Director of Men's and Women's Cross Country and Track
Pete Colaizzo (Marist '86) is in his 26th year as head coach of the cross country and track and field programs at Marist College. Since taking over the program during the winter of 1991, Colaizzo has overseen the complete transformation of the Running Red Foxes. When Colaizzo began in January of 1991, there were four active runners taking part in the club sport of track and field. He marshaled the transition back to NCAA Division I intercollegiate competition for all three seasons. Marist has fielded intercollegiate cross country teams since 1963, while track alternated between club and varsity status from 1963-1991, before becoming a full three-season endeavor in 1991.
