To improve compliance with Title IX federal requirements, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga will eliminate men’s track & field at the end of the current school year. Title IX requires equal opportunities for male and female athletics and the school, with a 55% female study body, is out of compliance. Womens track & field will continue. Men’s cross country participation will also be limited, according to David Blackburn, director of athletics.

“This was a very difficult decision,” Blackburn said. “You never want to cut a program, but based on our current Title IX situation and the current financial climate, it was a decision that had to be made.”

Members of the men’s track & field and cross country teams will be allowed to transfer to any NCAA Division 1 school and be immediately eligible.

By Nancy Clark, M.S, R.D.
Good grief! Are grains really all that bad for us? To listen to some runners talk, you'd think grain foods are the athlete’s demon. Often demoted to being “just carbs,” whole grains are actually a beneficial part of a sports diet. But to the detriment of many runners, grain foods – in particular, wheat -- have gotten a bad rap in the past few years. Sensationalized by books such as Wheat Belly and Grain Brain, the “wheat is bad” message has gone viral. Certainly, people who are gluten intolerant or have celiac disease need to shun wheat, but that's only 7% of the population. Readily available carbohydrates from whole wheat and other whole grains foods can help most runners fuel their muscles easily and optimally.

Their long term sponsorship agreement with the Mizuno brand was announced less than three months ago.  The appointment of Amy Begley, who many remember for her gutty run in the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials 10,000 meters, as head coach of the Atlanta Track Club was their next announcement. In this interview, Carolyn Mather, a long time journalist for Running Journal and Racing South, provided RunBlogRun with this interview.)

Over $142,000 in pledges on website so far.

By Mary Margaret McEachern

Shortly before Christmas, I awoke to the extremely upsetting news that the University of North Carolina Wilmington (“UNCW”) has decided to end all of its running programs except women’s cross country.

The announcement came from Athletic Director Jimmy Bass at the worst conceivable time – on the eve of final semester exams for student-athletes who were shocked to hear the fate of their futures. Bass named, as reasons for ending the programs, gender quota requirements, lack of funding, and inadequate facilities. These reasons are not legitimate, especially in light the extreme success of UNCW’s running programs!

david_hunter_portrait_blueshirt_180h.jpgSince we are already well into January and before most of our well-intentioned earlier-avowed resolutions for 2015 have all been broken, now is a good time to pause and offer some new year's wishes for American track & field. There are dozens of well-grounded hopes we could present. Here are 10 for consideration:

Enhanced Novelty In Event Presentation. There are moments when track & field can step out of its often-stodgy mold and be fresh and innovative.
