The coolest running event in Raleigh has become a prototype for how track and field might look as a spectator sport in the future, and Pat Price can explain why.
Show Notes

Pat Price may never break a 4-minute mile, but as one of the people who helped create and put on the annual Sir Walter Miler, he's aided a lot of other runners in accomplishing that goal (and the 4:30 barrier for females) and made it possible for a lot more fast miles to be run on North Carolina soil than ever before.

This year's event is Friday, August 2nd and as usual it will feature a lot of fast runners and a lot of spectators on (not near, ON) the track for the premier events. It will also feature local running clubs, and a race you likely won't see anywhere else (but you have to listen to find out what it is...or just go their web site).

Keeping with the theme we share out #Top3Raleigh running spots--with a lot of help from your nominations--and talk about Moore Square re-opening and a new way to get around downtown. (It's not scooters. They took those away from us.)
