Browning Ross's efforts changed distance running in the United States and then the world. Browning Ross was a High School National Champion Miler. He served in the Navy during World War II, and then became an NCAA Champion at Villanova University. Browning was a 2 time Olympian, a gold medal winner at the Pan Am Games and an 8 time US National Champion runner who won hundreds of races. Then his contributions to American distance running really started. He founded the Road Runners Club of America which led to the running boom in the 1970's. He started the first national running magazine, the Long Distance Log and he directed thousands of races.
He also coached the US International Cross-Country team and was a successful high school and college coach.
Browning Ross overcame resistance in his attempt to change running for the better. His efforts provided more opportunities for all runners that are enjoyed today.
He did it all with a humility and sense of humor that make for a fascinating true story.
