The Virginia men’s cross country and track & field programs have had recent success since the arrival of Bryan Fetzer as director of track & field/cross country in January of 2012. The Cavalier men finished a program-best tied for eighth at the 2016 NCAA Indoor Championships, which included an NCAA individual title by junior Henry Wynne in the mile. UVA followed up with a program-best seventh-place finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, highlighted by junior Filip Mihaljevic winning the shot put national title. The Cavaliers finished fifth in the USTFCCCA Program of the Year standings for the second-consecutive year.

The Cavaliers have benefited from Lannigan Field’s renovation in 2012 which has allowed them to host the ACC Outdoor Track and Field Championships in 2012 and enabled the Virginia Challenge to become one of the top meets in the nation, attracting elite teams and Olympians each year. Panorama Farms, in Earlysville, gives Virginia one of the best cross country facilities in the country. The course was home to the 2013 and 2015 NCAA Southeast Regionals and the 2014 ACC Championships, and will host the regional meet again in 2016 and 2017.
Donations to the Virginia Athletics Foundation directed to Friends Of Cross Country and Track & Field provide operational and scholarship support for the program.
