One Austin runner has already made it to the finals of a contest to appear on the cover of Runner’s World magazine. Now another running magazine is looking for a cover model.

Can we make it an Austin sweep?

Women’s Running is accepting submissions in its fourth annual Cover Model Contest through Sept. 21.

Finalists will be announced by Sept. 26. Readers will be invited to vote online for their favorite finalist. The winner will appear on the cover of the publication’s January/February 2017 cover.

The winning runner fly to the company’s headquarters in San Diego for a photo shoot. She’ll also receive a new running wardrobe and a Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Tour Pass.

“The goal of the annual Cover Runner Contest is to celebrate and honor all runners – it’s important to us to celebrate athletes of all abilities, backgrounds, shapes, sizes and experience levels,” Jessica Sebor, editor-in-chief of Women’s Running, said in a press release. “This contest provides the perfect opportunity to highlight the achievements of our readers.”

Past issues of Women’s Running have featured what editors call a “regular-sized runner” and a runner with autism.
