Post Morgan Uceny for Fifth Avenue Mile

NEW YORK - After a disappointing fall during the IAAF World Championships, Morgan Uceny came back to win the Samsung Diamond League 1500 meter title last weekend. She is now ready to take on the Fifth Avenue Mile on Saturday, September 24 it was announced by New York Road Runners president and CEO Mary Wittenberg.

Uceny will make her way down one of the world's most famous thoroughfares against some tough competition. The Mammoth Track Club member will take on an outstanding women's field, which includes fellow Americans and 1500m World Champion Jenny Simpson and two-time defending Fifth Avenue Mile champion Shannon Rowbury, along with World Championships silver medalists Sally Kipyego and Hannah England and World Championships finalists Maggie Vessey and Alysia Montano.

Uceny, 26, of Mammoth Lakes, California, won the 1500 meters at the Brussels Diamond League meet last weekend in the world-leading time of 4:00.06, securing her first Diamond League title. A four-time All-American at Cornell University, Uceny also won the USA 1500m title and Diamond League races in Lausanne and Birmingham earlier this summer.

The Fifth Avenue Mile begins near East 80th Street and finishes at East 60th Street. The wheelchair and handcycle race will kick off the event at 9:00am. After that, entrants will run in heats according to age and gender. The professional women's race is scheduled to start at 12:50pm, followed by the professional men's race at 1:05pm. A total prize purse of $30,000 for the men's and women's professional races will be offered, with the two race champions each receiving $5000.
