carnival of the runners?

So I think many bloggers are familiar with these “carnival of the recipes,” “carnival of the cats,” etc. … basically a weekly roundup or showcase of the “best-of” posts on a particular topic. (There is a Catholic Carnival, a carnival for gun lovers, etc.)

I was thinking of starting one for running — basically a single place where (hopefully) one could get the best blog-posts on running for the week. There’s a lot of great writing out there that could use the exposure, and I know I find a lot of it inspirational.

Does anyone have any thoughts/suggestions/comments?

And any ideas on a better name than “carnival of the runners”?

    That’s a GREAT idea…I’ll put my thinking cap on…not that my cap has been known for creative results, but maybe we’ll get lucky. Either way, I totally support this idea of yours!

    I dunno man, but if I’m not part of this carnival, I’m going to beat you with sticks.

  • Of course you will be part Adeel. And I will be looking for help with promotion. Also, there will be rotating hosts for each week … (the host would go through submissions and write up the summary on his/her blog).

    But I’m glad people like it, will go ahead with things. Just trying to think up a less-lame name than “Carnival of the Runners” … “Carnival of the Swift”? Would that intimidate the back-of-the-pack joggers? Of course I want to include everyone.

    “Festival of the Feet”? Kinda catchy, but people might think we’re foot-fetishists (of course, I am, but that’s not what this would be about…)

    “Runners’ Roundup”? Hmm.

    I’d be into this, though titles are for sure not my forte. Running Reads? Fleet Feet… Street? Yeah, I’ll leave that part to you all.
