About Level Renner

Who is the Level Renner? What is the Level Renner? We are a digital magazine. We are a website. We are a platform for runners. We are the Level Renner. You are the Level Renner. Magazine 6 times per year. Website daily.

Our mission: To stifle the wussification of America by promoting all of the good work that runners do both on and off the roads. Our tagline: run on the ground. read the underground.

For those of you who prefer running to couches and recreational drugs, welcome to the underground.  Here’s the deal: Level Renner is a journal of (new england) running for the olde school literary athlete.  Why olde school?  Because olde school has taken on the connotation of commitment, perseverance, and sedulity.  Why literary?  Because fast runners have quick wit; we’re wicked smaht.  We pick up on sarcasm and can interpret irony.  And why is it Level Renner and not Runner?  Well, we’re not giving up that one just yet.  You’ll have to dig a little deeper into the underground to find the answer to that.
