April 6-7 Weekend Mile Guide

April 06, 2012

By Bring Back the Mile

We've got dueling distance classics in California with the Arcadia Invitational in SoCal and the Stanford Invitational in NorCal. But, also keep an eye out east at the Pepsi Florida Relays where U.S. Mile record holder, Alan Webb (3:46.91), will make his debut with an 800m / 1500m double this evening. U.S. Olympian Shannon Rowbury will also make her outdoor debut at 800m at the Stanford Invitational. And a BBTM high-five to the Arcadia Invite and Meet Director, Richard Gonzalez, in addition to the Mobile Challenge of Champions for running the Mile!

Ed. Note - Kudos to the Stanford Invite for running High School Miles! Girls at 9:50 AM; Boys at 10:10 AM
