    Where to find endurance sports writers?

    Do you know of any content writers or sites with writers of endurance sports?

    I'm looking for swimming, biking, and running (triathlon) writers. Suggestions?

    Maybe you can hangout on some fitness forums and see if you can find someone willing to write about what they do.

    I would also say sport forums - explicitely ask for former couches, gym teachers...and others who are active in some sport - go through their posts to get an idea who can be a good writer.

    Both great ideas.

    I'd have to be careful about posting such requests though, since it can be seriously frowned upon by their moderators.

    fitness forums, but you can also post on digital point... offer a price for your articles and how they should be written and i'm sure you'll find 2-3 people perfect for your job

    SEO forums like Digital Point (mentioned above) or freelance writing forums would be a good place to look. There are lots of article writers who specialize in researching a topic and writing about it, so you don't necessarily have to look for someone who's already an expert on endurance sports.

    Yeah, the problem with SEO forums like DP is you usually get other webmasters who are trying to make some extra cash, not serious article writers.

    Try searching for "freelance writing forums" and see if any of those have job posting sections. There are a lot of stay-at-home moms on those sites who like to write and have no clue about creating their own sites and making money from ads. I started my online "career" submitting articles for $10-15 each on those kind of sites before I discovered SEO/Adsense.
