In the first decade of the 1900's, Wilbur and Orville Wright successfully developed the first working motor operated airplane. Much of their world changing work took place in the Dayton, Ohio area. Just as this region was a launchpad for the Wright Brothers success, we hope that it too will be a launchpad for success for high school, collegiate, and post-collegiate distance runners at the Take Flight Distance Classic.
*Open, unattached, master's, and club athletes are welcome to compete.*
Elite Men's and Women's Mile
The goal for these elite races is to take down the fastest mile ran on Ohio soil for each gender. The current marks stand at 3:56.56 for the men (José Manuel Abascal (ESP) in 1984) and 4:32.29 (Leah O'Connor, Michigan State, 2015) for the women. To help reach this goal, we are offering a $500 bonus if you are under the current record.
