The Long Distance Log was a monthly publication that carried the complete results of nearly every road race held in the USA as well as some track races and important international races. In addition it carried editorials by Ross, letters to the editor, minutes of the RRCA as well as RRC chapters, relevant magazine articles and other items of interest to long distance runners. The Log first appeared in 1956 and ended in 1975.
