Bannister Mile, Tuesday May 4th

From Dave C the Bannister Mile Founder and Organizer...

As most of you know, for the last six years now we have been celebrating the
day on which Scott H paced Roger Bannister to the first sub-four
minute mile.

On Tuesday, May 4th, 2010, please join us at the Manual High School track
(28th Avenue and High Street in northeast Denver) to celebrate this
historic event. Because Manuel High has classes on the field, we cannot
start before 12:30. Those of us who run from the YMCA should plan to leave a
little bit later than usual (12:05, the time Carver normally shows up) and
should be at the track around just around 12:30. As we have for the past
five years, we will run a mile for time (in multiple heats if we have enough
people; in past years the numbers have been between 10 and 22 people) and
then a team relay event of 8x200. Admittedly, none of us has been close to
the 4 minute barrier individually, but our best relay team almost broke it
one year.

No RSVP required. Just put it on your calendar. And please feel free to
invite any of your running friends who would be interested. If Craig C
can dare to run a mile, anyone can.
