The David Torrence Mile

On September 6th the Long Island Mile is back, and you can be a part of it!
Sayville Running Company, Hoka One One, and Kyle Merber have teamed up to create this unique community event. World class runners will toe the line with hopes of breaking four minutes for the men, and 4:30 for the women. Community runners are encouraged to join the pros and run their own race in one of the heats preceding the elite races.
Lace up your racers, step onto the track, and give your best go at the mile before watching the main event from the infield.
Not interested in racing? No problem. This festival promises to be one of the best spectator events of the year. Whether you are a casual sports fan, or a die-hard track enthusiast, you’ll be sure to enjoy this elite competition and its raucous atmosphere.
Long Island has an incredible running community and we look forward to cheering these athletes through the quickest mile possible!
