Men's 600m 


When:
8:15 PM ET
Why: Brannon Kidder versus Shaquille Walker. The new Brooks Beasts athletes will go head-to-head for the second weekend in a row following Kidder's impressive Millrose Games 1K victory. The two are pretty evenly matched in terms of PBs in the 600m (1:16.98 and 1:17.32) and 800m (1:45.58 and 1:44.99), though Walker does have 46.00 speed outside of a relay.

Men's Mile


When: 9 PM ET
Why: It's an Olympic showdown between Robby Andrews and Andrew Wheating, plus a slew of other talented guys. Andrews will be looking to better his 3:57 season best set in the Wanamaker Mile. The 2016 Olympian will be challenged by two-time Olympian Wheating, Daniel Winn, Mac Fleet, and Sam Penzenstadler. Wheating is coming of a 2:20 1K victory in Boston and just broke ties with the Oregon Track Club Elite. FloTrack caught up with Wheating to talk about his new direction in training:



Watch out for Penzenstadler. He kicked down Andrews on the anchor leg of a 4x8 at the Armory Invitational earlier this year.

Women's 1000m


When
: 7:55 PM ET
Why: Former Villanova great Stephanie Schappert will run her first 1K since 2015. The Hoka One One NJNYTC athlete ran big personal bests in her first year as a pro in 2016 (2:03 and 4:09) and went against talents like Rolanda Bell, Stephanie Herrick, and Brigitte Mania.

Women's Mile


When:
9:10 PM ET
Why: Justine Fedronic is coming off a 2:01.36 fourth-place personal best in the insanely fast Millrose Games 800m. The former Stanford All-American and French Olympian has not raced a mile since her 4:39 PB set in 2014. Considering she broke 2:00 for the first time last summer and ran a massive indoor best last weekend, Fedronic is on the right track to set another PB this Saturday. She'll go toe-to-toe with Rolanda Bell (Also entered in the 1000m), who ran a five second PB of 4:38 at the New Balance Indoor Games and a nine second PB in the 3K (9:09) at the Armory Invite.
