The men’s Mile Run Invitational will feature several top American professional and collegiate athletes including Drew Hunter, who owns an indoor personal best of 3:56.80, set almost six-years-ago, while Eric Holt will look to make a winning start to his season. Shane Streich is also down to compete today and he could be among the spoilers.
Meanwhile, the women’s One Mile Run Invitational at the 2023 Dr. Sander Columbia Challenge this weekend is expected to be an exciting contest with the likes of Alicia Monson and Whittni Orton Morgan headlining the list of starters.
Monson, who will also race here a couple of weeks from now in the 3000m at the Millrose Games, will test her speed as part of her preparations for longer distances.
Keep an eye out for Whittni Orton Morgan, the 2021 NCAA cross country champion, as well as 2022 NCAA Champion and World Championship finalist in the 3000m Steeplechase, Courtney Wayment.
Katelyn Tuohy, the 2022 NCAA cross country champion from NC State, and Helen Schlachtenhaufen, a bronze medalist in the 1500m at the NACAC Championships, are also among the entrants.
