Event Championships & Age Group Awards

Collegiate Running Association 10k Road Race National Championships

The Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k will again host the Collegiate Running Association 10k Road Race National Championships on April 1, 2017.

The only requirement for those interested in competing in the Collegiate Running Association 10k Road Race National Championship is that the participant must be enrolled in at least one college course at any level at the time of the event. This requirement will provide the first opportunity for a true collegiate national championship that transcends all college levels.

Top finishers in these national championships will earn prize money. A new NCAA rule that took effect in August 2013 allows current Division I student-athletes to accept prize money equal to the necessary expenses for competing in the sport through an entire calendar year — so long as they are able to present receipts for the expenses to a compliance officer upon request. Postgraduates and students without remaining NCAA eligibility don’t have limitations on the amount of money they can accept.
