June 15 Midwest Distance Gala to Provide Qualifying Chance for Steeplechasers
by: Midwest Distance Gala
May 14, 2008

Chicago, IL – The staff of the Midwest Distance Gala is proud to once again announce the addition of a men’s professional steeplechase.  This year’s 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 year’s field. 

Similar to last year’s 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. 

For further information please visit the Midwest Distance Gala website at www.midwestdistancegala.com or visit the MDG Blog at http://gala.tumblr.com.  For questions or comments on the professional steeplechase please contact professional athlete coordinator Scott Bush at scott@midwestdistancegala.com or 847.202.9195.
