USA Track & Field awards one-mile championships to Grand Blue Mile through 2023


Grand Blue Mile officials from Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Drake Relays have announced that the USA Track & Field one-mile road championships will remain a part of the annual Grand Blue Mile through 2023. The prestigious USATF 1 Mile Road Championships elevate the elite-level competition of the Grand Blue Mile and are expected to annually attract Olympians and world championship participants from across the country to vie for a national title and a share of the $30,000 prize purse. The Grand Blue Mile has hosted more USATF 1 Mile Road Championship events than any other race in the nation, according to Chris Verlengia, Wellmark senior brand marketing manager and co-race director of Grand Blue Mile. The race will also host for a second year the Relays Wellness Challenge — an employer-based team competition to promote a healthier Iowa. Points will be awarded based on participation in the Drake Road Races on April 19 and the Grand Blue Mile. To enroll your organization at no cost, email drakeroadraces@drake.edu or call 515-271-1957.
