FALMOUTH, Mass. - This year’s elite Falmouth Mile promises to be an exciting event on Saturday, August 10, 2013 at 7:00pm at the Falmouth High School track. There will be three races starting with the Tommy Cochary High School Mile that is stacked with stellar high school athletes, followed by the wheelchair and elite races.

These two met recently at the Emsley Carr Mile, where McNamara edged Torrence, 3:52.42 to 3:52.74. They will be joined by Garrett Heath, who finished 3rd last year in his Falmouth debut and is coming off his personal best time of 3:53.15 at the Emsley Carr Mile. Other returning runners include Jack Bolas, Matt Elliot, Will Leer and Craig Miller, who placed 4th at the Falmouth mile in 2012. Making his Falmouth Mile debut this year is runner Duncan Phillips.

In the women's race, Gabriele Anderson, who ran in 2012 (2nd, 4:27.94), 2011 (4th, 4:33.57), and 2010 (2nd, 4:46.27) returns after a season full of personal bests including her 8:42.64 for second place at the IAAF Diamond League 3000m. She faces tough competition from Heather Kampf, who makes her Falmouth debut with a personal best mile time of 4:27.8. Kampf placed 6th at the USA Championships 800m this year and was the 2012 USA Road Mile champion.
