One Mile Race?

posted Jan 30, 2012 02:20:26 by SteveDavis
Are there any good one mile races in the general area over the next six months? I've never raced this distance and would like to try it, but I can't find any on the race calendar websites I typically consult. Any suggestions?

Steve, If you are over 35, here is a mile race (my first) that I did last year at The Western States International Invitational in Davis:

Also check out the PAUSATF website under "Track and Field," or "Masters T&F."

Eddie is right, The Western States track meet, not to be confused with the Western States 100, is a nice event. You can run a number of distances all on the track in Davis. Another choice is a road mile. The San Rafael mile July 15 is a PAUSATF event.

Thanks Eddie and Arnold. I recalled that there was something out there (Eddie I think you had mentioned it) but I couldn't find the reference to it online. Very helpful.

hey steve,

how about a 2 miler instead? i ran this 3200 last year on the track and really enjoyed it in a painful sort of way. the field was all over the board speedwise. i wasn't dead last but it was close. if i were healthy, i'd certainly do it again.

I recently heard of a mile race in town to celebrate Randy Sturgeon's 60th.
It's coming in a month or so. I will update when I have details.

I found one in San Francisco March 23-23, Johnny Mathis Meet just added a masters mile

May 27 Masters championship at the College of Marin. All Bay area events.

And Randy Sturgeon is putting on a mile race on April 28th, which is our social run and gathering at University park. The mile in celebration of Randy's 60th is a Granite HS in Folsom.

I signed up again for the 1 mile race at The Western States International Invite on 6/30 in Davis. Maybe I should do some specific training for it this year (whatever that is.)
