Official 2019 Fifth Avenue Mile Thread: Jenny Simpson wins 8th title in event record 4:16.1
Simpson and Elle Purrier were stride for stride for most of the second half of the race, but Simpson edged ahead just before the line and won in 4:16.1.
The one thing Simpson didn't have before today at Fifth Ave was the event record of 4:16.68, which dated back to 1990 by PattieSue Plumer. Now Simpson has that too, as well as a record 8 victories (no other woman has more than two). Purrier looked great as well, she clocked 4:16.2
"It really feels like the ownership of this strip of Fifth Avenue belongs to me," Simpson told Lewis Johnson after the race. Can't argue with that.
