Now in it’s eighth year, the Festival of Miles has become a premier sporting event in St. Louis. After having a high school All-Star Mile for three years, Festival of Miles added the 800m to the meet lineup in 2014. The bar was set high with Hannah Long winning the girls race in 2:09 and Daniel Chan of Iowa winning the boys race in 1:53. This year top talent from seven states will toe the line in the First Bank Boys 800m at the Nike Festival of Miles on Thursday. The event will be streamed live on Flotrack.
