Published for the Health and Physical Education Council since 1962, The Runner is an annual publication that provides evidence-based information to Alberta teachers. The articles in this journal focus on emerging topics and trends within the Physical Education and Health fields and provide “classroom ready” suggestions and ideas to improve teaching practice. Contributing authors may be teachers, academics, students, or administrators with practical expertise and knowledge to share with other educators in the field. Each volume includes 8-12 submissions about current topics of interest to HPEC members and are related to the yearly HPEC conference theme. Submissions for publication are accepted until the end of August every year; are subjected to peer review and may be returned to the author for revision; and should be 2500 words or less with a reference list at the end.
