The Sir Walter Miler hosted local celebrity runners and première athletes in a follow-up to last year’s Sandman Mile an attempt to break the four-minute mile in Raleigh a feat that has not been recorded in 40 years. It was a great night for a run and a terrible night for pictures. We did what we could to record the event but between the lights, the mist and the motion there wasn’t a lot we could control. Congrats to all the runners especially the three top men’s runners that entered the élite club of breaking the four-minute mile.
Also huge congratulations to Meredith College that announced at the event they are adding a Track and Field as a Varsity Sport. Can’t wait till the next year of this event if it continues to grow as it has they’re going to need to add more seats at Meredith to accommodate the crowd.
