Rodale to Fold Running Times

The race is over.

running_times.2452Rodale is folding Running Times magazine. The January/February issue will be its final publication.

Rodale, which also owns Runner’s World, will use the title to pick up some of the slack left by Running Times’s end.

According to the New York Post, Running Times editor in chief Jonathan Beverly, who also served as Runner’s World shoe editor, will continue in that role. The same goes for Running Times publisher Molly O’Keefe, who already served double duty as Runner’s World publisher.

A Rodale spokesperson told the Post the decision to shutter Running Times was “made as part of our efforts to ensure that we are focused and aligned for continued growth as a company.”

Running Times was founded in 1977. It was purchased by Rodale in 2007.
