Abstract: The author studied the survival conditions of track and field in college physical education curriculum re-form, and revealed the following findings: the status of track and field in college physical education declined, the curriculum was not attractive, the percentage of students selecting track and field courses was kind of low; people had a certain bias on the recognition of track and field textbooks, the core value of the track and field curriculum had not been embodied. Therefore, from the perspectives of sociology, pedagogy, psychology, and science of envi-ronment and health, the author performed a multi-perspective analysis on causes for the “status declination” of the track and field curriculum, correspondingly expatiated on such “sequelas” as student constitution deterioration, sports capacity degeneration and sports spirit attenuation caused by track and field curriculum marginalization. Lastly, the author probed into ways for college track and field to get out of the dilemma.
