Any interference or problems with running wires alongside support I-beams?

We are in the process of building a house. There will be a theater in the basement and I'm mapping out wiring. The easiest run from front to back (speaker wire, coax for subs, HDMI) would be right in the channel alongside a support I-beam.

Has anyone run wire like that before? Any downsides? I can drill holes and run it through the joists instead, just thought this would be easier (plus have the benefit of being able to easily pull additional wire if needed).

Thanks!

Thank you. That was my first thought as well, but with enough uncertainty to drive me to ask anyway.
