Write a running guest post
We often get asked if we accept guest posts submissions, and of course, we do as we love to read different peoples views and think our readers do too.
The difference in submitting an article and writing a guest post is for the latter we will promote you as the author, giving you great exposure to a larger audience. If popular you could become a regular contributor, and be paid for submissions.
If you are interested in submitting a guest post, please contact us at [email protected]
But before you contact us for either, it’s important you read the house rules.
Length: A minimum of 300 words. We may split articles longer than 1500.
Paragraphs: Divide your content into clear paragraphs to make it easier for users to read.
Links: These can be included if relevant but we will not link out to any sites that breach google policy.
Media: We recommend you include media such as images, videos, maps, tweets etc in your post. But these must be subject to copyright laws
Guest posts content we like
Our readers come here for running news, so they’re looking for articles that are interesting and different but full of useful information and tips.
Guest posts we don’t like
We don’t like guest posts that are promotional that look and read like ads. By all means, talk about products that you love, but this is not advertising space. You can choose to advertise with us if that’s what you want to do. Also, please respect other writers work and make sure the content is unique and not just copied from others. We also insist the articles are in English and well written.
What we need
We’ll create you a profile which needs a bio and social media links. A nice photo of yourself will help our readers get to know you.
All articles should be of your own creation. Of course, you can get inspiration from other sources, but please be mindful of copyright laws. Our readers want interesting and engaging content, not re-hashes of other peoples work.
We’re a running site, so that’s what our audience is interested in reading about.
All articles must be factual and not incite or defame. We may reject or edit articles if we have concerns.
