The purpose of this IQP was to assess the nutritional knowledge and dietary habits of college cross-country runners. Participants from NCAA varsity cross-country programs across the United States completed a nutritional questionnaire, and a population of WPI runners completed dietary and exercise logs. Findings indicated athletes to be lacking in nutritional knowledge, and even athletes with sufficient nutritional knowledge did not adhere to these guidelines. This research was presented for publication in the United States Sports Academy's The Sport Journal.
