John Walshe is also a regular contributor to the Roadrunner magazine...the journal of the Road Runners Club in the UK. This club and magazine has a bias more towards distance running as opposed to top 10 lists or the latest fad as found in the usual popular magazines.

John Walshe was for many years the Irish rep for the club although with the advent of social media, they have moved away from the concept of having regional reps.

You can find out more about the magazine and the club in this previous post from August 2014.
