A sad day for distance running.  Ted Corbitt has died.  I have sent this article to many in the UC running community since he was a UC grad , even though he was not all that well treated while competing for the Bearcats.  (more)

This is such a great idea! I would love to use this site as a resource for us to keep updated with former track athletes.Thank you for informing me of this great resource.

08-20-04 George Brose I want to recommend a great new track book called "The Perfect Mile" by Neal Bascomb. It details the quest for the 4 minute mile by Bannister, Landy, and Santee which will be particularly intersting to those of us who were present in those times and saw Santee run and had that great rivalry with Bill Easton at Kansas. This book is currently being made into a feature film such as was Seabiscuit last year.
