  • CAMBRIDGE CLASSIC MILE CONFIRMED FOR JUNE 10th, 2006

    For those of you longing for the days of seeing a mile race on a cinder track, or just a fast summer mile in North America, you might be interested in the following. (Also, for any elite milers men/women, they are still looking to fill out the field):


    CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO ------ Organizers of the Cambridge Classic Mile
    announced today the third annual edition of this unique event will be held
    Saturday June 10th, 2006 at Galt Collegiate Institute

    Cambridge native and recent Commonwealth games silver medallist, Nate
    Brannen is scheduled to race at the 2006 Classic Mile in June.

    The clay track at Ontario's oldest high school was the scene of a
    spectacular day of competition a year ago as hundreds of athletes between
    the ages of 6 and 74 celebrated the magic of the four minute mile.

    The Cambridge Classic Mile was founded to commemorate the 50th anniversary
    of Sir Roger Bannister's first sub 4:00 mile on a similar track at
    OxforUniversity.

    Spectators were treated to the incredible performance of Kenya's world
    class miler, Laban Rotich, who won the invitational elite men's mile in a
    time of 3:58.9. Rotich was handed the keys to a brand new car as his
    prizew for achieving what many thought was impossible on GCI's unforgiving
    track.

    Race Director, John Carson is pleased to announce the title sponsors for
    this year's event are Manulife Financial and Brooks Shoe of Canada.

    Media partners for the 3rd annual Cambridge Classic Mile include the Globe
    and Mail and the Record newspapers.

    As the event grows, Carson has added a corporate 4x400 relay. The
    corporate relay will be the final event before the elite runners take to
    the track. Funds raised through the corporate relay will support this
    unique event and grass roots running initiatives.
