Colorado's Mark Wetmore commented on the men's and women's runner-up finishes at the 2015 NCAA Championships. When the men found out they did not achieve the "3-peat", Wetmore told his athletes to go shake Syracuse's hands. Though they fell short of their goals, Wetmore thinks the future is bright for this young women's team and hopes the men who will fill the gaps next year will be more hungry than ever.

Mark Wetmore is currently in his 12th coaching season at the University of Colorado. During his tenure at CU Wetmore has produced some of America's finest distance runners including Alan and Shayne Culpepper, Adam and Kara Goucher, Jorge Torres, and Dathan Ritzenhein.

In 1991 Mark Wetmore left the east coast with aspirations of creating a post collegiate running club. After stopping in Boulder, Wetmore found the small mountain town appealing. He began working full-time and coaching whoever he could in his spare time.

Coach Wetmore initially began his Colorado coaching career as a volunteer assistant in 1992. In 1994 Coach Wetmore was given a part-time position coaching the men's middle distance group. In 1996 He was promoted to head coach of cross country/track and field. Prior to coaching at Colorado Coach Wetmore was the assistant track coach at Seton Hall from 1988-1991.

During Wetmore's time as Head Coach, Colorado has seen 69 All-Americans, 15 conference champions, and 13 regional champions. Currently Wetmore has 16 of his former athletes competing as post-collegians.
