Where Your Dreams Become Reality
June 15 Midwest Distance Gala to Provide Qualifying Chance for Steeplechasers
Chicago, IL The staff of
the Midwest Distance Gala is proud to once again announce the addition
of a mens professional steeplechase. This years event, Chasing
the Olympic Dream, provides athletes with the opportunity to qualify
for the Olympic Trials or tune-up for the Olympic Trials if already
qualified. With such notable athletes as Michael Spence, Tom Chorny,
Jordan Fife and Haron Lagat competing in the 2007 edition, expectations
are incredibly high for this years field.
Similar to last years event,
rabbits will be provided to do much of the pacing work for athletes
looking to hit the Olympic Trials qualifying standard. The Midwest
Distance Gala fits in perfectly with the Olympic Trials qualifying schedule
as June 15, the day after the Gala, is the final day athletes can run
the qualifying time.
The 2008 edition of the Midwest
Distance Gala takes place on Saturday, June 14, 2008 at Benedictine
University in Lisle, Illinois. Over the past four years the Midwest
Distance Gala has provided unique opportunities for both high school
and professional athletes to compete in a competitive, athlete-friendly
environment. With considerable growth over each of the past three
previous years, the fourth annual Midwest Distance Gala looks to be
the best one yet.
