On Friday, April 20th at 7:00 pm, the PUMA Mile, a popular crowd favorite returns, but with a very special twist. The ‘twist’ being the goal of treating the always appreciative Mt. SAC Relays Crowd to a sub 4 minute men’s mile and to an equally impressive sub 4:30 mile on the women’s side. The PUMA Mile is a “classic” race aimed to celebrate the spirit of competition and long standing tradition of the 4 minute mile.
PUMA will be offering a total of $10,000.00 in prize money to the first three finishers, in each PUMA Mile race, who cross the finish line in UNDER the 4:00 standard for men and the 4:30 standard for women. Third place runs away with $1,000, second place $1,500 and first place will pocket a cool
$2,500. If only two finishers break the time standard, the remaining 3rd place $1,000 prize will be split between them. If only one finisher runs under the standard then he or she will receive the entire $5,000 pot for that race. PUMA will also be bringing additional fun to the Mt. SAC Relays with social games like ping pong and foosball for spectators/athletes, as well as a TâÃ‚Â€Ã‚Âshirt customization center, photo booth and fan zone.
Watch the PUMA MILE LIVE on Flotrack Friday, April 20th at 7:00 pm PST when the assault on the 4 minute mile begins!
