Distance Night in Palatine 2017

Palatine, IL


Finn Gessner Going For Huge PB In The 1600m This Weekend Apr 18, 2017

This weekend, exclusively on MileSplit, some of the best distance runners in the country will gather to run a fast 1600m at the Distance Night In Palatine.  Although this isn't a full mile, these runners are attempting to get as close to four minutes as possible. Two standouts to look out for are Footlocker runner-up, Finn Gessner & 4:07 miler, Jack Aho.  Finn Gessner has a distance resume as strong as anybody in the country. Gessner owns an 8:47  3200m PB, 4:16 1600m PB and is a two-time Wisconsin XC state champ as well.  To go along with his impressive 4:07  1600m PB, Aho is coming off a very strong XC season this fall as he finished  17th at NXN and 18th at the Footlocker National Championship for XC.Check out more from this meet:-Articles-Videos
