The big news -- which LRC can exclusively report -- is that Edward Chesererk will be running the 7-mile race on Sunday. He has raced few times on the track this summer (including a 13:04 pb in Heusden on July 20) and this will be his first race back stateside since the Carlsbad 5000 on April 7. It will also be the longest race of his career.
He'll face Stephen Sambu, Leonard Korir, and Scott Fauble, among others.
Des Linden and Sara Hall are in the women's race. USAs third-placer Josh Thompson is in the mile on Saturday, as are Pat Casey and Riley Masters. The women's mile has Katie Mackey, Cory McGee, and Heather MacLean.
I'm pretty excited Cheserek is racing. I haven't watched him run in person since Millrose and want to know why he didn't run any Diamond Leagues this summer. Could he not get in them?
