RunAddicts V2 launch (+Running shoes give-away)

Interested in writing for RunAddicts.net? Get started now!

No better way to celebrate the redesign of a runner’s blog by giving away 4 pairs of running shoes!

RunAddicts is proud to announce the launch of our newly redesigned blog. Over the past weeks we’ve been working on this upgrade, and we are extremely enthusiastic about the finished design.

From good to great

We’ve made a lot of changes to the system to improve your experience.
The following few are the most obvious and helpful updates:

  • Improved search function
    Now it’s much easier to search through our archive of published articles
  • Compact article overview
    On our homepage, we’ve placed a nice overview of the latest 3 articles in each of our categories
  • Loads faster
    The previous website was slow, this one is fast! We’ve had the website running fartleks around the block and now it’s in the best shape ever.
  • Credits
    Our website will now credit all authors and photographers in the blog post
  • Direct contact
    We love user input and we’ve lowered the threshold for our readers to contact us. There’s a nice contact form at the bottom of every page! (Say hello!)

Ofcourse, there are always some changes to be made, and we rely on our readers to send in bugs, feature requests or improvement ideas.

The running shoe give-away!

This is what you all have been waiting for. We’ve had a nice chat with Judy from Spira Footwear and they are donating 4 pairs of Spira Running Shoes to RunAddicts.

Naturally, we’re not going to keep them ourselves, but launch a give-away contest since, you, our readers, are our most important asset and we want to reward you!
