This release is about Laura Muir. Olympic silver medalist at 1,500m, WC bronze at 1,500m, Commonwealth gold at 1,500m, and bronze at 800m, and European gold medalist at 1,500 meters this past summer, Laura Muir will be racing with her training partner, Jemma Reekie, at the 115th Millrose Games. Also, in the press release, note that Nike is now the sponsor of the Armory Track & Field Center (more details on that soon).
As the calendar turns to 2023, the 115th Millrose Games are just over a month away, scheduled for Saturday, February 11th, at the Nike Track & Field Center at The Armory. As always, this legendary track & field meet will conclude with the running of the women’s and men’s Rudin Wanamaker Miles, the signature event of the Millrose Games, boasting over a century of tradition.
The Millrose Games is extremely honored that the Rudin Family will be the sponsor of the Wanamaker Miles. Over the past one hundred years, the Rudin Family has become one of New York City’s largest private real estate companies and a generous supporter of running. Jack and Lewis Rudin were the first sponsors of the TCS New York City Marathon, and their children and grandchildren have carried on the legacy, supporting the sport throughout the five boroughs.
“On behalf of the entire Rudin family, we are honored to welcome elite athletes from around the world who have come to New York to compete in the most prestigious mile in the United States,” said Bill Rudin, Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Rudin. “As a founding sponsor of the New York City Marathon, as well as previous Millrose events, running has long held a special place in our family’s heritage and is integral to the fabric of our great city. We wish the best to the athletes competing in the Rudin Wanamaker Miles and all of the other exciting Millrose Games events.”
