The Athletic Association today announced coaching changes to the High Performance team. Ricardo Santos, head coach of the High Performance team since February of 2018, has accepted a position as distance running coach at Stanford University, and will begin his new position in September. Morgan Uceny, a 2012 Olympian at 1,500-meters, has been named interim head coach of the High Performance team as the organization begins a search for the next coach.
Under Santos, members of the High Performance team raced to a national title at the USATF 15K championships; earned podium finishes at USATF Championships on the roads and in indoor track; and spots on Team USA rosters for the Pan-American Games and IAAF World Half Marathon Championships.

In preparation for the 2020 Marathon, implemented the same registration process for qualified runners as used in recent years, allowing the fastest qualifiers to register first.
