|Subject: ||Elite mile for men and women in Colorado|
Hi, My name is Jeff Boele. I know this is short notice, but I am looking to see if any men or women would be interested in running in two fast 1 mile races on Friday May 4th. I am an assistant high school coach at Lyons High School in Colorado (just north of Boulder). We co-host a large high school meet that offers elite invitational sections in some events. We have a 100, 200, 400 and pole vault in addition to the mile. We have a former Olympic gold medalist coming in the pole vault - Nick Hysong and a World Championship participant running some of the sprints- Jeremy Dodson. The 400 will feature several sub 46 second runners as well. We have a few Boulder/Denver area athletes signed up for the miles, but want to extend the invitation to any potential men and women out there who would be game for a fast race.
We have a prize structure set as well. The winner is guaranteed $200, with the potential for a $550 dollar bonus if a "Colorado soil" mile record is run. This is the case for both men and women. For the bonus, the men are chasing 4:04.86 a time that dates back to 1976. The women need to run under 4:40.
Other information that might be helpful:
- The meet is at Longmont high school. This is a great facility with a fast track. There are plenty of places to warm up and cool down without traffic.
- Longmont is located about 15 mile Northeast of Boulder, 35 miles North of Denver and 30 miles South of Ft. Collins. Access to these other cities is very easy.
- The races are scheduled for 7:30 and 7:37 PM on Friday May 4th.
- We can not offer any assistance for travel, but may be able to arrange home stays if people were willing to make the trip from out of the area.
