Santa Barbara’s Ryan Lamppa has always thought that the Mile distance deserves more credit. Once a showcase in American sports, the Mile has gradually slipped from prominence in running competitions throughout the country.


That Dog-Gone Run

Molly the Edhat Dog breaks down her 2010 State Street Dog Mile experience

June 6, 2010

By The Edhat Dog

It's not easy being the Edhat Dog.

There's the fame that comes with being on all those splash pages, the pressure of picking the winners of important Edhat contests like March Edness. And of course, the constant training I have to do to be in shape for the annual State Street Dog Mile.

It's possible that this year I over trained for the State Street Mile. And certainly, though my carbo-loading the night before was perfect, my head wasn't in the right place before the race. Instead of staying calm and collected, I barked and pranced. I was anxious to avenge my leash-losing performance from 2009. Even though I came in first last year, my handler was left far behind.


Return the Mile to prominence on the American & worldwide sports and cultural landscape by elevating and celebrating the Mile to create a movement.

Bring Back the Mile as the premier event in the sport, and increase interest in and media coverage of the Mile for both those who love the distance as well as the general public.

Bring Back the Mile to celebrate the storied distance and to recognize the people who made and make the Mile great and to promote Mile events and the next generation of U.S. Milers.

Bring Back the Mile to create a national movement for the Mile as America’s Distance,
to inspire Americans to run the Mile as part of their fitness program and to replace the 1600 meters at High School State Track & Field Meets across the country.
