The Running Institute Mile
Sunday, August 4, 8 p.m.
A world-class field, including eight sub-four-minute milers, will be attempting to run the fastest mile in the state of Michigan. The current record is 3 minutes, 55 seconds, held by former Michigan Wolverine and two-time Olympian, Kevin Sullivan.
The elite invitational is sponsored by Michigan Rehabilitation Specialists' The Running Institute, located in Ann Arbor and Northville, and organized by 2008 Olympic silver medalist in the 1500 meters and Ann Arbor resident Nick Willis. Willis will be using this race as his final tune-up for the International Associates of Athletic Federations (IAAF) World Championships in Moscow, Russia. Nick currently trains at The Running Institute with the legendary University of Michigan Ron Warhurst.
It's rare that a field of this caliber is assembled in Michigan. All are invited to witness world-class competition.
