How it all started:

In the Spring Semester of 2014, founders Nicole Milani (CAS '16)

and Jillian Rosati (CFA '16) wanted to run in a team environment

but found that there was no Club Cross Country or Club Track

team on campus. The two had been meeting up to run together

multiple times a week and during these runs, they both admitted

to missing training with a group of like-minded people towards

the goal of being the best they can be. 

They met with the Club Sports Office to find out that there was a

long waitlist for other proposed club sports due to insufficient

funding. However, they were reminded that no one is stopping them

from gathering a group of people, signing up for races together, and

wearing Boston across their chests. And that's just what they did.

That night, they made a Facebook page called Boston University

Club Cross Country and Track, set up a practice schedule, made a

registration form, and the rest is history.

Today, BU Running Club has an executive board comprised of team members who have been democratically voted into their positions to ensure that all team members' voices are heard and that the club is organized and functioning at its highest capacity.

What we've been up to:

Since its founding, competitive members of the club have raced within the greater Boston area and as far as Lexington, Kentucky, and the club has seen an exponential growth in both membership and participation.  Please check out below in our years in review for more information about the team’s progress:
