Stellar fields led by Olympic silver medalist Leo Manzano for ServiceNow West Chester Mile
Bolas & Schneider to defend race titles; the second edition and third stop on the BBTM Grand Prix Tour 2016 also offers $15,000 in Open prize money
Runners of all ability levels will converge on Henderson High School Thursday night, August 11 for the ServiceNow West Chester Mile, a celebration of barrier-breakers and Mile history makers as the 3rd stop on the Bring Back the Mile Grand Prix Tour 2016.
The second edition of this Open Mile Run in West Chester, PA looks to be a night that embraces all those that enjoy testing themselves over one of the most recognizable distances out there: a 5280 foot four lap trip around the track, covering just nine meters more than the traditional 1600m ran in PIAA high school meets. It’s allure may draw those looking to find their fitness before fall, break 8-7-6-5 minutes for the first time, or simply participate in a community event. But one thing’s for sure: this week is going to be a fun one!
Monday & Tuesday
Raffle to Have Dinner with the Milers
Through Wednesday, any purchase of Brooks products made in-store will register you for a chance to win a VIP ticket to our ‘Dinner With the Milers’ at Side Bar. There are very few occasions like these to connect with some of the top middle distance athletes in the sport at such an engaging event, and Side Bar will have a great buffet spread for all those in attendance. The opportunity to meet the nation’s best by purchasing from one of the best run specialty brands out there is a win-win, and we’re excited to see who wins!
