From inspired spectator to marathons junkies, there is something for everyone to get outside and exercise.  Here are a few highlighted races:

Sir Walter Miler – spectator race August 3rd

The Sir Walter Miler began due to lack of stateside races for American athletes. In June 2013, Sandy Roberts was coming his best collegiate season, and couldn’t find any meets, that weren’t in Europe, to continue his development. With this position, the “Sandman Mile” was created for Roberts to attempt a sub 4:00 mile with only his brother as the pacer. The event was promoted for only a few days, and would take place at the end of football practice, with the lights still on, at Cardinal Gibbons High School. Hundreds showed up and lined the track to cheer Roberts on. The next year, the Sir Walter Miler took that energy and developed it into a mile-centric event, which has only grown since.

The race has since transformed into a highly competitive run, drawing the fastest 1-mile sprinters from around the world to Raleigh, N.C.  Get out and watch the race on Friday, August 3rd and be inspired to get fast!!
