Running in college is an exciting prospect and there are many options, both competitively and for fun (e.g. clubs). Coach Greg held a “Running in College” information night on 9/8/19 to discuss several topics.
- What is the right “fit” for me (academic, social, financial, and athletic)?
- What are the levels of running in college?
- Can running expand the list colleges I might qualify for?
- How does recruiting and scholarships work?
For your convenience, we’ve added several websites, documents, and follow-up contacts.
