June 21 - July 1 Mile Guide
By Bring Back the Mile
It is this type of week at BBTM HQ that has us giddy with Mile events from coast-to-coast. Not to mention that America's current crop of great Milers will get a chance to book their ticket to London at the U.S. Olympic Track & Field - Team Trials in the international 1500 meter distance. Below we provide a complete rundown of all the upcoming races in a town near you and also highlight four male and four female athlete profiles to prep you for all the hours of NBC television coverage (courtesy Competitor Magazine) in the next week.
Most importantly though, if you're in Eugene, OR this weekend head over to the Wild Duck Cafe where Saturday has been designated Milers Night along with an unofficial meeting of the U.S. Milers Club. We'll have a big 'ol banner up where you can sign it with your name and PR. You should be there.
