store, the apex of the local running community, around the world. 

If you would like some assistance finding a local running store, email us at info@runningnetwork.com.

Cregg Weinmann has been the shoe reviewer for the Running Network since 1998. We asked Cregg, in his chemistry lab coat, to provide us some insights into the 2014 Cross Country shoe racing options. 

We think you will enjoy it.

We asked Justin Lagat, our columnist from Kenya, to write his view of the two amazing victories in the Windy city yesterday. As Justin had interviewed both for us, he was both journalist, and he first experienced, fan. We hope you enjoy his column! 
Sebastian Coe, is heading up the Evaluation committee that will visit Doha, Barcelona and Eugene in October and November 2014.

Lord Coe was on the other side of the Evaluation for the London 2017. The following piece, written by Inside the Games' Duncan Mackay, gives a very complete view of process:

What should be said is that this is a significant role for Lord Coe, as the tenure of Lamine Diack winds down as IAAF President. Sebastian Coe and Sergey Bubka seem to be the two most prominent candidates for the next IAAF President.

The next IAAF President will find a sport in need of strong and dynamic leadership, and at a crossroads. How does the leader of the world's most popular Olympic sport lead the sport into the next few decades? How does he or she control the damage that continues to be done by the odor of drugs in our sport? How does a new President help the IAAF find new sponsors and new strategies to reach the next generation of fans and athletes?

The challenges facing the next leadership are exciting and history-making. To run a global sport, a global federation needs great communication, social media that reaches out to a younger audience, fine athletes and story-telling and sponsors, athletes, managers and events willing to invest in building a new legacy for the world's oldest sport!
