I had a chat this week with Layth Yousif, the new Sports Editor at the Comet. He gave me some great pointers on how he is looking to attract more readers to his pages.
The key point for us is that we have a much better chance of coverage if we give him 'colour' rather than lists of results. So do please keep posting your results on a Sunday, but also include a line or two about how the race was for you. Did you nearly drop out after the first lap? Were the conditions worse than ever before? Did you finally get that PB you have been chasing for X years?
If you can supply a photo as well (you can post on our Flickr site or on Facebook) then even better. Layth said photos and quotes will really help him give our material some prominence
We will still be sending in a list of results, but they will probably appear in the online edition only.
So - please give our team of writers as much 'human interest' as possible. Thank you!
