The Reggie Lewis Center will come alive on February 5, 2011 for three amazingly competitive hours. Now in its 16th incarnation, the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix is an example of how to orchestrate a grand night of athletic competition!
The meet has been known for great high school miles and this year, there will be team scoring, which should make it more interesting (using a cross country type scoring method).
Also note the Lukas Verzbicas, the 2010 FootLocker XC Champ, the 2010 Nike NXN champ, and the adidas GP mile champ, will be running in the invitational mile-think he wants to run fast? More to come!
