5th Avenue – New York City, NY

A bonus “track” today!  The 5th Avenue Mile is being run later today in New York, and some of the top runners in world will be competing, including over a dozen Olympians.

The start-list for the pro races was release on Thursday.  Here is the official press release.  For the men, we have Bernard Lagat, Leo Manzano, Matt Centrowitz, and David Torrance among the names that stand out.  Team USA steeplechaser Donn Cabral will also race.  The Heath brothers, Elliott and Garrett, from Winona, MN are entered, as well as former Wisconsin Badger Craig Miller.  Lagat won last year’s race.

On the women’s side, defending champ Jenny Simpson in running, along with Shannon Rowbury and Hannah England.  Brenda Martinez and Anna Pierce are entered also.  Two members of Team USA-Minnesota will also be in the race, and I expect to them to definitely be in the mix when it comes down to the finish.  Heather Kampf is undefeated in road mile races this summer, including winning the USA road mile national championship in Minneapolis.  And Gabe Anderson, who finished 4th at the Olympic trials and has been running even faster since, will be very strong.

The women’s race is scheduled to start at 12:45pm, with the men at 1:00pm EST.
