May 3-6 Mile Guide
By Bring Back the Mile
While the collegiate and professional Track & Field season is quiet this weekend, there's plenty on tap. Aside from the fact that it's Cinco de Mayo (shout-out to The 408k for adding one of our favorite Miles, the Mariachi Mile to their event; pictured right) it's also the 58th Anniversary of Roger Bannister's first sub-4 minute Mile. To celebrate this historic feat we've launched a contest where you can share your own piece of Mile history whether it was a personal barrier broken or an epic race you witnessed.
The weekend Mile festivities kicked off on Thursday with a Disco-themed Mile in Louisville, CO as part of the Lucky Mile Series and the Kehoe Track Classic in College Park, MD where Maryland Alumni duked it out over the storied distance,but the fun doesn't stop there.
On the west coast, The Oaks Mile in Thousand Oaks, CA will highlight the Conejo Valley Days festival on Saturday. Then on Sunday approximately 300 miles to the north, the Moreland Mile is hosted in San Jose, CA.
