Organized by: Kinsey Reed

THE STORY:

After the cutting of the 98 year old WVU Men's Track & Field program in the spring of 2003, and the increasing high level of talent needed to get onto the women's team (not a bad thing), there hasn't been a place where general students, both graduate and undergraduate, could compete competitively in a team setting and accomplish their track goals. The WVU Running club was founded several years ago but only recently has opened the doors to allow students the option to compete in both Track & Field and Cross Country. We welcome all types of runners, throwers, jumpers, sprinters, and more. Our mission is to create a space for these stranded athletes to pursue their interest in T&F here at WVU and form lasting friendships and healthy habits. We will compete through the National Intercollegiate Running Club Association which has meets, regionals, as well as national championships. All of us are very excited at the hard work so many people have done to establish this organization that has grown to include over 100 member clubs! We want WVU to be an active part of this organization. The problem lies in the expense related to the sport. The university provides us minimal funds as they have to spread out what they have between all of the club sports, and as we are just getting started we are low priority. The costs of uniforms, equipment, travel, and meet entry fees are approaching us very quickly and we can't do it without help from those in the community. So if you can give anything, know that it goes directly to establishing this program, and we are extremely grateful. Also... we'll compete against the PITT team, for some good ol'fashion backyard brawlin'.
