The New Balance Azusa Meet of Champions takes place this Saturday at Azusa Pacific University. Last year's meet resulted in Connor Dunne (San Clemente) winning the stacked boys' mile in 4:04.59 and leading ten other runners under 4:10. According to the meet website, new world records were established with 405 boys dipping under the 5 minute mark along with 268 girls under the 6 minute mark. This year's version promises to bring some of the best distance runners in the state to test themselves and throw down some great distance times.
MileSplitCA will be present at the meet with one of our ace photographers, Ben Crawford. A meet preview will also be be posted later this week.
