CITIUS MAG continues to be a passion project. Whether it's through weekly podcasts, newsletters or social media posts, I'm doing my best to push out original content for you that you may not get anywhere else. While it's accessible to people all around the world and not behind a paywall, your generosity keeps me going. It allows me to know that you're in support of trying to make track and field's media coverage a bit more fun and untraditional. 

About Citius Mag

Citius Mag is creating [mostly] high-quality podcasts, articles and videos centered around the world of running. Maybe you're a washed-up college athlete. Maybe you ran track in high school. Perhaps you're 35-years old and are still grinding it out every day. Whoever you are, Citius Mag is making stuff that you'll find relatable, insightful, and maybe a little bit funny. This is our third year on the world wide web, and we have some big plans for new and exciting stuff. Your support will help us get there!

Our readers, followers, listeners and fans have spoken. We're irreverent, clever, arbitrarily ritualistic but fundamentally beholden to the principles set forth in the book 'Once a Runner' and followed by any of us who’ve given running an honest shot.

The site is spearheaded by Chris Chavez. If you've enjoyed any of our work in recent years, we ask you to please consider donating any dollar amount so that we can continue creating more content for the running community.

For a little bit of background, most of the CITIUS MAG team works full-time jobs. This has been a passion project that we've developed over the years and because people are enjoying it, we've kept it going. A daily routine tends to include a full 9-5 workday, a run in the evening, dinner and then a late-night editing session of audio or writing to post on the site and keep our audience satisfied. It's a labor or love but you keep us going.
Please keep us going.

If you're interested in a larger-scale sponsorship of the podcasts or site, please reach out to Chris Chavez at [email protected]

If you've been wondering where some of the money has gone toward:
We sent a team of writers to the Prefontaine Classic, Berlin Marathon, U.S. Outdoor Championships and New York City Marathon in 2018. In 2019, we traveled out to the Boston Marathon, Chicago Marathon, Western States and Berlin Marathon. In 2020, we had a team cover the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in Atlanta and then made a movie out of it.

We've been able to upgrade our podcast equipment to produce higher quality shows on the CITIUS MAG Podcast, Runners of NYC, Showrunners with Scott Fauble and More than Running with Dana Giordano feeds. Your help has also helped cover hosting expenses for the website and podcasts, which can stack up quickly.

CITIUS MAG's staff will treat this $1,000 like a $1,000,000 and use it to continue telling interesting and compelling stories from the running community through articles, photography, podcasts and videos.
