Hi, I’m Jamey Harris.
I am the Head Coach of Cross Country and Track & Field for University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). Before that, back in the 90s, before blogs and Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and LinkedIn, I was faster than most people.
Now, I’m trying to provide some advice for college runners and those who want to run in college. Yes, I do hope it brings some attention to our program here at UCSC, but I also just want to help young runners find the right path for them.
I talk to a lot of high school cross country and track & field athletes who don’t have any idea what it’s like to run in college, what it takes to earn a scholarship, or how recruiting works. I hope this helps someone. I guess at the very least it will provide me with a pre-written answer to the most common questions and concerns of prospective college student-athletes.
That’s all for now. More later.
