Northwest Runner Report:Martin Rudow

December issue of Northwest Runner will be on glossy stock and there will be more color.A direct mail campaign is being carried out.A discount on event entry fees on CNW sponsored events was discussed for new subscribers.The increase in printing costs will mean that CNW may not receive any revenue from the magazine for several months, but the changes should pay off in more product sales and subscriptions that would more than make up for this revenue in the long run.Martin will be looking for folks to help with the Seattle Marathon expo.
