By Will Myers, Race Director

The Wall Mile is run in honor of John Wall, a long time advocate for running. John was a member of the ’36 Olympic team and ran with the legendary Jesse Owens. John’s grandson Dave Wall has been the long time co-coordinator of the race honoring his grandfather. This year Dave took a job offer out of state and was not able to participate in coordinating the race. His help and guidance will be missed. The good news is Dave’s father and mother and uncle will continue to attend the race and assist with the award ceremonies.
