Editorial Guidelines

Runfitjourney.com is an independent website dedicated to providing the latest information on marathons and running, including expert tips and trends.

This editorial guideline outlines our principles of how we work. If you believe our work has not met these standards, please reach out to us at runfitjourney@gmail.com.

Our Reporting

When conveying information that may not be readily available to the public or may cast an individual or organization in a negative light, we always seek their input.

Should we receive new information post-publication, we will either update the existing article or publish a new one, as necessary and expediently as possible. Regardless of that, we go into the articles at least every three months and check them for timeliness, relevance, and helpfulness. They are also reviewed by independent experts to maintain our standard of producing the best content out there.

Upon being alerted to potential factual inaccuracies in our work, we will make efforts to verify them and issue a correction if an error is confirmed.

We extend an offer of a right to reply to anyone mentioned in a story. If you believe you or your company has been portrayed unfairly or wish to elaborate on a story, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We endeavor not to publish information received from sources (whether named or anonymous) without attempting to corroborate it through additional sources. We safeguard the identities of those who provide information anonymously. We do not offer monetary compensation to sources for their information.

When reporting on information initially brought to light by another publication, we unfailingly provide prominent attribution and link back to the original work whenever possible.

Our Professional Engagements

In our work as a website dedicated to marathons and running, we interact with running experts, publishers, and other entities in a professional manner and always maintain high standards of reporting, fairness, and analysis. Even if a company stops communicating with us, we remain committed to unbiased reporting. We respect the work of individual experts and refrain from discussing any issues publicly unless it’s necessary to maintain the integrity of our publication or release important information.

Advertising & Commercial Activities

At RunFtiJourney, we keep our editorial and advertising divisions separate. Our editors have full control over the content featured on our website and social media channels, and it’s never influenced by commercial considerations.

Our advertising team follows principles of fairness, honesty, and transparency when working with advertisers. We don’t accept ads that play audio automatically or include offensive content. If inappropriate ads appear on our website, we’ll take action to remove them. If you have concerns about the ads on our site, please let us know.

Sometimes we include links to retailers like Amazon and may receive a commission from purchases made through these links. However, these links don’t affect our editorial decisions. They only appear in articles related to the product in question and are presented in neutral language, such as “View the latest price of [this product] from Amazon.”
