Fleet Feet Syracuse's Asics Blue Jean Mile Event - June 2

Fleet Feet Syracuse's Asics Blue Jean Mile Event - June 2

The Blue Jean Mile is the brainchild of professional middle-distance runner, Johnny Gregorek. In May 2020, when all races and competitions were put on pause, Gregorek was itching for a challenge. But he wanted this challenge to be more meaningful than chasing a fast segment on Strava. Gregorek wanted to push himself physically while also honoring and celebrating the life of his late brother, Patrick. So Gregorek, with Patrick’s memory on his mind, decided to try and break the record for the fastest mile run in a pair of blue jeans.

Join Fleet Feet Syracuse on Sunday, June 2 at the Dewitt location at 8 am with your favorite pair of blue jeans and running shoes to see how fast you can run a mile. There will be a one mile out and back route on the Empire Canal Trail that you can get to from the store. This event benefits NAMI Syracuse.

Asics believes in Sound Mind, Sound Body. In support of mental health awareness, join us to show no one is alone in the fight for mental well being.

Asics will be here with demos and giveaways.
