A record crowd of more than 2,000 watched the fastest edition yet of the Nike Festival of Miles. Temperatures in the 70s with little to no wind made for perfect racing conditions at Saint Louis University High School and the athletes did not disappoint.
The night's premier event, the Saint Louis Track Club Men's Mile, featured Jordan McNamara (Nike OTC Elite) who addressed the crowd before the race and asked them for their help as he was going after the meet record of 3:55.29.
“These guys all want to break four and I want to go 3:54," McNamara said. “We're going to need you to be going absolutely crazy the whole entire time to do it."
The crowd obliged and so did McNamara, running a blistering last lap to finish in 3:54.27, ahead of Duncan Phillips (3:56.10) and Tommy Schmitz (3:56.45). Chris Gowell also broke four minutes in 3:58.90.
