The 2022 USATF 1 Mile Road Championships, which is one of the events leading into the 2022 Drake Relays, has assembled a world-class group of elite milers who are ready to test their respective fitness levels as part of their respective preparations for the U.S. Championships later this summer.

Among the leading athletes slated to feature on Tuesday are Rio 2016 Olympic 800m bronze medalist Clayton Murphy and two-time USATF 1 Mile Road champion Emily Lipari.

Ben Blankenship, Craig Nowak, and Hillary Bor are also included in the men’s field, while Abbey Cooper, Alex Teubel, Anna Connor, and Allie Wilson are among the starters on the women’s side.

“We’re excited to continue our longstanding tradition of welcoming America’s best athletes to the Grand Blue Mile in partnership with the Drake Relays,” said Chris Verlengia, Wellmark’s marketing activation and alliance manager and Grand Blue Mile co-race director.

“These athletes embody the true spirit of the Grand Blue Mile — a commitment to healthy habits and the perseverance to achieve their goals. Whether you’re a running enthusiast aiming for a new personal best or simply enjoying a walk with your family, we can’t wait to see you on April 26.” 

A total of $25,000 in prize money will be distributed across the men’s and women’s championships, including a top prize of $5,000 each for the men’s and women’s USATF 1 Mile Road Championships champions.
