When you mention legendary runners from the University of Colorado Boulder (CU), names like Jenny Barringer Simpson, Emma Coburn and Adam Goucher come up…
And, be sure to include Dani Jones on that list. Dani wrapped up her CU career with four NCAA Division I championships, including the 5,000 meter run and cross country. As a four-time champion, she joins an exclusive list as just the sixth CU Buff to win four national titles.
In 2019, Dani was First-Team All-America in the outdoor 5,000 meters and was the PAC-12 champion. She also set a personal best by running a 4:07.28 at the Prefontaine Classic in Oregon.
This is Dani Jones’ third Sportswomen of Colorado award in college running which places her in our Hall of Fame. Congratulations to one of our newest Hall of Famers!
