WHAT IS THE STRIDE REPORT?
The Stride Report (or TSR) is a media platform founded in March of 2017 that is dedicated to the coverage of cross country and track & field. By providing analytical articles, features, rankings, predictions, recaps, news and statistical breakdowns, we hope to show that competitive racing can be so much more than just times.
In December of 2021, The Stride Report was acquired by a Canadian company called Streamline Athletes.
Streamline Athletes is the only data-driven recruiting platform purpose-built for track and field/cross-country. The platform democratizes access to college education and sport for student-athletes, while also allowing college teams to recruit better athletes more seamlessly and affordably than ever before.
Streamline Athletes has allowed site admins to enter a full-time role with TSR and they have further rewarded TSR writers for their consistent production of articles. Streamline Athletes continues to heavily invest resources into The Stride Report and have pushed to create a self-sustaining structure that benefits our readers over the long-term.
What AREAS DO YOU COVER?
We have greatly expanded our coverage since 2017. We currently cover men's and women's Division One, Division Two, and Division Three competition. We have also begun to further strengthen our presence in the collegiate running community by offering recruiting news and and analysis. In the past, we have had contributors who covered NAIA.
Because our site is so young and operating with limited capital, we can only cover so many aspects of our sport at the moment. However, over time, we hope to expand our focus to both men and women at all collegiate levels (D1, D2, D3, NAIA, JUCO, High School, etc).
What Inspired The Creation OF TSR?
The running community has always been underrepresented in the sports world. Despite excellent coverage by separate media outlets, there was still a lack of relevant analysis and meaningful content.
We took notice.
After reading through The Athletic, The Ringer and FiveThirtyEight.com, there was a realization that nothing like that existed for cross country and track & field. This led to months of designing and constructing the site you are currently on.
How Often do you post articles?
As of right now, every day! On the rare occasion, we may go one day without posting content. Otherwise, you can expect to see something new on The Stride Report, daily.

What is it like to Advertise with TSR?
TSR's focus on collegiate distance running allows us to capture and maintain a diverse audience with similar needs and interests. Our readers range from high schoolers who just started running, to NCAA champions, to Olympians. We even have plenty of parents, coaches, teams, and professional runners reading our site.
Simply put, our audience covers the entire distance running spectrum.
Some sites generate traffic by utilizing live streams. Others use discussion/forum-type platforms. The rest typically just generate news. However, at The Stride Report, we are producing analytical articles, rankings, and projection tools with detail and explanation that no other site has.
We are changing the way we talk about our sport.
