NEW ORLEANS –After three weeks of cross country teams hitting the trails in 2014, the first regular season Regional Team Rankings for NCAA Division I are in as the top two men’s and women’s teams in all nine regions remained unchanged from the preseason. This homeostasis in the rankings released Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) comes as no surprise as many top teams have held out or held back their best runners until races begin counting for at-large consideration on Friday, Se...

What Might Have Been If Pro Circuit Deal Was Closed

--With almost four decades of experience as a writer, broadcaster and color commentator, Toni Reavis is one of the most respected voices in track and field. He will share his opinions and knowledge with you in a new monthly column on Flotrack. One of my old friends from Boston was out in San Diego recently visiting his son. During his stay we ended up chasing down a few beers while reminiscing about our days of yore when something akin to a harmonic convergence placed Boston at the epicenter of the first running boom. I dug out some old notes f...

Jepkoech, Takele Win Usti nad Labem Half

Courtesy of RunCzech Adugna Takele of Ethiopia and Correti Jepkoech of Kenya took top honors at the Mattoni Usti nad Labem Half Marathon despite strong rain and slippery streets. Their winning times of 1:00:45 and 1:09:35 respectively were only seconds over the race records (1:00:38 and 1:09:07) despite the very trying conditions. Rain at the start made the streets difficult to negotiate the many turns on the course and several times runners in the lead pack almost fell. Even stronger rainfall later as the men approached the fifteen kilometer s...

Two of the top American middle distance stars will meet Saturday afternoon for a stroll along Central Park. Except it won’t be a stroll.  When Jenny Simpson and Mary Cain toed the line at the USATF Outdoor Track and Field Championships in the finals of the 1500m, Simpson was victorious, winning by almost 2 full seconds. But let’s not forget Cain’s 2014 indoor season, where she won a USATF indoor title and recorded several record-breaking performances. Now, Simpson holds a Diamond League title. Cain, a World Junior victor...

By: Scott Olberding In November of 2013, the University of Colorado men’s cross country team defeated the field in Terre Haute by scoring 149 points, beating second place Northern Arizona by 20. Nine months later, the Buffs are atop Flotrack's Saucony Flo50 Rankings. All of the ensuing pre-season discussion begs the question: how often does the former year’s champion actually win the following National Championship?   Based on information gathered dating back to 1961, the defending champion has repeated as #1 a total of 20 tim...
