ARLINGTON, Va. – The DC Road Runners 1 Mile Track Championships will be the host of the 2013 RRCA National 1 Mile Championship. The event is the 9th stop on the inaugural Bring Back the Mile Tour, and the RRCA is a partner of the Bring Back the Mile national campaign to elevate and celebrate the iconic distance.
