June 16 - 1 MILE… the premier event in running.  History was made and the mile became legendary when Roger Bannister broke the 4 minute mile on May 6, 1954.  So whether you are a 4 minute miler or a 15 minute miler lace up your shoes and come out to the Mass Street mile and have a great day with the family.  Participate in the run then stay after to see the Tour of Lawrence.
