Star studded miles feature Alan Webb, Danielle Tauro, and Steve Murdock

High School - Danielle Tauro NJ and Steve Murdock NY head the Invitational Mile fields, which will reward the winners with an automatic berth in the Millrose Games high school mile at Madison Square Garden Feb. 2.  Southern Regional sr Tauro, last year's top miler in the country, runs her first major race since collapsing at the finish of the Foot Locker Northeast regional at Van Cortlandt Park in November.  Shenendehowa NY sr Murdock comes off a stellar cross country season in which he won the New York public schools championship and Nike Team Nationals and ran 3rd at Foot Locker Nationals.

Elite - High school record holder Alan Webb returns 6 years after his famous 3:59.86 as a high school senior.   Also entered are perennial Armory favorites Amy Mortimer and James Thie, as well as "DyeStat grads" including Webb's high school teammate Richard Smith, Shane Stroup MD, Sara (Bei) Hall CA, Keira Carlstrom VA and Nikiya Green VA.
