Ryan Hall to Run Medtronic TC 1 Mile

Ryan Hall, the fastest marathoner in American history, will test his mettle against the sport’s other signature distance – the mile – next Thursday evening at the Medtronic TC 1 Mile which hosts the USA 1 Mile Road Championships, the event announced today.

Hall, who ran 2:04:58 for 4th place at last month’s Boston Marathon, is a late addition to the event which features two-time defending champion David Torrence. Hall, who is known for his long-distance running exploits – he holds the American Record in the Half Marathon at 59:43 – said a conversation with a marathoning legend prompted the decision to run in the Medtronic TC 1 Mile.
