Here are the circulation rates for the three mags:
Track & Field News - 21,000
Runner's World - 670,000
New England Runner - 15,000
These are approximate and rounded figures from a quick Google search.
I suspect those are years old numbers. I am almost certain T&FN is far less than that.(I’m one of the die hards - since 1964. I think they make a lot of their money from the tour groups they take to the Olympics, World Championships, Trials, European summer big meets, etc.
Those are recent numbers, from their media kits they produce. For T&FN, another number I saw was 17,000, but used the higher one. But I do agree, that the tours must be a big revenue generator. BTW, I am a subscriber since the late 70s. Question, what do you do with your old issues?
HRE - I agree 100% about Rodale purchasing RT. Their only plan was to shut it down. Sad, I enjoyed that mag.
