Great fields for 5th Ave Mile.
“There is a wave of unprecedented talent in the middle distances in this country, and the Olympic medal haul by our crew is a testament to that,” Simpson said. “I've always enjoyed celebrating the end of a hard fought season at the New Balance Fifth Avenue Mile, and it has been fun returning many times as the defending champion. This year promises to be one I'll never forget, as I return to the race as an Olympic medalist. The New Balance Fifth Avenue Mile will host a number of our country's medalists this year, and so it's going to be a stellar field I have to face. But what a great opportunity for athletes and fans to show off and celebrate this year's Olympic success with a final mile right through the heart of NYC.”
