2018 Long Island Mile
If we could call one race a "home meet," it would be the The HOKA ONE ONE Long Island Mile. Directed by our own Kyle Merber and hosted just down the road (well... just over the Whitestone bridge and down the Long Island Expressway), we love this meet for its lively fans, star-studded fields and fast races.
In its 4th year, The Long Island Mile is moving to a new venue, Bayshore High School. The action starts on Wednesday, September 5th at 7pm with community races and the professional heats starting at 8:30pm. All are welcome to race their heat and then watch the elites (sign up here). For fans at home, RunnerSpace.com will be offering a FREE LIVE Broadcast of the races.
This year's fields are STACKED and include some of your favorite NJNYTC runners. On the men's side, Graham Crawford and Colby Alexander are returning for the second and third time, respectively. Rob Napolitano will make his first Long Island Mile appearance.
On the women's side, Ce'Aira Brown and Danielle Aragon are new comers to the Long Island Mile. Stephanie Schappert returns for the second year with the distinction of "best handwritten bib of 2016" on her resume.
