"Well, it's finally come to pass. CoolRunning will close at the end of December. This decision reflects the declining number of people posting in the forums; increased hosting costs; worsening exchange rate; and decrease in Google's advertising returns. At its peak, it was hardly possible to go to a race without seeing runners in CR caps, shorts or t-shirts. These sightings often got a mention, and even sighting another CoolRunner outside of a racing context was worthy of a mention.And who can forget the glorious wars that went on, and on, and on, and on? Characters such as Colin, Ronnie, Bellthorpe and others. There wasn't much moderation, but sometimes the protagonists did end up in the sin bin for a while. Unfortunately, there has been more moderation in the last couple of years, as a small number of bigots decided to make CR an unpleasant place for others, some of whom left permanently. Kevin Tiller was of course the mainstay of CR for an amazingly long time. It's due to Kevin that the site grew into the massive resource and community that it did. You can read the full history of CoolRunning here.Every time I run I still wear my CR cap, and often hope that I might once again hear or offer a hearty "Hey, CoolRunner" on the path or trail".
