RE: Why was distance running so popular in the 70s (or 80s)? Was it more popular than football?
Don't forget that the high school aged population was much higher in the 70s than in the late 80s and 90s. It just reached the early 70s peak a year or two ago. Sort of corresponding to the recent "improvement" in distance running.
