2015 Bannister Mile

The 11th Annual Bannister Mile Run for our downtown running group will be on Tuesday May 5, 2015 at the East High School Track , start time of 12:30.

Forward this information to anyone who might be interested in joining us for the Mile Run.

This is a timed mile our group runs for fun every year near the anniversary of Roger Bannister breaking the 4 minute mile on May 6, 1954.   Following the timed mile and a brief rest we will run an 8X200 relay in a futile attempt to break the 4 minute mile with 8 person teams.

This is our 11th Bannister Mile since it was organized by Dave Caprera in 2004.
Starting in 2015  Pete Cannici is the official coordinator of the event.

Event Records are:

Men 5:01 (Matt Mussetter 2012, Scott Hajcek 2007)
Women 6:03 (Rebecca Weber 2014)
Team Relay: 4:09 (Team 2, 2009 - Steve, Matt, Chris, Dennis, Mark, Tom, Don, Sonja)
