"NYRR On the Run" is Set to Debut

September 25, 2012 at 11:00pm EST | by Barbara Huebner, NYRR News Service

NYRR On the Run, a weekly running lifestyle show, will make its debut on Wednesday night, September 26.

Created and produced by New York Road Runners in conjunction with the video production firm Starr Media Designs, the web show will air at 8:00 p.m. EDT every Wednesday night through the weeks preceding the ING New York City Marathon on November 4. NYRR On the Run then expands its coverage during race week, with the show offered Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at 8:00 p.m., Saturday at 4:00 p.m., and again Monday, for a special Marathon wrap-up, at 8:00 p.m.

Each webisode, hosted by journalist Karla Bruning, will feature behind-the-scenes stories of pro athletes, local stars, and charity runners, as well as features on community running programs, a report on the state of the running industry, and coaching and training tips. A related podcast, focusing on an in-depth interview with a pro athlete, will offer added depth.

Both the show and the podcast can be accessed at ontherun.nyrr.org.

The debut webisode on Wednesday will be highlighted by a recap of Saturday’s NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile Presented by Nissan; a look at 73-year-old Sid Howard, who has run the Fifth Avenue Mile every year since it began; a feature on One Spirit Running, a trio of Native Americans who will be running the ING New York City Marathon to raise money for a community center; and a trip to Minnesota to visit with pro athlete Gabriele Anderson, a top U.S. miler who at 26 has already twice fought cancer. This week’s podcast will offer an extended conversation with Anderson.

Future shows will include interviews with Meb Keflezighi, Kara Goucher, and Shalane Flanagan, and training tips from Matt Tegenkamp. In addition, special guests will debate some of the hot-button issues in the sport.

After its initial airing, each show and podcast will also be available on demand.
