Three-time Olympian and former congressman Jim Ryun — the first high schooler to break the 4-minute Mile — is coming to Lancaster County next month for a series of appearances.
Ryun, who won a silver medal in the 1500 meters at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City, will give a public talk at 7:00pm Tuesday, Nov. 15, in the auditorium at Elizabethtown Area High School.
And from 7:30-8:30pm Wednesday, Nov. 16, Ryun will sign his book The Courage to Run: Inspiration for Winning the Race of Your Life at The Inside Track located in the Lancaster Shopping Center.
To help cover the cost of his visit and raise money for the Elizabethtown cross country team, a Jim Ryun Prediction Mile will be held at the high school track at 7:00pm on Sunday, Nov. 13.
When people register for the Mile, they will predict their time down to one-tenth of a second.
