As crazy as it might sound, some of our favorite actors like Bill Cosby, Robin Williams and Dana Carvey along with legendary musicians like Bob Seger and Alice Cooper, all had a passion for track and field as a kid. The same goes for comedian Dana Carvey, singer Sheryl Crow, actor Luke Wilson and actress Gabrielle Union, each of which participated in track while in school.
Many of these famous people who ran track in high school continue to run as adults. "Community" actor Danny Pudi has been recognized for his love of running while rapper and entertainment mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs recently completed a marathon to raise money for charity.
Not all of these celebrities who ran track in school are still in shape to run now but at one point in time running was their thing. Want more celebrity athletes? Check out the celebrities who played basketball in high school too!
