This website is managed and owned by Running Rugby Limited.
Running Rugby has previously been active in the publication of magazines bearing the same title.
Running Rugby magazine was published over 30 times in the eleven year period between 1998 and the last issue in March 2009.
We are happy to be able to re-launch as an on-line resource for anyone involved in making business decisions in both codes of rugby in the UK and Ireland.
The people involved in Running Rugby:

Tim Groves - Editorial Assistant
Tim is in charge of writing and editing the editorial content on runningrugby.com. He has had work published in a variety of national newspapers, sports magazines, local newspapers and rugby websites already in his short career as a rugby journalist since completing a Masters in Journalism early in 2012. Tim is always on the lookout for interesting or original new content for RR and is always pleased to hear from anyone who may have a story or be interested in collaborating.
Dave Williams - Commercial Director
Dave met David Lawrenson over twenty years ago while trying to sell his articles on business aspects of rugby to Rugby News magazine.

Dave has run Big Bug Sports - a Rugby Union player agency, performance retailer and sponsorship consultancy - since January 2000.
