  • Do you have interest in writing?

    Have you ever wanted to interview people, write articles, and see your work published online? If so, I have an opportunity for you. As administrator of KYTrackXC.com, I am only one person but want the site to develop into the place everyone involved in running in Kentucky wants to use. While I am able to attend some meets, I cannot be at all of them and want as many as possible to be covered. So, if you run, coach, or just attend a meet and would like to write up a summary of the events, please send it to me at jonathan@kytrackxc.com and it might end up on the website. The same goes for articles about running, coaching, or even college recruiting. While I presently cannot offer any financial incentive, know that your contribution would be helping to promote Kentucky Track and Field/Cross Country. Several people have written articles for the website, and I thank them for their support. If you have an idea or questions, drop me an email at jonathan@kytrackxc.com.
