The Paul Short Run is in honor of the late Paul Short who was Lehigh’s Business Manager of Athletics and a cross country enthusiast. Lehigh coach John Covert organized the event for the first time in 1969 when seven men’s teams competed. Women competed for the first time in 1981, as six teams participated. Villanova, Penn State, Michigan State and Georgetown are the only men’s teams to win consecutive championships. Penn State won in 1979, 1980 and 1981, Michigan State earned victories in 1997 and 1998, Georgetown prevailed in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2010 and Villanova won two men’s titles in 2006 and 2007. Six women’s teams have accomplished the feat: Penn State (1981 and 1982, 2001 and 2002), Georgetown (1989 and 1990), Villanova (1991, 1992, and 1993), Providence (1994, 1995), Princeton (2006 and 2007) and West Virginia (2008 and 2009).

Born in Hurt, Virginia, in July 1910, Paul E. Short graduated from Belleville High School in Belleville, New Jersey, where he was an outstanding football player before enrolling at Lehigh University in 1930.
At Lehigh, he earned three varsity letters in football as the starting quarterback and captained the team in 1932 and 1933. Paul played both offense and defense and started as a broken field runner and punter. According to accounts by many, Paul Short was an outstanding athlete at Lehigh who also participated in lacrosse and wrestling. He was chosen as the outstanding Lehigh football player of the 1930’s and 1940’s during the celebration of 100 years of football at Lehigh. He was also a member of both Beta Theta Pi, national social fraternity, and Omicron Delta Kappa, national leadership honorary, as well as the ROTC program.
After his graduation in 1934 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, he worked for Dravo Corporation and Bethlehem Steel before joining the Lehigh Athletic Staff in 1938. His service to the University was interrupted during World War II, at which time he served with distinction as Major in the United States Army. He retired from the U.S. Army Reserve in 1961 with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Paul Short combined duties as an assistant coach in football, baseball, wrestling, and lacrosse, as well as Business Manager and Assistant Director of Athletics, from 1946 until his death.
It is well noted that throughout his career at Lehigh, both as a student and colleague, he was professional, efficient, and thorough in whatever assignments came his way, both on and off the field of play. He was an avid supporter of Lehigh’s track and cross country programs. Paul E. Short passed away on November 17, 1967 at the age of 57.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Lehigh University would like to welcome you to the 2013 Paul Short Run, presented by Brooks. For 40 years, the university and its cross country programs have been proud to host this event and the more than 5,000 runners who compete in it. This year, more than 450 colleges and high schools will compete on the Goodman Campus in races throughout the morning and afternoon.
For your convenience, bathrooms will be located in the stadium. For the safety of all fans and student-athletes at the race today, smoking and consumption of alcoholic beverages are not permitted near the race area.
Complete results for the 40th-annual Brooks-Paul Short Run at Lehigh University will be available online at Lehighsports.com. In depth information regarding the race and full results will be available online at www.paulshortxcrun.com.
For the tenth year, the ChampionChip System will assist in keeping track of times. Each runner will have a computer chip on his/her shoe that will transmit an identification number and the runner’s time to the finish-line computers. The mats placed along the finish line contain antennas to which the identification number is set to. In this year’s race, runners in the college races and the high school competitors will each have one chip. The ChampionChip system was first introduced in The Netherlands in 1994 and was first commercially used in the 1994 Berlin Marathon. Since its inception, the ChampionChip has been used in many events including the prestigious Boston Marathon and the Ironman Triathlon.
As a reminder, the NCAA and Lehigh promote good sportsmanship by student-athletes, coaches and spectators. We request your cooperation by supporting the participants and officials in a positive manner. Profanity, racial, sexist or other abusive comments or actions directed at officials, student-athletes, coaches or team representatives will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal.
Thank you for your attendance, and we hope you enjoy today’s races.
