On Friday, April 20th at 7:00 pm, the PUMA Mile, a popular crowd favorite returns, but with a very special twist.  The ‘twist’ being the goal of treating the always appreciative Mt. SAC Relays Crowd to a sub 4 minute men’s mile and to an equally impressive sub 4:30 mile on the women’s side.  The PUMA Mile is a “classic” race aimed to celebrate the spirit of competition and long standing tradition of the 4 minute mile. 


 PUMA will be offering a total of $10,000.00 in prize money to the first three finishers, in each PUMA Mile race, who cross the finish line in UNDER the 4:00 standard for men and the 4:30 standard for women.  Third place runs away with $1,000, second place $1,500 and first place will pocket a cool $2,500.


If only two finishers break the time standard, the remaining 3rd place $1,000 prize will be split between them.  If only one finisher runs under the standard then he or she will receive the entire $5,000 pot for that race.


PUMA will also be bringing additional fun to the Mt. SAC Relays with social games like ping pong and foosball for spectators/athletes, as well as a T-shirt customization center, photo booth and fan zone.


Join us on Friday, April 20th at 7:00 pm when the assault on the 4 minute mile begins!

All participants will also be timed electronically at 1,500 meters for an ‘en route’ 1,500M time to the mile.

The 1,500M time in the results is valid to use for Olympic Trials or IAAF Standard qualifying.

We have an “elite” 1500 race in addition to our “elite” mile should you prefer to run that distance.

The official times and places from the race are from the final results (not the clock in the stadium).

The Mt. SAC Relays reserves the right to make final determination of all entrants participating in this race. 

It is the responsibility of all collegiate participants to check NCAA rules and regulations concerning your participation in this race.

American crowds love a sub 4 minute mile….we hope you can help us give them one!
