Anyone taken a look at the field assembled? Could be a good indication of the NCAA flat track conversions. With a few more slots open, it looks like a few more NCAA runners could get in and take a real good shot at qualifying. If someone runs 4:01.00 on this track, it converts to about 3:57.95!

From the looks of the press release, it looks like they have room for another couple of collegians. Let's hope that a few other fast collegians sign up. With the conversions, this race could rival others at the big banked and oversized tracks. I wonder who else is considering getting in this race?

That's a pretty good field for this race. Looking at their website

http://www.jdlfasttrack.com

it looks like Wesley Frazier, high school senior female, ran 4:48 for the full mile at the meet right after Christmas.

...and the rabbit is a 4:00 guy that finished 4th in the U.S. Olympic Trials in the Steeplechase last year. With a good rabbit, some fast guys, and the conversion changes that help the 200 meter flat tracks, there should be some other collegians (Va. Tech, G-Town???) that should jump into this field.

Nice! That is a sweet facility. I have been over there and would love to run there some time. They had an indoor half marathon last year. might jump in that in 2013 if they do it again. Go WS!

They have time bonuses for the pros who run under 4:00. This could be a real interesting race for all the debate about the new flat track conversions.

It is a great facility to watch a race and great track to run on. There is an all comers meet this Thursday

I ran on the track at the last All Comers meet and it felt fast. Hopefully someone can break 4!

I hear they are looking for a few more collegians to round out the field. With the conversions, it sounds like a great way for someone to qualify with the rabbit and the pros. Who do you guys think should round out the field?

All of these posts sound like the same person trying to hype this race that nobody else is paying attention to. Maybe it's the meet director trying to get people to notice his race.

Absolutely.
The truth is, even with the conversion, people should be heading to Armory, Washington and other venues WHERE THE COMPETITION IS.

That's more Morgantown than track.

I don't know who these other posters are but the meet director is setting up a fast race(with a bona fide rabbit....not a 1:57 college guy running all out) and offering prize money. Seems like that should get some publicity.

I just checked Track and Field News' website (as of the marks they received by January 14th), Wesley Frazier's 4:48 run on this track is the fastest high school mile thus far this season.

Fast track, real rabbit, prize money, and potential conversion advantages.
