Making the Most of Your Mile: College Avenue Mile

June 6, 2013

The College Avenue Mile is put on by the Garden State Track Club (GSTC) and takes place on Saturday night, June 8, in New Brunswick, NJ. In its second year, this great community centric event will host for the first time the Royal Rumble One-Mile and Two-Mile Relays along with a family friendly heptathlon, which includes a dunk tank, tug-o-war as well as a beer and BBQ garden among other activities.

BBTM sat down with Club President, Chuck Schneekloth, who spends his days as an English teacher and Track coach from Metuchen, to discuss this unique Mile in New Jersey and what motivates the GSTC. The New Jersey representative for the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), Chuck has master's degrees from Rutgers and UC Berkeley. As a Rutgers Scarlet Knight, he was a four-time All-Big East half-miler with personal bests of 1:52.80 for 800m and 4:18.5 in the Mile. As a track coach in Oregon for Seaside High School, he was voted into their hall of fame for being the youngest coach in the state of Oregon to have won a state title.
