The Runaround – 10/8/2012

What were the highlights of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon? Course record shattered and a big PR from an American seeking to establish himself as one of the best marathoners in the world. 

And…another men’s track team is on the chopping block??

First University of Maryland, then Millersville University, now the University of Richmond. Hear from Richmond distance runners Andrew Valenski, Matthew Groff and Assistant Coach Jon Molz as they share how they plan on battling an untimely demise. Former Richmond standout Andrew Benford, who, along with Matt Llano, led the Spiders to their first NCAA berth in 2010, talked to us about what the alumni are doing to fight the cuts.

What’s so interesting about the situation at Richmond?

The school is proposing to cut men’s track and field AND soccer to CREATE a lacrosse team at the varsity level.
