The field size is limited to 12 individuals, all of whom will either have a prior sub-4:00 Mile to their credit, or be on the cusp of breaking the illusive barrier.

JDL Fast Track has set aside more than $4000 in potential prize money to professionals for this USATF‐sanctioned event. Additionally, JDL Fast Track has additional funds available to set up hotel and airfare reservations for select individuals.

Prizes will be available if the winning time is faster than 4:05.00. If this occurs, the prize breakdown will be as follows:

  • 1st Place Professional: $1500
  • 2nd Place Professional: $750
  • 3rd Place Professional: $375

Additional time bonuses of $500 will be paid to any of the top three professionals who break 4:00.00.

JDL Fast Track Bringing Back the Mile (and Bringing the Talent)

January 19, 2013

By NCRunners

First, the were elite high school Mile races at the NCRunners Elite Holiday Invitational.  Next comes the Camel City Indoor Mile, scheduled for February 2nd as part of the Hilton Garden Invitational.  Is this an intentional pattern of running the Mile instead of the 1600 meters at the JDL Fast Track, or is it just a novelty?  According to Craig Longhurst, the director of the facility, the use of the classic English and American race distance is no accident.  In addition to bringing top-notch talent to the JDL, Longhurst feels some affinity for the "Bring Back the Mile" movement, which is growing in strength across the country.
