Periodicals Put out the Word on Events


Byline: Dick Weisz

Three excellent periodicals showcase 1999's fitness and recreational activities. Participants, as well as event planers and directors, will find these references useful.

Competitive and non-competitive activities are included like running, walking, cross-country and downhill skiing, in-line skating, cycling, swimming, snowshoeing, and almost any, you-name-it, type of adventure or athletic endeavor.

These publications have nutritional and diet information; motivational and how-to columns; innovated products and sport and exercise equipment; training and rehab information and much more. They have large circulations, and free listings are available for race planners and directors. Paid advertising space is available.

These periodicals are available free or for a yearly subscription rate. You can get them at workout and recreational centers, gyms, park districts, libraries, and sporting and specialty stores.

The publications are listed below.

- Chicago's Amateur Athlete is published eight times a year, and it covers events from February through January of the next year. Its February edition is considered like a "Yellow Pages" listing of upcoming activities for the year. Activities are shown by date and then by type of activity.

Here's a sample of what is included in this magazine "20,000 Marathon Stories;" "Skiers Embrace the Birkebeiner;" "Adventures in the Mountains of Ecuador;" "Time for Snowshoeing;" "Running a Straight Line."

Departments include race results, nutrition, Speedplay, USA Track and Field information, event calendar, Carey's (Pinkowski) column, Hal Higdon on the Run.

If you would like an event listed, get it to Chicago's Amateur Athlete at least a month and a half before the date of the event. The earlier, the better. Send it to Chicago Sports Media Inc., 7840 N. Lincoln Ave., Suite 208, Skokie, IL 60077. …
