Welcome to the Inaugural Ed Murphey Memphis Mile!!!

Memphis is looking for its first sub 4-minute mile on the men’s side and first sub 4:10 metric mile on the women’s side. We could not think of a better way to remember our friend and former University of Tennessee track standout Ed Murphey than to invite elite milers from around the US to take a crack at these historic time barriers right here in the Bluff City! These high caliber mile races will take place at the inaugural Ed Murphey Memphis Mile which will be run under the lights in conjunction with one of HOKA’s Postal National Flagship events at Christian Brothers High School where state, regional and local high school runners will compete over the 3200m distance in preparation for their cross-country seasons.

Come see the ros run under the lights!!
