Miles Unterreiner ’12 M.A. ’13 will fly on a private plane on Friday, Nov. 16, to attend both his NCAA Division I Cross Country Championship in Louisville, Ky. and his Rhodes Scholarship interview in Seattle, Wash.

The NCAA granted Stanford a waiver on the team travel rule, allowing Unterreiner to attend both commitments on time. Unterreiner accepted the private plane offer on Monday. An undisclosed donor is funding the private plane journey.

Even with the new travel accommodation, Unterreiner’s schedule will still be tight. His race is at 1:15 p.m. EST and his interview at 4 p.m. PST.

Even before he got word of the offer, Unterreiner insisted on participating in his final Stanford cross-country race.

“There’s no way I could let my teammates down and not be there when we have that chance,” Unterreiner, who is also The Stanford Daily’s managing editor of opinions, said on Nov. 5.


Update  (Nov. 17) – Unterreiner was injured at the cross country championships and was not chosen as his district’s Rhodes Scholar. 

“I wanted to say thanks to everybody who’s helped me get this far for being such supportive, great friends – and especially to my XC teammates for four years of running I’ll never forget,” he posted on Facebook on Saturday.

    The Empress of Cambridge doesn’t want a Christian scholar in England. Forget about the scholarship, Miles, your Jesus came last in the final race of the millennium.
