Chris Chavez

I am a writer and editor at Sports Illustrated since 2015. Got to cover the Rio Olympics for them in 2016, which was a dream come true. I primarily write and report on track and field, marathons and the Olympics. When I’m not doing that for SI, I’m the breaking news team editor for, where I help dictate the day-to-day coverage on what top stories we need to hit.

For most of my running commentary, I started CITIUS MAG in 2017 with some friends from the running community. I host a weekly podcast where similar to you I chat with some of the top runners, coaches and figures from the running community. It’s been fun! So in addition to the CITIUS MAG Podcast, I co-host the Runners of NYC Podcast and then also produce two other shows for the site. Love podcasting!

And then on top of that, I’m still chasing PRs. I run with the Brooklyn Track Club in New York City and I’m gunning for a sub-three hour marathon next year in Chicago. Just notched a PR of 3:06 in Berlin.
