    Great race!

    But I can’t understand why the organizers did not allow some of the more accomplished local men milers to compete with the three elite milers since there were only three of them.

    To be honest, the winning time of 4:26.51 was not very impressive and I would not call those performances world class. In my opinion Tyler Butterfield, Stephen Allen and Christopher Hands should have been in that lineup.

    I think it would have made a more interesting race, and who knows, one of them may have taken a spot on the podium.

      Spencer. But I agree. And why just 3 in the field? Not like 4:20 guys are hard to find if that’s what the race has devolved into. Congratulations on an exciting race to the guys that ran and thanks for coming. Also to the ladies and all the locals. The local races have been the strength of this event for some time now.
