In the years 1975–1981 the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) conducted national championships in cross country, overlapping in the fall of ’81 with the inaugural NCAA nationals.
Before that in ’74 a less official “invitational” championship race was run with Iowa State taking the team title led by individual champion Peg Neppel, who also won in ’75. After ’81 the AIAW ceased cross country operation as NCAA women’s programs took off.
Below you’ll find links to PDFs of results of the seven open AIAW Championships. The 1975–77 PDFs include just top-end results for both teams and individuals.
Unfortunately, the quality of the scans for some of the years (notably ’80) are less than optimal.
