First and foremost please note that this race has moved from Monmouth University to Shore Regional High School. Unfortunately due to the weather leading up to the race the brand new state of the art track at Monmouth University wasn't able to complete construction in time. None the less if you are in the area this will be some quality local summer track action that no fan or athlete should miss.
There are community miles set to begin at 7:00pm and then the sub-four mile attempt at 7:45pm. Below is the full roster for the elite men's mile, not only chasing a sub-four minute run but FAST times in general. All of these athletes compete for the Hoka One One NJ*NY Track Club, and plenty of home grown New Jersey talent will be showcased.
NJ MileSplit will be in attendance to record the races, including a multi-camera presentation of the elite mile, as well as to take photos of the action. The event is being held by the Shore Running Experience with financial backing for prize money by the Howley Financial Group.
