Submission Guidelines

We are providing the following information to help you submit materials for publication Ultrarunning World in a suitable form. Please read several recent issues of the magazine – its free – to see the kind of articles we accept.

In addition, most UW articles are written by staff writers, correspondents and/or experts (therapists, nutritionists, etc.). Be aware we don’t publish everything we receive. We are not interested in general articles on the benefits of running, fitness and the like. We may agree with your perspective, but that is not sufficient for us to accept a submission.

Size  of the article depends on its nature but 750-1000 words should be enough for medium size stories. Epics will have to be reviewed. images are important too. Please send publication-quality photos or images in JPEG or TIFF format and text on a CD/DVD or flash drive @ 300 dpi.
We reserve the right to edit your article as we see fit and necessary. We also exercise quality control over inflammatory material and do not accpet racist, sexist or otherwise discriminatory writing, but be careful too of patronising the peoples you describe and making generalisations about characteristics that could be deemed insulting.
