Ryan Hall to run USA 1 Mile Road Championships

Ryan Hall for Mile Race

Ryan Hall will change gears from the marathon to the mile next Thursday evening at the Medtronic TC 1 Mile which hosts the USA 1 Mile Road Championships.Hall, who ran 2:04:58 for 4th place at last month’s Boston Marathon, is a late addition to the Minneapolis event which features two-time defending champion David Torrence. Hall, who is known for his long-distance 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.

“Last weekend I was chatting with Rod Dixon (the 1983 New York City Marathon champion and a 3:53 miler) and he advised me to break four minutes for the mile as soon as possible,” Hall revealed. “While I realize it may take a number of tries to go sub-four, it is a lifelong goal of mine and I believe that if I achieve it, it will certainly help my marathon. I am extremely excited to kick off my spring season at the Medtronic TC 1 Mile where I will compete in my first mile race since 2006.”

Hall’s wife Sara, the 2009 USA Women’s 1 Mile Road Championships runner-up, will also compete at the Medtronic TC 1 Mile.
