We are introducing a mile race (not 1600 like the other heats) for both men and women in this year's edition of the race. This is a great opportunity to get a standard for USA's, break 4 minutes (men) or 4.35 (women) in a great city with an amazing field. We hope you'll join us!

Winning the race will net you some pretty good compensation as we have substantially increased our prize purse! If you have any history of doping or being associated with doping, we will not consider your application. Interested in learning more about our compensation, field, and more about our race? Send an email to Paras at with your name and PR and he will get in touch with you ASAP.

We have very strict guidelines on the types of entrants we are accepting and will do a thorough review of all athletes. We are providing an opportunity to run fast and inspire the next generation of runners.
