METER:THE RUNNER’S REVIEW is the quarterly print magazine published by Tracksmith, the relatively new but old school running apparel brand. The line takes its inspiration from the classic running styles of the 1970’s, and combines the look with modern performance fabrics.
Like Tracksmith, METER celebrates the culture and heritage of competitive running. With authenticity and simplicity, the photography and design presents the grace, intensity, and beauty of competitive running at its humblest, and the stories pay homage to its fabled athletes and races. Says Matt Taylor, CEO and Co-Founder of Tracksmith, “METER gives us an opportunity to explore the edges of running culture while also celebrating the history and traditions that make it the greatest and most accessible sport in the world. There’s no other place to get these types of stories.”

Available in single issue or subscription, the publications’s fourth issue is now available at Tracksmith.com. It is relay themed, with features such as: “The Women of the Penn Relays”, about the oldest track meet in the world and one at which women were not always welcome; “Izumo Ekiden”, one of Japan’s hugely popular road relays; and “Hood to Coast”, a 198-mile relay that starts halfway up Oregon’s Mt.Hood and finishes in the coastal town of Seaside.

Originally published in a large tabloid size, METER is now produced in a much smaller journal format. It is perfect bound, with a collector’s item feel that’s sure to appeal to any magazine aficionado, and beautifully designed to make the insider stories of the sport appeal to both runners and non-runners alike.
