A U.S. Olympian will headline the invitational mile run at next month’s Drake Relays. Bernard Lagat ran the 1,500 meters and the 5,000 meters for the U.S. in the 2008 Olympics.
Drake Relays director Brian Brown who says the mile run is always one of the favorite event of the fans. He says a couple of years ago when Alan Webb broke Steve Scott’s record in the mile, there was a buzz around the stadium, and he says they could see the same thing in Lagat’s performance.
The invitational mile is the afternoon of April 24th.
